Can't Wait to See This!

Finally the godfathers of Sound System in the UK: Duke Vin and Count Suckle get the historical documentation they deserve! This looks to be a fascinating documentary on early Sound System culture in England.
I had the pleasure of meeting Duke Vin through Bob Brooks, at the Duke's sheebin in Notting Hill, and he spent the entire evening playing me tapes of early Ska and Jamaican R&B. I didn't leave until about 6:00AM the next morning completely rat arsed and red eyed from all the smoke as they keep all the windows shut tightly to conceal the noise of the sound system in what is essentially an illegal drinking den!
