Culture’s debut album established the roots reggae group in their Jamaican homeland and in the UK, where they were embraced by the rising punk movement. The delicious sunny-side-up melodicism, lazy horns and languid grooves are as addictive here as their spiritual, social and political insights are intelligent and poetic. The title song is a doomsday warning, See Them a Come rails against poverty and Pirate Days is all about divine transformation. Lead singer Joseph Hill was a militant Rasta, and here he’s a street-corner prophet winning true believers. Two Sevens Clash Culture.
