Product Description

CD Description

Featuring Lynval Golding & Sir Horace Panter (The Specials) and co-produced by John Collins (Ghost Town), Pama Outernational brings you the heavyweight dub sounds of now. Picking up where 2008’s critically acclaimed Loved Filled Dub Band album left off, Pama Intl shamelessly hold their influences high. King Tubby & Lee Perry’s dub stylings meet the soul sounds of 1960’s stax; the classic sounds of yesteryear, with a social commentary firmly cemented in the 21st century. Alongside Pama founders Sean Flowerdew, Finny and The Specials/Fun Boy 3’s Lynval Golding, Pama Outernational features a wonderfully diverse array of musical talent, including members from Lord Large, Bentley Rhythm Ace, Kasabian, PWEI and Lynval’s fellow 2 Tone band mate, Sir Horace Panter.

The album is co-produced by Sean Flowerdew and producer of The Specials iconic Ghost Town, John Collins. In 2006 Pama Intl became the first new band in 30 years to sign to Trojan Records. In 2008 they released Love Filled Dub Band which received a host of 4-star reviews from magazines including Mojo, Record Collector, Echoes and Touch.

BBC Review

Although much is made of this group’s international musical style – chiefly dub and roots reggae from Jamaica, and funky and pop soul from the southern US – their most pertinent aspect lies in their Englishness, and the UK music scene’s peculiar capacity to ‘borrow’ from all over the place then craftily customise to fit that new situation.

With a line-up that includes representatives of such singular Britishness as two former Specials (Lynval Golding and Horace Panter), Ghost Town’s producer (Sean Flowerdew), Pop Will Eat Itself’s drummer (Fuzz Townshend) and a trumpeter who hires out to Kasabian (Gary Aylesbrook), it’s hardly surprising that their songbook is filtered through a variety of unique musical domesticity. Less expected, however, is the subtlety with which this realignment occurs.

Thanks to a solid grounding in and understanding of the genres they are working in, Pama International can create a solid enough foundation to allow them to shape and soften the edges in keeping with its circumstances. As a result, hard-stepping roots tunes like Equality & Justice for All or Still I Wait, or the sanctified soul of Are We Saved Yet?, or smooth Studio One-type reggae such as What You Do Now, Dub A Dance and Dub A Disco, becomes far less of a challenge than the originals might prove, but lose none of the essence. It’s a move that will keep hardcore fans happy, yet sound familiar and inviting enough for much wider acceptability.

Even more attractive than that is the sense of continuity within a collection of seemingly disparate styles, as such crafty customising gives a defined feel to the entire tracklist. This allows it to fit together perfectly, regardless of how far the running order jumps across genres.

Hence Pama Outernational comes across like a house party deejayed by somebody with a very deft touch and an altogether adventurous selection policy – after a couple of tunes you’re not at all sure what you’re going to hear next, but you know enough to trust it implicitly. --Lloyd Bradley

I have been a massive ska lover for 30 years now and this album is absolutley superb, everysong is simply breathtaking. Stand out tracks for me are Are we saved yet?, I still love you more and Still I wait. If mainstream radio played any of these songs I guarantee they would reach high in the charts. The base lines are monster (Sir Horace Gentleman) and the Ska riffs fantastic (Lynval) along with some fantastic brass solo's. I would thouroghly recommmend this album and whilst you are there buy The Trojan Sessions aswell.
Congrats to Sean and Finny on a ska masterpiece.
