JOHNSON, LINTON KWESI
Artist Info: LKJ was born August 24th 1952 in Jamaica and migrated to UK in 1963. Dub Poet, singer, songwriter, musician, producer, polital activist LKJ since over 25 years is one dominating factor in UK reggae. Because of him we know about Dub Poetry. Because of his we know about the situation of individual black sufferers in UK. He released some of his poems in book form, as songs and as a-capella citings. He is dealing with the reality of humans often telling individuals sad stories. All his poems showed to have the potential to be up to date for decades. His dub albums are minimalistic trance-like drum and bass with synthi and vocal samples. His live performances are unique as some songs are played with supporting Dennis Bovell Dub Band and some songs are done a capella like a poetry reading. His first five albums are released on UK Island, all later albums are released on his own LKJ label. His website is:
