It’s good to see reggae back with the punk crowd. Reggae, punk and ska have had a close relationship since the 1970s, but lately it seems that even ska-punk-bred American reggae bands like Slightly Stoopid and Pepper have been more in tune with the stoner/jam band scene than the followers of the Clash, Bad Brains, and the Specials. And somewhere between acting as Tim Armstrong’s back-up band for his debut solo A Poet’s Life and touring the continent with Dropkick Murphys and Sick of It All, the Aggrolites managed to put together one of the most solid reggae records in recent years, and one that will put reggae back on the leather jackets of kids from Los Angeles to NYC.
