David Katz & Suburban Pirate

A feature of the recent protests against Lewisham library closures was the presence of Suburban Pirate with Sly and Reggie touring the threatened libraries with their self-proclaimed Middle Class Sound System - a mobile dub broadcasting sound system on the back of a black Morris Minor (see picture at Blackheath Bugle). They've even recorded a We Love Libraries track.

Tomorrow night (Friday 18th Februay), Sly and Reggie will be doing a live set at the Old Nun's Head in Nunhead, as part of a night put on by reggae writer and DJ David Katz. David hosts the regular night Dub Me Always at The Ritzy, Brixton and is the author of two major reggae books: People Funny Boy: The Genius of Lee "Scratch" Perry and Solid Foundation: An Oral History of Reggae.

Friday from 9pm-1am, admission free.
