Jennie Bellestar and The Artist Taxi Driver featuring Dub Syndicate and Skip McDonald – The Most Dangerous Man In Britain

• “The Most Dangerous Man In Britain” set to, er, a banner of the most dangerous man in Britain. Thanks to chunkymark.

8.4 “Fantastic Reggae from England”

Streamable via YouTube from August 2015.

I picked up on this killer cut via the September 2015 edition of the Rocker show on Dandelion Radio. A new, slightly touched-up mix appeared a year later on the compile “Contra Pop Festival 2015: An Historical Document”, released August 29, 2016 via Bandcamp.

Really great to hear Jennie Bellestar – who sang on the greatest pop tune ever – is still in fine form.

Eugenie Matthias, better known as Jennie Bellestar or Jennie Matthias, first burst onto the pop scene in the well loved 80’s all-girl band The Belle Stars back in 1981. Since then, the Camden Town lass has kept her hand in down throughout the decades with a variety of projects as a singer, songwriter and poet.

Mark McGowan (born 9 June 1964) is a British street artist, performance artist and prominent public protester who has gone by the artist name Chunky Mark and more recently The Artist Taxi Driver. By profession, McGowan is a London taxi driver and occasional University speaker and arts tutor. McGowan is known internationally for his performance art including shock art, street art and installation art, and as a stuntman, internet personality, video blogger, social commentator, social critic, satirist, political activist, peace activist, and an anti-establishment, anti-war, anti-capitalist anti-monarchist and anti-power elite protester.

Dub Syndicate is a dub band, formed by Adrian Sherwood, which became a showcase for Adrian Sherwood’s collaboration with Lincoln “Style” Scott, former drummer with the Roots Radics and Creation Rebel.

No project fear could ever hope to overcome this potent collaborative force – what a delivery!
