Mungo’s Hi Fi featuring Mr Williamz – Industry

• “Industry” set to a picture of the 7″ label. Thanks to Mungo’s Hi Fi.

8.3 “Fantastic Reggae from Scotland / England”

Released as a 7″ single in February, 2017.

Still going strong almost 20 years on, Glasgow’s champion sound system back west Londoner Mr Williamz (Micah Williams) as they did several years previously. Williamz has kept himself very busy with well over 50 singles to his name since 2008, and made his acting debut playing the role of soundsystem DJ Red Katz in the Idris Elba directed “Yardie” in 2018.

As the promo blurb told it:

Prince Fatty and Horseman have laid a deeply dubby reggae lick-over of the backing to Derrick Harriott’s 1967 hit Solomon. In keeping with the original’s gender political lyrics, the unflappable Mr Willz shrugs off an encounter with a woman more attracted to the glamour of the sound business than him.

It seems like she want produce a medley” cracks me up! And the moral of the story is? Never mess with the man with the mic!

Weh me say

She she, she love the industry
She no love me, she love the industry
She no love me, she love the industry
She no love me, she love the industry
She no love me, she love the industry

She no want no movie star she see in a movie
No want no actor weh she see pon the TV
She love soundman and she love MC
So each and every weekend she deh a party
And just inna wah day inna London City
Me sight her inna the front row ah smile with me
But the week before that me sight her with YT
And the week before that me sight her with Solo B

She she, she love the industry
She she, she love the fraternity

Me step off ah the stage and she ah rush after me
Hold on pon me hand and she ah kiss off ah me
She tell me say tonight she ah spar with me
She want me fi take her to the VIP
Then she ask me if me know Charlie P
And tell me say she want fi meet the Mungo’s Posse
She want know Ian and she want meet Dougie
She want meet James and she want know Jimmy
Cause it no really matter where inna England
Whether Wales or inna Scotland
Or whether in Leeds or Birmingham
And just inna wah day when we deh ah Nottingham
She tell me say she want fi meet the entire gang
She want meet Craig and she want meet Tom
She say she know Mark from Iration
She want meet Mikey Dread from Channel One
She know Gabriel and the Heatwave Gang
It seems like she planning a big promotion
Cause little after that when we ah dance two song
And every thing nice and the vibes get strong
I ask the deejay fi change the version
She run left me when she sight Rodigan

She no love me, she love the industry
She no love me, she love the industry
follow me
She no love me, she love the industry
She no love me, she love the fraternity

Say them no stop follow we, follow we
Say them no stop follow we, follow we
Them ah cry out fi we, cry out fi we
Them ah cry out fi we

She no want no movie star she see in a movie
No want no actor weh she see pon the TV
She love soundman and she love MC
And just inna wah day inna London City
Me sight her inna the front row ah smile with me
But the week before that me sight her with YT
And the week before that me sight her with Solo B
It seems like she want produce a medley

She no love me, she love the industry
She no love me, she love the industry
follow we
She no love me, she love the industry
She no love me, she love the fraternity

Now special request to the girls weh a run down MC
