about

I LOVED THE LOVERS ROCK STYLE AS SOON AS I HEARD IT, IN THE LATE SEVENTIES. I ALWAYS SAW IT AS A HYBRID LONDON THING. A LOT OF REGGAE AFICIONADOS LOOKED DOWN THIER NOSES AT IT, FEELING THAT IT WAS NOT AUTHENTIC. IT WAS ALSO SEEN AS MORE OF A ‘GIRL’S THING’. IT WAS SEEN MAYBE AS LACKING MUSCULARITY, AS COMPARED TO MORE MINOR KEY REBEL/POLITICAL TUNES. I LIKED IT FOR ITS MUSICALITY AS MUCH AS ANYTHING. I’M NOT SAYING THAT I DIDN’T LIKE HEAVY DUTY DUB ETC , OBVIOUSLY I DID, BUT LOVERS ROCK WAS ESSENTIALLY THE URBAN POP MUSIC OF ITS TIME. IT WAS ABOUT TIME I HAD A STAB AT IT.
