I Don’t Want To Go Insane

Back from a very pleasant week away and this song has been digging it’s way into my head all week, due to it soundtracking the adverts for This Is England ’86 on Channel 4. The first digital reggae track, and this being Jamaican reggae there are copious stories and legends about it- apparently there are over 180 versions of Wayne Smith’s Under Me Sleng Teng, and it may or may not be based on Eddie Cochran’s Something Else (which featured in Bagging Area’s Friday Night Rockabily series some time back). I’m no expert on modern reggae in any way, but this is a tip top track.
