Genesis, Skabacab


No too many know about prog-pop supergroup Genesis's all-ska project, Skabacab. Recorded at Dynamic Sounds Studio in Kingston, Jamaica, the summer 1981 after the sessions for their 11th album, Abacab, the sessions were all-reggae and ska takes on the tracks from the Abacab project. Dissent in the Genesis ranks prevented the tracks from being included on the 2007 reissue of the Abacab album, but hardcore fans, who have yet to hear the reggae version of "Man on the Corner" and "No Reply at All," hold out hope that the tracks will resurface some day.

  1. What archive service are you using, Daniel? When I tried to find where a well known artist was hanging out in Jamiaca in 1987, the Caribbean Ready Retrieval Archivists and Spontaneous Librarians Association charged me $225.00 and only gave me the number of a cab service.
