MISTY IN ROOTS

THE MEMBERS 

MISTY IN ROOTS are an institution in reggae circles, and their music sounds just as mesmerising as it did back in the seventies. As a live act they’re unmatched, which is why they’re still hypnotising audiences with their insistent, roots reggae rhythms at concerts and festivals the world over. 

Misty’s unique style evolved from the spiritual vibrations of Africa, coupled with influences from the Caribbean and life in Britain’s inner cities. It’s music that celebrates and confronts, and there’s a sense of togetherness at their gigs that you rarely find elsewhere. It’s been like that since they first got together in Southall, West London, but then it was never just about the music. By 1979 they’d formed a collective and started a record label called People Unite. They released their legendary Live At The Counter Eurovision ’79 that same year – a debut that Radio One DJ John Peel described as “possibly the greatest reggae album of all time.” He was very influential in spreading the word about them, and broadcast some unforgettable sessions with Misty at a time when they regularly played on the same bill as punk bands – most notably at Rock Against Racism events.

THE MEMBERS were always the thinking punk’s band of choice; angry but intelligent, a suss reggae sensibility and songs that, - Neil Spencer, The Observer & Uncut "The Members are an essential band that emerged from the musical revolution of the late 1970's, but while they are rightly regarded as punk they have always been beyond labels, their lyrics merging stories of everyday life with a dynamic, maverick style".
