The Twinkle Brothers defend roots reggae culture.

Sampler

Twinkle Brothers - Culture DefenderThe Twinkle Brothers have stayed true to their roots for more than 30 years. They started in the 60’s as a hotel-circuit band, but transformed to one of the deepest and most spiritual vocal harmony groups in roots reggae music.

Their debut album 'Rasta Pon Top' – put out in 1975 – included titles such as Give Rasta Praise and Beat Them Jah Jah set the standard.

They’ve continued in the same vein ever since and have relentlessly put out albums with positive and defiant messages. Cross-over is just not for Ralston and Norman Grant and they won’t succumb to lyrical slackness.

The latest album from The Twinkle Brothers is 'Culture Defender' – the follow-up to the excellent Barry Issacs-produced 'Praises to the King' showcase set released in 2009.

'Culture Defender' is produced by Gussie P and combines The Twinkle Brothers two showcase ten inches on the Sip a Cup label together with unreleased mixes to the in demand Repent showcase as well as an unissued tune and some exclusive dub mixes.

Norman Grant’s agitating chesty delivery together with militant and heavyweight steppers riddims provided by talents such as Mafia & Fluxy makes this a crucial set for anyone who is interested in warrior-styled roots reggae.
