Devon Clarke follows in Tenor Saw’s footsteps.


Devon Clarke - Call Me Bobo SawDevon Clarke has been recording since the mid-80s and now – about 30 years after his first singles – his debut album has been released via US label Bent Back Records. Devon Clarke has mostly worked with Massive B and Digital English, but he hasn’t really recorded much over the years.

His style is reminiscent of mid-80s giants Tenor Saw, Nitty Gritty, King Kong and Anthony Red Rose. A simple, smooth, hypnotic and flat style with catchy melodies delivered over old school synthesized riddims.

The set comes with ten tracks – vocals on one side and versions on the other. The standout cut is Beat the Banker, on which he rides a moody version of King Tubby’s fierce Tempo riddim. Other highlights include the JohnnyGo Figure combination Soldier and a remix of Hangin’ in Deh, originally released in 2014 on Bent Back.

Call Me Bobo Saw is mid-80s digital reggae at its very best.

Call Me Bobo Saw was released on October 23th, 2017, and is available from Bent Back Records on LP, CD, and digital download.
