A girlfriend of short duration made me listen to this as a condition of a good shag. The shag although it dragged on for four years, was forgettable, my performance and behaviour was sub zero, but the music is in the control of a master dubber and remains in my collection. Other than tracks from Matumbi, I have found Dennis Bovell hard going. I have liked what he has created for others but his solo stuff like "Brain Damage" tends to be uninspiring. But "I Wah Dub"-now on vinyl, remains a cruisey, interesting mix of sound and styles from the opening surge of "Electrocharge" to the easy skanking "Steadie". The toilet emptying of drums and melodica of "Blaubert", it takes you on a satisfying musical trip. Highly recommended for lovers of British eighties reggae.
