A tribute to Chunky, celebrating his massive contribution to reggae music.
Talisman were one of the UK's top Roots Reggae bands in the later 70's and early 80's.The band's prowess earned them support slots with acts as diverse as Burning Spear, The Clash and The Rolling Stones. They have reformed with the original line up after 30 years apart to support the re-release of their classic roots single ‘Dole Age’ on a brand new album 'Dole Age - The 1981 Reggae Collection'. One of Bristol's finest live acts are back and ready to party once again. Originally formed in 1977 Talisman were consummate performers constantly vying for the title of one of the country's most popular live reggae bands. They toured the UK building up a loyal following and leaving memories of gigs that are still discussed to this day.
THE MIGHTY DUB GENERATOR
Formed by producers Farhead & Wilbert, from a desire to play live the sort of tunes people cannot resist liking – Hit Songs in a serious Reggae style, but remaining true to each songs’ style in their own way. As a live Band, through infectious tunes that people cannot ignore having grown up with them, the wide appeal of the various genres they play, and a super-smooth Reggae sound that pushes your body to move itself, they seriously energize a crowd!
