Biography

From Antigua, this band represents the epitome of the high-energy, multiple-influenced, synthesizer-driven soca bands of some of the other soca islands. Years of tourist gigs and a stint as backup band to Montserrat calypsonian Arrow laid the groundwork for their solo debut ... total domination of the Antigua carnival in 1986 with Stiley Tight. Elements of rock, funk, reggae, cadence, zouk, and more, put to frenetic tempos of amphetamine-like proportion, were the trademark of this band until 1989's "Workey Workey," a funky, zoukish second-line that was an international sensation. They zouked it out further in 1990 with "Chook and Dig" and shortly afterward were anthologized on a Mango release, Dig, although the re-mixing done for the record worked to the detriment of each cut. They have taken Antigua Road March almost every year since 1985. ~ Gene Scaramuzzo
