Lone Ranger Interview :
(...)
What do you think of this "Kulchaklash" album by the way?
LR - "The Kulchaklash concept-album is very good. This is the Lone Ranger going back to some original flavours, recreating the original rub-a-dub vibe flowing... The artwork is really beautiful. TIMEC did some good work on there: you can't miss Chester! Ray I you catch him good too."

Grant Phabao, alias "Dub Salvador" pour certains en manque de mix vraiment profond, "Je Sais Pas Ou Il Va Chercher Ses Oreilles" pour d'autres, est parti en 2003 à Kingston (Jamaïque), jusqu'à New York (USA) en passant par le studio La Pinède à Paris (France!), pour produire deux albums de reggae comme un véritable Lee Perry ou King Tubby, avec la minutie d'un Herbie Hancock et d'un Mike Marsh (The Exchange). Le bouche-à-oreille bat son plein et les invités se bousculent aux sessions organisés par le Grant. Un premier album voit finalement le jour début 2004, avec en invité de marque une des inventeurs du rub-a-dub (plus tard ragga), légende de chez Studio One, Lone Ranger, et quelques-uns de ses amis, parmi lequels Ray I (célèbre pour son "Weatherman Skank" ou ses collaborations avec Jacob Miller) ou Danny Dread. Un chef d'oeuvre de reggae roots aux tubes multiples (la cover de "Fever"!).

DISRESPECT AGAIN !
greetings to you Timec crew !
I know a guy called Martin who pretends to be responsible for the organ intro on "A Who"
Could it be possible that you forgot to credit him for his incredible performance ?
C U, soon !

Yes it's possible that we forgot Martin somehow. I must admit it's even more than possible, it's certain!
PS We know this message is from you Martin...
