wrongtom & ed zed sift through a plethora of punk & post-punk oddities to pick their favourite approximations of punk, dub & reggae.

1st release from new label rongorongo focuses on the lesser known practitioners of punky reggae, with the odd iconic act snuck in for good measure. features “america’s greatest unknown band” the offs' 'cool down', dubbed-out liverpudlian dancehall from jah scouse, rasta hardcore punk from bad brains, acclaimed writer & punk professor vivien goldman's short-lived group chantage (with faders manned by dub experimentalist adrian sherwood), a certain ratio in their sir horatio guise & much more.
