Exclamation TIDs (4) #1 - Grimson

A very warm welcome back TIDdy fans as we embark on series 4 of Tissue Island Discs - the essential forum mix of tunes & United.

After a critically acclaimed 3rd series, the pressure is on (yet again) to deliver, and I'm confident the mix of new blood & stalwarts I have lined up for you, will make this series as enjoyable as ever..

One slight tweak in the format is that the favourite book & luxury item have been dropped, to be replaced with the United Player/Manager (past or present) you'd take with you to keep you company on Tissue Island.

So without further ado, let's get on with the show and welcome our first guest who has been waiting patiently in the green room - Grimson

Here are his selctions:

Burning Spear - Jah Kingdom


Brothers Johnson - Strawberry Letter 23


The Zombies - Time of The Season


Tintern Abbey - Beeside


Spacemen 3 - Big City


Aardvarks - I'm Higher Than I'm Down


The Stingers - Preacher Man


Nancy Sinatra & Lee Hazlewood - Some Velvet Morning


Good Evening Grimmers and welcome to TID Towers, I trust you had a pleasant flight over to the UK - a very psychedelic vibe to your selections...

Thanks for having me brens. I am of course a fan of all things psych, which tends to extend into my reggae and dub favourites as well. I find psychedelia to be a great antidote to daily stress, etc.

No finer genre to take the mind to other places...

So, your first selection is Jamaican reggae & roots legend, Winston Rodney, and his 1991 offering from the same album title Jah Kingdom

Why does this make the list...?

This one is all about memories. It's far from his best work - by this period, his band wasn't as raw and hard-edged.

In 1995 I was living with a miserable, depressed woman, which was as much fun as it sounds. I'd always wanted to live in the Florida Keys, and finally got the courage to break up with her, pack up my car, and move there sight unseen. I was playing this CD in my car the first time I saw the spectacular colours of the ocean surrounding the islands, and I played it every day whilst I drove around looking for a new place to live. Every time I listen to it now, it takes me right back to that place - liberation, brethren!

Aha. Well she was a beautiful woman and she's 40 now and still beautiful, but still about as much fun as malaria.

edit - here she is visiting me in the Keys the year after I made the break.
