Did you just say "INNART"???

I knew MC BUFFALO was really you for some strange reason...

Think there was also bluebeat and rock steady before reggae.
apparently rock steady came after ska, as the result of a particularly hot summer in Jamaica, thus the bands slowed the tempo for the dances and rock steady developed! jokes...

dont know about bluebeat tho? whats that?
Ska came first,which was essentially the Jamaican version of American Soul/RnB.Then came Rock Steady,then Rockers,next Crackers,then Reggae.The earliest roots of Dub was concieved within all of this.

Coincidentally,the term "skinhead" is also Jamaican.English working class youth only adopted it after the great West Indian migration to the UK in the late '50s/early '60s,mainly in the ports where West Indians could easily get work.

Upstroke actually.In a 4/4 beat,it is strummed up and muted down in the halfstep:1~and~2~and~3~and~4~ [~=mute;and=upstroke]

Used to play in a few ska bands back in the day. :D

I'd say he kinda does both.Look at the differences between 'John Public' and the classic 'Night Nurse'.The man is a legend in that way.Horace Andy has always had love songs too.And let's not forget good ol' Desmond Dekker,who did it ska,rock steady,and reggae.I'd almost have to say that those three were the biggest influences on Lovers Rock.

All Lover's rock is really is the UK's answer to Reggae.There have always been love themes in Reggae,which unfortunately has a common stereotype that it's only about suffering and politics.Rock'n'Roll is pretty much an American concept,but The Beatles,The Stones,and Led Zeppelin are considered Rock.Is it not Rock because it's not American?I think not.The exchange of ideas is a universal art,which can yield wonderful results.Lovers Rock is just one of them.And so is Dubstep. 8)
