SOUND SYSTEM CULTURE
ONE LOVE BOOKS
Following on from 2012′s excellent Clarks In Jamaica, One Love Books has just released another beautifully presented publication for those of you fascinated by the unique – and often unexpected – cultural overlap between the UK and JA.
Sound System Culture, Celebrating Huddersfield’s Sound Systems is an 128-page hardback that casts a spotlight on the northern market town of Huddersfield’s surprising contribution to all things reggae music.
As unlikely as it might now seem, Huddersfield was once the sound-system capital of the UK, with various systems and collectives calling it home.
Packed with previously unseen archive photography, flyer and poster art, as well as words with the key movers in the Huddersfield scene, the book achieves its objective of ensuring West Yorkshire’s influence on sound system culture is never forgotten.
Sound System Culture is available now to buy for £19.99 from the One Love Books website
