Brigadier Jerry

Brigadier Jerry live in New York City. (1990)

Briggy has always been a favorite conscious deejay. It would be hard to name a favorite tune but yesterday I was listening to the Studio One 12″ I have, Every Man Is Mi Bredrin. It’s a wicked tune where he talks about being friends with just about everyone and then calls out the other deejays as his friends as well. Here is a part of the lyrics:

And every deejay is mi bredrin says me, yes every deejay is mi bredrin says we

Like a man Ringo and Lone Ranger, Macka Rankin Joe and Sassafras

Like Nicodemus, Shinehead and Santa, the man Jose Wales and Charlie Chaplin

Every man is mi bredrin still, cuz every man him mi bredrin still, cuz every man is mi bredrin still
