Back in 2008/2009 in a disused shop in West London, musicians Andy Baron and Richie Concrete hosted some reggae jam sessions attracting an amazing group of UK-based reggae artists including drummer Richie Stevens, percussionist Jeff Scantlebury and trombonist Winston Rollins. Rebel Control is the evolution of these jam sessions sharing their passionate music with listeners on a global basis. After a brief hiatus, Brighton-based band return with their single ‘We Nah Got No Money (But We Got Love)’.
When ‘We Nah Got No Money (But We Got Love) was chosen to be an independent single, it was tracked by Graham Pilgrim in total isolation in Rome at the peak of the coronavirus epidemic. Originally inspired by the touching displays of community spirit after the Grenfell Tower disaster, this single now speaks to the global COVID pandemic using digital collaborations to make it what it is. A thought-provoking, insightful, raw and honest piece of music, Rebel Control have hit the spot with ‘We Nah Got No Money (But We Got Love)’. I can’t wait to see what’s around the corner with this reggae sensation.
“With the ongoing COVID situation and the current tensions in America, it just feels right to release a track that’s purely about love, positivity and community into the world right now.” – Rebel Control on ‘We Nah Got No Money (But We Got Love)’
