Strictly Rubbadub

This track is a dub reworking of the track Slow Country, by the Space Monkeyz for the album Laika Come Home'.Slow Country lends itself excellently to the reggae treatment and the reworking sounds as natural as the original. U Brown provides additonal skanking over the top, about nothing in particular - but it sounds good and suitably authentic
