2nd Hand - Media: NM Sleeve: NM Little roy releases 'battle for seattle', through ark recordings. a collection of 10 songs recorded by nirvana in a reggae style, the album is the brainchild of prince fatty, aka mike pelanconi and the mutant hi-fi, aka nick coplowe, and it features the vocal talents of little roy, one of the great singers from jamaican music's classic era in the 1960s and '70s, who cut tunes with studio one, matador, prince buster and lee 'scratch' perry. being a fan-of-old, nirvana was the obvious choice for prince fatty when considering the idea of a 'whole album cover version'. with a heavyweight figure like little roy on the team, 'battle for seattle' was never going to be anything other than totally authentic. recorded old-fashioned style, using tape and vintage analog equipment. prince fatty's band included horseman, mafia, from mafia and fluxy, bubblers (from the ruff cut band), erstwhile wailers guitarist, junior marvin and george dekker of the pioneers.
