RUDEBOY: The Story of Trojan Records

RUDEBOY: The Story of Trojan Records
Nicolas Jack Davies / 2018, UK, 85 min

The iconic ska, reggae and rock-steady label is a timely and wide-ranging celebration of british Jamaican working-class youth culture.

A film about the love affair between Jamaican and British Youth culture told through the prism of one the most iconic record labels in history, TROJAN RECORDS. Combining archive footage, interview and drama – RUDEBOY tells the story of Trojan Records by placing it at the heart of a cultural revolution that unfolded in the council estates and dancefloors of late 60’s and early 70′ Britain and how that period of immigration and innovation transformed popular music and culture. Told by a cast of legendary artists including Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry, Toots Hibbert, Ken Boothe, Neville Staple, Marcia Griffiths, Dave Barker, Dandy Livingstone, Lloyd Coxsone, Pauline Black, Derrick Morgan and more.
