Their frontman packs it all in and turns to teaching, with no plans to make a record again. Then, in 2017, he produces the album of his career – with the help of some school children, and a group of first year students from Leeds.

Stemation is a reggae and dub event based on the UK's soundsystem culture.
It will be powered by 'Tip-A-Tone Soundsystem', an authentic speaker system, built and replicated for the striking bass of roots reggae records. This is a very special soundsystem in its significance to the history of Reggae music, holding particular prominence in the mid-1970s in Jamaica, involved in sound clashes with the most notorious of Jamaican soundsystems of the era.
The legendary Jerry Dammers, 2-Tone icon and main man with ska favourites The Specials, has also carved out a sizeable following as a DJ, playing retro-future mood music from jazz to library, electronic to dub and was bestowed with Q Magazine's Lifetime Merit Award, so its only right we bring him to Stroud to host a DJ extravaganza at THE MARSHALL ROOMS!

Authenticity is that rarest of components; the most wanted, yet the hardest to come by. The one that can’t be bought. The one that can’t be faked. Bristol’s Scott Hendy has it. Twelve years of hard work, plying his trade, fine-tuning his art have seen to this. A DJ and producer who has remained creative through it all – before Bristol’s musical name meant something, while genres were being created, and after the dust settled – he shows no signs of slowing down. None whatsoever.
