The eponymous album debut of the New Age Steppers.
With Arianna Foster a.k.a. Ari Up - the vocalist from the Slits, one of the original "girls with attitude" bands. The Slits, along with other UK outfits like the Clash and the Ruts, felt a close association with the rebel axis of reggae music. For the Slits this link was most creatively manifested in their work with Dennis "Blackbeard" Bovell, a largely unrecognised genius in the area of UK reggae production. Along with Ari came Neneh Cherry, a few years short of her international stardom, step-daughter of jazz legend Don Cherry.
Like all the other DTS surround sound projects, these tracks can only be played back by systems & players that are set up with a DTS decoder onboard. These are not stereo tracks. Playing back on anything else will produce static. DTS projects are not meant to be played back on stereo CD players or PC's unless there is a DTS decoder present.
