Strike Him Dead

As far as I know, Barber Saloon was Michael Campbell a.k.a. Mikey Dread's first single. The legendary Jamaican dj just wanted you to know that natty dread did not have any business on the premises of a hairdresser. Classic stuff, bald heads. Roots time!

Mikey Dread - Barber Saloon

Fantastic, fantastic, fantastic. I saw Mikey with The Clash quite a few times at the start of the 1980s and this tune brings back very happy memories.
(Towards the end of the 80s, Mikey re-recorded 'Barber Saloon' under the title 'Rude Little Dread', but it wasn't a patch on the original.)

Envious, envious, envious... Never saw the Clash myself.
