PAMA INTERNATIONAL on tour - An unrivaled sonic assault of dub - transcending the generations.
From their inception in 2001 Pama Intl have been brewing a unique blend of 60's soul, 70's reggae with a 21st century commentary. As much King Tubby as the southern soul sounds of Stax, all the time remaining distinctly Pama Intl. In 2006 they became the first new band to sign to the legendary Trojan Records in 30 years. The revolving nature of the collective's line up has seen the band line up members from The Specials, Madness, Steel Pulse, Galliano, The Lee Perry Band, Pop Will Eat Itself, Steel Pulse, Style Council, Bentley Rhythm Ace, The Selecter and collaborations with Dennis Alcapone, Dave & Ansel Collins, Billy Bragg, Groove Corp, Mungos Hi Fi, Michie One, Rico Rodriguez, Derrick Morgan and Dawn Penn.
Pama Intl continue their inexorable rise **** Mojo

This is my site The 'Gerald that I built in a fury of excitement when I first moved here sometime in 2004. I'd been a frequent visitor for a while before that but I am technically one of those Down From Londons you get nowadays. The site was a lot more dynamic with a calendar of events and voting for favourite venues and stuff, and I hear it was a useful reference for those who were thinking of moving to the area. Now I've moved out of Folkestone again (though just to Hythe) it doesn't get as much attention as it used to. Ironic really as The town is becoming the exciting place we always thought it was about to become. My name is not Gerald BTW, this comes from a pretend newspaper in an episode of Brasseye or something, the Portsmouth Gerald, and how there is a local newspaper here called the Folkestone Herald. Puns like this are great aren't they? Do get in touch if you have anything to offer, email anythign @ this domain, or try @folkestone or @pauly on the twitter.
