Jook Joint Press
Jook Joint Press is my own publishing imprint. Our debut title was Simmer Down - a book about the early Wailers and sixties' Jamaica that's now on its second pressing. Thank you to everyone who shared in the success of that project and also all those who contributed to our latest Jook Joint release, which is the first of a series called Reggae Chronicles.
Rebel Frequency - Jamaica's Reggae Revival is an anthology of writings about the island's current generation of roots singers and musicians such as Chronixx, Protoje, Damian Marley, Koffee, Kabaka Pyramid and Jah9, who provide extensive insights into their personal journeys, as well as the birth of a movement throughout these 400+ pages.
The majority of the fifty or so articles and interviews included here were first published in specialist magazines based in France and Germany, and many of them appear here in English for the first time.
