Lloyd Coxsone, founder of Sir Coxsone Outernational, began his career in the sixties, soon after arriving from Jamaica. He was one of the first soundmen to play at West End clubs like Tiles and the Roaring Twenties, where a generation of British pop stars like the Beatles, Rolling Stones and Elton John first heard the music of Jamaica. Coxsone then dominated the seventies, when Bob Marley and Dennis Brown were among his closest allies, as heard on unforgettable dub-plates from that era.

Rumshack Steve aka Shaun Galbraith runs Govanhill’s premier Caribbean style dancehall and the gem of Pollokshaws Road. Shaun throws regular parties inviting guests to delve into their Jamaican collections, or showcasing artists influenced by the Jamaican sound.
