Skylarkin’ Soundsystem Presents:

RAGGASAURUS – full reunion show!
+ DJ Wrongtom (Big Dada)
+ Count Skylarkin (Trojan)

CHRISTMAS EVE AT O2 ACADEMY, OXFORD

***********************************

As much a part of the Cowley Road furniture as The Excelsior Cafe, The Dodgy Deli and those weird wavey benches on Manzil Way – Reggae Christmas at the Zodiac (and latterly the Academy) has been the merriest festive ding-dong in town for well over a decade.

Sadly traditional headliners Mackating can’t make the show this year. But fret not, as we have something extra special for you instead………

RAGGASAURUS had become one of Oxford’s best-loved bands by the time of their untimely demise 18 months ago. Their unique fusion of dub reggae and ethereal Arabic vocals saw them supporting the likes of Jamaican legend Max Romeo and making waves at festivals around the country before they sadly went their separate ways in the spring of 2009. In the spirit of Christmas, the band are getting back together for one night only.

Supporting from the decks for the third year in a row comes from Trojan Records remixer and adopted Oxfordian Count Skylarkin, and DJ Wrongtom – currently earning plaudits for ‘Duppy Writer’, his latest collaboration with London rapper Roots Manuva.

EXTRA SOUNDSYSTEM!
This year we’ve got a bigger rig than ever before, the place is going to sound HEAVY.
