Gaz's Rockin' Records

 

 

Gaz's Rockin' Records kicked off in October 1985 with the launch of Potato 5's debut 7" and 12" singles, leading to the labels first album release "Floyd Lloyd & Potato 5 meet Laurel Aitken" in February 1987.

 

Gaz had been temporarily managing the group and needed to launch his own dream indie label to promote his club, sound system style modelled on the 1960's Jamaican ska labels like Prince Busters, Coxsones & Duke Reids.

 

With the advent of his own band, The Trojans, Gaz made more singles and another album in 1987 to put his label on the ska world map and continued at a rate of about an album release or more per year. Mainly devoted to the field of ska and its hybrids, Gaz has often branched out with his productions to include world music such as the well acclaimed Baghdaddies debut CD "Last Tango in Babylon" featuring the gypsy flavour of the underground festy scene.
