Pitchfork 500 - Dec. 7th - Althea & Donna

I'm the only guy in the Indie Laundry-village who has a soft spot for sweet laidback reggae-rhytms. Or maybe dare to be honest about it?

While the other guys today are enjoying themselves in such different parts of the world as Paris and in the magnificent and colorful village of Stjær, Jutland I get to decide. So i thought: Let's play with girls with really rad hair-do's.

This sundays treat is a one hit wonder from jamaican reggae singing duo Althea & Donna. The song is 'Uptown Top Ranking' and has a sweet and simple riddim pumping.
30 years ago Althea & Donna reached number one in UK with 'Uptown Top Ranking' and disappeared forever. And has never been seen since. No where. Even their hair might be lost.

It's a cute little tuney-thingy. View a take from a BBC show below...

See mi in mi Benz and ting
Drivin' through Constant Spring...
