El Topo Goes Kinky: Smooth Lee + Radio El Topo

Smooth Lee:
The union of punk and reggae originated at the end of the 70s, when both sides joined forces under the banner of “Rock against racism” to spread their “Rebel music” far and wide.
It is in this tradition, that Belgian band Smooth Lee bring their energising mix of punk, reggae and ska, seasoned with influences from soul and dub. Inspired by legendary acts such as The Clash, The Ruts and The Specials, they perform their songs with an honesty and enthusiasm that ‘s outright contagious. Despite this deeply rooted inspiration, Smooth Lee manages to present a very fresh and contemporary sound.

Smooth Lee’s new album “The Holdup” was recorded straight to analogue tape by guitarist/producer Steve Michielsen aka Kingston Echo at his own Hoboken Hi-Fi studio. The 10 songs on the album show the vast scope of sounds the band successfully present you with: Now bordering on harcore punk, while submerging the listener moments later in deep reggae grooves, drenched in dubby delays and reverb splashes.

Throughout the years, Smooth Lee shared the stage with numerous legends, both in Belgium as internationally. Some of the highlights were shows with The Specials, Aggrolites, Ska-P, Suicide Machines, Liberator etc. Several tours with Mexican ska/punk/cumbia veterans Panteon Rococo also contributed to the great live reputations the boys now enjoy.

One thing is for certain: It’s nearly impossible to stand still when this energetic lot hit the stage!The union of punk and reggae originated at the end of the 70s, when both sides joined forces under the banner of “Rock against racism” to spread their “Rebel music” far and wide.
