En plein tsunami punk, l’Angleterre de la fin des années 70 connaît un salutaire revival ska mené par Madness et surtout les Specials. Ce gang multiracial de Coventry, piloté par Jerry Dammers, remet au goût du jour les rythmes syncopés du ska jamaïcain et de son dérivé, le rocksteady. Pork pie hats, costards noirs cintrés, motifs à damiers, la tenue de rigueur est obligatoire pour mieux apprécier, en cœur de la grise Angleterre thatchérienne, leurs singles A Message to You Rudy (une reprise de Dandy Livingstone), Too Much Too Young ou Gangsters, comme leurs deux uniques albums, Specials (1979) et More Specials (1980). Sous le nom de Special AKA, ils publieront en 1984 le tout aussi essentiel In the Studio With, porté au sommet des charts par le tubesque (Free) Nelson Mandela… En 2019, les Specials se reforment. Mais certains tiquent un peu puisque ni Dammers, auteur de leurs plus grandes chansons, ni le chanteur Neville Staple ne sont pas de la partie. Pourtant, Terry Hall, Lynval Golding et Horace Panter réussissent leur coup, leur ska croisant de la soul voire du disco vintage sur l’album Encore.


Surtout, ces Specials du troisième millénaire n’oublient pas de commenter le climat social et politique comme à leurs débuts. Du politique et du social, il y en a justement dans le bien nommé Protest Songs 1924 – 2012, belle collection de reprises venues du blues, du rock, du folk, de la soul et du reggae. Des chansons engagées, principalement made in USA, signées Leonard Cohen, Talking Heads, les Staples Singers, Big Bill Broonzy, Bob Marley, Chip Taylor, Malvina Reynolds et même Frank Zappa. Le trio opte ici pour un mood essentiellement acoustique, dans une tradition folk’n’soul qui met surtout en valeur les textes et le chant. Et même si un brin de folie aurait pu rendre l’affaire musicalement plus explosive, ces protest songs conservent toute leur force historique. © Marc Zisman/Qobuz

Trojan : 50 ans à digger le reggae

Une fois passé l’arbre Bob Marley, de nombreux amateurs de reggae ont découvert la profondeur et la diversité de la forêt musicale jamaïcaine à travers les compilations de Trojan Records, devenues pour certains de véritables madeleines de Proust. A l’occasion de ses 50 ans, Qobuz revient sur la trajectoire fluctuante d’un label qui fait partie des références de la réédition reggae, en compagnie de Laurence Cane-Honeysett, curateur de la maison de disques et auteur du livre “The Story of Trojan Records”.

10 figures méconnues du reggae jamaïcain

Derrière les succès internationaux de Bob Marley, Jimmy Cliff ou Shaggy à une autre époque, la scène locale jamaïcaine est toujours restée foisonnante, se renouvelant sans cesse et chassant une star par une autre. Qobuz vous fait découvrir 10 héros locaux du reggae jamaïcain qui sont passés trop souvent sous le radar du grand public.
