Sir Coxsone Sound


Sir Coxsone AKA Sir Coxsone Outernational was a UK Sound System named after Jamaica's Seymour 'Coxsone' Dodd. Sir Coxsone (AKA Lloyd Coxsone, real name Lloyd Blackford) came to the UK in 1961 from Morant Bay, St Thomas, Jamaica; and had started out with his own soundsystem Lloyd The Matador. This folded because of lack of funds and he went on to work with the Duke Reid Sound. Upon splitting from Duke Reid in 1969 it was a natural choice to name his sound Sir Coxsone, in recognition of the Jamaican rivalry between Studio One and Treasure Isle. Read more on Last.fm
