Creation Rebel / New Age Steppers

This 1981 collaboration between two acts on Adrian Sherwood’s nascent On-U Sound label captures, like few other records of the day, the dubbed-out pressure of living in Thatcherite London, pounded flat by class warfare and left to fend for oneself. Threat To Creation channels the raw earth blues through pounding rhythms and left-field sonic anachronisms, and reclaims dub reggae as a music defined by the struggle. Sherwood’s touch created invisible links between dub and punk rock, fostered through guest appearances by Ari Up (The Slits) and Keith Levene (Public Image Ltd.), Anthology is pleased to present the first-ever U.S. edition of this crucial work.
