Early B - Sunday Dish
The Saturday Morning Skank Spot today features Early B, who earned his nickname (an abbreviation of Early Bird) because of his habit of turning up early for gigs. You might assume that a track called Sunday Dish is about having sex with an attractive woman on the Sabbath, but you’d be wrong. Although culinary references in popular music are usually a euphemism for sexual activity, this seems to be a genuine and heartfelt tribute to Jamaican cuisine.
Sadly, Early B was one of far too many reggae artists who came to a violently premature end. In 1994 he was shot dead in the deceptively posh-sounding Windsor Cricket Club in Dorchester, Massachusetts.
