Christmas TUNE: Smerins Anti-Social Club's ska version of Walking In The Air

Loving this ska version of Walking In The Air on Lenodd's recent xmix - The 12 days Selector

"On 7th December 2010, Nemone asked her BBC 6 Music listeners to vote on a Christmas song for Smerins Anti-Social Club to record. In less than a week the band had arranged, recorded and produced a ska-influenced version of Walking In The Air, Howard Blake's composition made famous by The Snowman animation of 1982."

"Lee Perry… The Upsetter… Scratch Perry… One of the most legendary producers in the history of reggae. If any one person deserves a mix of just their material it’s him. I make no claim as to this being completist, chronological, covering all eras… it’s just some of my favorite Lee Perry moments put together. All classics to me… but if I had to pick one, “Brotherly Love” could be on repeat until the day I die and I’d be okay with that..." Ghostbeard
