Nucleus Roots have rocked crowds with new music from the Nucleus Studio and previewed tracks from their eagerly awaited studio album, with Ossie Gad (The Natural-ites ‘Picture on the Wall’), at shows across Europe.
Formed in 1995 from the ashes of legendary Manchester punky/reggae outfit Community Charge and with a few line-up shuffles along the way the band developed a cohesive, creative unit.
In recent years they have performed many shows as a full live band. Nucleus Roots Producer and Musical Director P.Lush, resumed duties on the Bass, his brother Gary Morris joined him on guitar, Peter Technical on the bubbling keyboards and Delroy Walker; drummer for Suns of Arqua, Finlaye Quaye and MC Busby, on the classic Nucleus rhythms. This line up provides backing for their regular vocalists; Moses, Simon Dan along with Ossie Gad.
For the ‘Dub Heads’, Lush also plays the set in a sound system format; heavyweight Nucleus Roots tracks, mixed live and accompanied by an MC.
Nucleus Roots have a massive stage presence and produce a contagiously danceable, uplifting Roots sound. This live line up sees another chapter in the band’s colourful history. The vibe harks back to the 80’s ‘digitalised’’ sound which P. Lush loves so much as well as looking forward to a positive musical future.
Feelings run high when Nucleus take the stage so be prepared for a live performance that will take you through the full gamut of emotions.
