(Vocal/instrumental group, 1978–present)
This dreadlocked crew – Dr. Know (guitar), Darryl Jenifer (bass) and Earl Hudson (drums) – ditched jazz-fusion for thrash-punk. They wowed New York’s hip CBGB club, and released the excellent Rock The Light (1983). The volatile H.R. (‘throat’, not vocals) left and rejoined, as they incorporated reggae and funk on the likes of I Against I (1986) and God Of Love (1995). Worshipped by Henry Rollins, they also influenced The Beastie Boys and Red Hot Chili Peppers.
