Who’s Eek-A-Mouse ?
Born in Kingston, Jamaica, Eek-A-Mouse began his music career when he was in college, releasing two roots reggae singles under his own name, which were produced by his mathematics tutor. He adopted the stage name “Eek-A-Mouse” in 1979, taking the name of a racehorse he always bet on. By the end of 1980, he had linked up with producer Henry “Junjo” Lawes, with whom he had big hits in 1981 with the likes of “Virgin Girl” and a recut “Wa-Do-Dem”. In 1981, he was the star of the Reggae Sunsplash Festival, cheering audiences still mourning over the death of reggae icon Bob Marley. The same year he released his second album, Wa Do Dem. His 1988 album Eek-A-Nomics saw him begin to establish himself with an international audience. He also has a performance in the 1991 gangster movie New Jack City playing a drug-dealing Rastafarian named Fat Smitty. Eek-A-Mouse is a regular at Sunsplash and often teams up with reggae duo Michigan & Smiley.
Who’s King Kong ?
Born in Kingston, Thomas first recorded as a deejay at Tuff Gong studios in 1982, initially working under the name Junior Kong, named after his father. His debut single was “Pink Eye”. The early King Kong recordings for Tubby were over early digital rhythms, and included songs such as “AIDS” and “Babylon”, and established him as a popular artist. During 1986 and 1987, Kong recorded for several of Jamaica’s top producers, including Prince Jammy, with whom he enjoyed his biggest hits with “Trouble Again” and “Legal We Legal”, While many of his songs were typical in content of the era, several of his songs had political and cultural themes. He released several albums during this period before relocating first to New York, and then to Canada in the late 1980s, where he released material occasionally on his Conscious Music label. In 1989 he relocated to England and recorded with Mafia & Fluxy and Gussie P in the early 1990s. He began recording more regularly again in the 2000s.
