That list certainly takes me back to my youth days!

Sounds i grew up with were:
 
Alpha Int (Harlesden) (Big up Trog, my inspiration)
Java (with Jumbo at the controls) of Kilburn
Sir Jessus - King of the Bush (Big up Ras Digby)
King Tropical Sound with the Velvet Touch (Acton)
Merritone Higher Field Marshall Sound (Big up Grumps)
Crystus - Slough Hardest (Proper heavyweght sound. Big up Hookie)
Loco of Bristol (First sound i see put "four face" on top of "four face" Driven HH S500D's and demolish Southall Community) 
Quaker City the Earthshaker
King Original the Crucial Rocker from Stratford (Studio One specialist)
Jah Youth the Mystical Rocker (Forest Gate)

I remember sitting outside Shackleton Hall in Southall on my bike (1976, 13yrs old, too young to get in!) listening to Jah Youth playing Merritone. Couldn't drag myself away from that dance the tunes were so good but it was worth the beating i recieved when i got in!PinchOuch

Tek, do you (or anyone else) have any idea what Bumbles has turned into? got a couple of theory's, could be what is now Charlie Browns (a gentlemans club) on green lanes, opposite Harringay civic centre,  or club KO, opposite what is now a multipex and used to be wood Green market, ring any bells?

Teks how could you leave Duke Alloy heard him play in the midlands at a center not for from Dudley road I think, in the early days and he was the heaviest thing I have ever heard would leave the majority of the new sounds standing and when I say heavy I mean heavy not loud heavy

Think i heard this sound mentioned before. They had weight, but not much music... heard that from one of the big soundmen of the period.
Most weight i heard was a while back, not since i heard Jah Youth a good few years ago, couldnt stop my eyes watering, my nose tickling, choking when i tried to speak too!!! That was 96/7 at Brixton Rec, also at Hakney Marsh fest, out doors! Never quite the same when i checked them the last few times, but always quality selection.

Just realized some of you are new(ish) comers, so maybe you didn't see that list before!
I borrowed it from Tre4U2Nv post on the following old thread...

unfortunately bro don't think the person who started this thread is aware of what sounds were playing back in the days in country some I have heard of but not all, remember if you was from London you only travel to country when one of the big London sounds was playing. so I think the purpose was for the individual to add to the list thus completing an all round picture of who was a bout in them days.
