    Default Was the great STEREOMARRS a COUNTRY SOUND???

    I was listening to a rare nicodemus recording played by Massive B. a few weeks ago , and Nico mentioned his birthplace as mandeville and also named Stereomarrs as his sound, was wondering was STEREOMARRS based in the country?

    Haa Haa WWOOOO

    Stereo Mars belongs to Skeng Don... NO SORRY businessman Mr K. Black. Mr Black is from a Content/ York Town which is just outside of May Pen. May Pen is the capitol of the parish of Clarendon.

    Keep up Suge

    Bredren you obviously don't follow news in JA. The sound was set up as a PNP public announcement system by Skeng. All the (regular) artist on the sound were there yes because they were good but first and foremost because they were PNP.

    I'd give you the whole history but... Skeng Don and business man Mr K. Black are the same person but Seaga had to payout a bag of money for calling him (Mr Black of Black Brothers Construction) a gangstar. The first post thing was playing on that.

    For the record neither Cutty nor Cat ever ran with Skeng anywhere until after the sound started. Most ppl never even knew who Skeng was until after PNP got back into power (LARGELY founded by him).

    Interesting. Which year did PNP come back into power, exactly? 88, 89? I take it Steromars disbanded after Manley won the election.

    He-HEEEEE

    No Naps they parked it after their party won, not the other way around.

    How best to get lots of Black ppl in one place?....................
    Keep a BIG dance with nuff BIG artist. Then like what happened in places like Skateland etc. you get the leader of the then opposition Micheal Manley to come in and you stop the dance for like an hour to allow him to speak (sometimes 2 or even 3 depending).

    Then you have ppl like Cutty Ranks with lyrics like:
    From 1962 go to 1981
    Micheal Manley build the Country Seaga F... UP HIM PLAN
    So we ago carry him go a court and ask him nuff question
    If him can't give we the answer start a revolution....

    YOU get the drift. So after PNP got back in power the sound was not really needed again.

    Default Father Sken

    Skeng don was more than a PNP booster. He was and still is a philanthropist and a humanitarian. he provided opportunity for youths in the mandeville communities, he created legal jobs, soccer leagues, community centers plus much much more.

    Default King SturMars Roots Hi-Fi

    Ah Love dem topic ya!

    Demus (R.I.P.) is from Firehouse originally and Fatha Skeng bought the sound for Him to play (as support for PNP) the roots of Sturmars are from the Mighty Socialist Roots Hi-Fi then owned by Tony Welch. I have an old Socialist Roots cassette were dem shout out Willie Hogart. Demus moved to Mandeville sometime in the 80's. He is brother to 'Blacka' Morwell (R.I.P.) producer and along with Bingy Bunny (R.I.P.) and Errol 'Flabba' Holt a Co-Founder of the Morwell Esq. outfit.

    Funny enough I just spoke with Jah Mikey last night, soon hear from dem man deh.

    For the best in Foundation, Lovers, and Roots check
    Sounds of Pressure evry Sunday 6-8PM E.S.T.

    I'll play a rare Socialist Roots cassette this Sunday on my show.

    Soci for life - Yes Suge!

    shit never know all that....quite informative..

    i knew Skeng Don was a true BIGMAN in the biz as Drew said but never thought his reach was so far.

    Cat ALWAYS bigup Skeng DOn as the real bigman anywhere he go, so take that.

    and if it is true bout the whole scenes in JA with Champions etc., it now makes sense why u don't see Cat performing as much in yard.

    Skeng arms long for real!!!!

    I always assumed that its Because Cat would not be Right for a "V" event as him always a Big up the "Fist" That would be asking for trouble.

    Big man Power in JA moves in Circles when your Party in Power "Untouchable" you a de BIG man as Jim Brown and others before have found. God forbid if Daddy Eddie (as t him too old and should of handed over power back in the early 90's IMO) get back in Power the shift in Power of the Big men would change again.

    Remember when 22 Gunman walk across Spanish town road into Rema and walk back after killing 7 did JDF go in search Protection from a High ment all witnesses knew - See and Blind

    SUPER THANKS to LYRICAL for the info........

    That was VERY INFORMATIVE!!!...my apologies for my ignorance of the political affairs of jamaica, i am a yankee youth born of Crucian (St. Croix) and Nevis heritage...

    So what i gathered thus far, and PLEASE CORRECT ME IF I'M WRONG...

    * Skeng Don's (K. black) STEREOMARRS sound was first and foremost a political vehicle using a soundsystem to voice it's message, which leads me to question WHAT ABOUT TENOR SAW????? was he socialist as well, rumors say he was a drug mule and that is what led to his death.

    * Champions In Action which is put on by the Presidential Click is a JLP backed operation , which is one of the reasons SUPERCAT would not appear.......but i recall AND I HAVE IT ON VIDEO, burro banton another STEROMARRS vet performing at CHAMPIONS IN ACTION that was the year Scare Dem crew performed as well as Sean Paul and Mr. Vegas and Cham...forgot the year.

    Man keep this post ablaze....i'm sure getting educated here

    Thumbs up No Bredrin

    Do not apologise for not being J'can Suge I should be apologising to you. Sometimes because its common knowledge I think that everyone will know.

    As to Cat working with Shower, V, Labourite etc. he has no problem with that as he and Josie are the best of friends. At one stage he even tried to help Josie to restart his career. Cat made the famous statement which ALL badman have come to live by which was "mi naaw cross no baaada (border)". This meant physically and mentally he would not be entering into the other sides territory. Also because Dudus was only a youth when Cat was around he doen't know hence does not (let me work this properly) trust Dudus as he has never had cause to see him in action. Trust me out of respect if Jim Brown or the original promoter Jah T (Dudus brother) was around Cat would have probably worked on Champion already.

    And as Drew said Skeng a de REAL BIG MAN a JA. Seaga was upset because Mr Black and Mr Williams (another BIG man) got over JA$50billion in construction contracts. It whatever currency you work that out in it adds up to some serious money (at that pint the US$ was 45 to JA$1).

    As to him being a Philanthropist and Humanitarian big up nymta007 "De man woulda gi weh de shirt offa him own back".

    Default SturMars - Don Man Sound!

    Lyrical, Menke, Sam and everyone Peepin this!

    Large Up! and great Topic.

    Sam - is weh yuh get the three Sturmars video from? U.S. or Canada? Me have all three and there is talk of more. Have you heard of anymore?Who would have been the one to have them?
    Trust me, at least 2 members of SturMars that I speak to don't have them.

    There is a video with about 10 dancehall videos from the 80's that I believe was made by Keeling Beckford. In between the videos they play clip from a nice Sturmars dance with Danny Dread, Ricky Tuffy, Icho Candy, Little Harry and the one and only Mr. Fabulous 'Demus'.

    Default Some back ground history

    When Stereo Mars originally started a bredda call 'Popsy' used to play the sound, but ppl carry news that he was regular parring with Showa and never stop till he got push out. He used to play still as Stereo 2 with some unknown but it never really took off.

    The sound was originally managed by a bredrin call 'ID', but just like Popsy news "carry go bring come", push him out as well. Where he lives in May Pen is a Labour strong hold.

    So called 'Trevor Don' used to over see the whole operation but had to get a free trip to Miami for some disipline after Skeng found out that he was selling the stuff Skeng was giving him to give away. He was advised against touching any of Skeng's business after that.

    One of the first singers on Stereo Mars was 'Junior Black'. He used to sound like Leroy Smart. He got pushed out as well and went with Popsy to Stereo 2. Whatever happen to him????...

    .....Anyone????

    Yea I know about the book, some of the things in it are false and changed to make some people look different, most a di man dem neva want them name call up in anything, yuh can never expect the full truth when only one side of something is being heard...the book is biased, and at the end there is atually a section revealing the present location and physical details of most a di man dem...

    I never really had a problem with him or his son until I heard about the book, and believe mi nuff man have him up...everybody seems to be a idiot except Mr Blake, so many hundred pages of informing is no good and will have terrible reprocussions...

    lyrical:

    Trevor was a don before skeng.Them kill him when he was drunk which was pretty much all the time!!!
    Not sure but I heard them shoot him up and left him on top of his car...or something like that

    Funny you mention junior black.....I have a stur mars cassette before they sent for nico and cat ,cutty burro or any of them!!!!

    Junior black and the youth promotion crew was on it......
    sugar minott and the whole crew!!!!
    No dj's what so ever ,just bare singers....its like early 84 or some thing!!!???!!!


    sankofa...theres alot more of those video.....Don't mention that keeling to me...
    I had a couple of dealings with him and he is not reliable nor trust worthy!!!
    We have a mutual friend inna manhattan,I linked up with him ,and I new he was one of the first video man in the dancehall business.anyway I have alot of videos he wants..some he videoed and damanged or lost.In return hook me up with some videos that he has what I want for my collection!!
    he end up not giving me a copy of anything claiming I might sell them or something...I'm a collector,I aint selling no videos....worse part about it,these videos he's scared I sell he use to sell...theres copies out there..if someone wants to sell it he can't do nothing about it!!!
    what I really don't like about him is he videos about 6 hours of a dance then edits it to 60 minutes....straight ripp-off!!!

    The bigger artists on the sound would often complain that Cutty used to hog the mic and they wouldn't always let him hold it for long periods. However, in the early 90's he proved to everyone that he truly had potential by becoming DJ of the year and a commercial success for a short period.

    Wayne Palmer was also a great singer on Stur Mars. However, he never got the push that he deserved because he sounded exactly like his brother who was Micheal Palmer.

    Ricky Tuffy was known as a "3 second Banton". His family was well known rich business people in Clarendon who owned a race horse. It was because of his family that he got a chance to work for Stereo Mars. However, he was not a very talented artist who could not hold the mic for long periods. Currently Ricky Tuffy is a crackhead in Clarendon.

    Sammy Don??? I don't what happend to that artist.

    Although, Cosmic Force was actually a much better sound from Clarendon, the name "Stur Mars" was bigger. As a result, Stur Mars had a better reputation.

    Listen to the Stur Mars cassettes that were recorded in the later segments of the dance when Cat and Demus had left the dance. You will hear the smaller artists at their best because that was
    when they had the mic to themselves.

    Remember that Mars was the first planet in our solar system that referred to big things that was out of this world. Mars was also Ares who was the god of war in mythology. Maybe this is why the term "Mars" is used in the sound's title.

    Nuff respect to all the Stur Mars collectors. There's actually alot of cassettes because each dance had different cassette men who recored different versions. Some versions from the sound system and others from the portable tape decks.

    Naaw man

    Bredrin Skeng was giving Trevor barrels up on barrels of clothes, clarks etc to issue out to sufferers and instead Trevor issue them out he had ppl selling the stuff in market. Thats TOOOOOO petty, HOW MI FI RATE A MAN LIKE THAT AS DON?????

    As to Trevor bigging up Skeng... be careful friend, Trevor might have had money before Skeng but as to him being a REAL DON???

    Remember when Seaga(JLP) called a snap election on Manley(PNP). PNP had no funds for the campaigne so in the middle of an election rally live on telly a man(I think it was Willy Hagart) stepped on stage with a sports bag full US$200,000 and said to Micheal Manley "Skeng send dis fi yu"? That was the diffining moment which transformed 'The General Skeng'(as he was known then) into 'Skeng Don'(as he is known now).

    As to the Cosmic Force thing their problem was the only REAL main artist they had was Bunny General, all the other artist were hired from other sounds thats what stop them getting ratings as much.

    Another thing and for the record Cosmic Force and Stereo Mars clashed and Cosmic was winning for the first couple of hours. Danny Dread was late but the minute Danny Dread stepped in the dance the whole thing flipped, Cosmic ended up being beaten silly. Bunny General still cusses about that, he was so relishing the thought of claiming that scalp.

    For those who don't know one of the ppl behind Cosmic Force is still running the business red at the moment. With a little ting called NITE TRAXX mobile disco. It's a big truck (kind like F150) with a sound system in it. They drive it into the middle of dances and hook up turn tables to it then WALLA ready fi de bashment. They have played with Stone Love beaten Body Guard and nuff real sounds already. For anyone visiting yard it a MUST SEE. They are always easy to find case anywhere they play the put up a UFO style light which can be seen for like 20-30 miles away.

    If anyone has the CD or cassette of Car Blast (plus) 2003, Old Harbour, July 6, 03(Alliance, Sizzla, etc). The sound playing after they artist performed was actually the truck Nite Traxx.

    As to Ricky Tuff , could believe when I saw him last. Worst after him used to cuss Little Joe(DJ, his brother) for the same thing.

    Seems like a PNP anthem to me but i don't know who's singing it, that's why i'm asking.
    In the song the continuously repeat the pnp slogan "put them under manners heavy heavy manners" and then the whole party programme is listed "jook them with the cuban school.." and so forth.

    He Heeee

    I never responded to the song thing cause I didn't know who sang it but what I do know is that is was made specifically for the PNP election campaigne (I think it was 1976).

    If you listen to the song it is actually also pokin, fun a Seaga with statements like "My Leader born, my mother born ya and my father born ya". Then it names out all the things Manley did in power "juk dem wid XX program", then he leads on to the chorus talking about the JLP "Wi have dem unda manners, heavy... heavy, heavy manners".

    Need to make a call for the name.

    P.S. Just remember the brigde "No bastard no de again, no bastard no de again/ everyone lawful" (Raaaaa).

    Sorry, I friend from Clarendon once told me that they were brothers. However, I guess it was another false rumor. Too many of those things in the reggae business..

    Anyone know what happend to the singer named Sammy Don?
    I heard him once on a Stur Mars cassette.
