Nucleus Roots have been rocking crowds with preview tracks from their eagerly awaited studio album, ‘On Solid Foundations’ at festival shows across Europe during 2011.
Nucleus Roots will be performing as the live band! Producer and Musical Director P.Lush, has resumed duties on the Bass, his brother Gary Morris joining 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, Megadread, Simon Dan and Ossie Gad (The Ites). The band will be back in the studio also putting the finishing touches to the new Ossie Gad album and recording singles, remixes and exclusives from which will be available online.
Nucleus Roots have previously released 5 classic roots albums, the most recent being ‘Heart of Dub’, 2006. A ‘dubwise’ follow up to the critically acclaimed ‘Heart Of The Matter’ which featured many renowned and respected UK Roots vocalists including; Country Culture, Sammy Clarke, Ossie Gad, Simon Dan and Moses. All of whom have at some time graced the stage live with the band.
The bands four previous releases, ‘Nucleus Roots’ from 2000, ‘Nucleus Roots in Dub’, 2001 , ‘Universal Love’ 2002 and ‘At the Heart of the Matter’ 2004 were very well received and made them a regular feature on all respected sound systems as well as achieving Independent chart positions in France and Belgium. The new album is accompanied by a storming 10 inch, released by popular demand. This features Simon Dan singing ‘Jah Rule’ and ‘Let there be light’ by Moses.
Nucleus Roots formed in 1995 from the ashes of legendary Manchester punky/reggae outfit Community Charge. With a few line up shuffles along the way the band have now developed a cohesive, creative unit. Recent years have seen extended periods touring the continent and building an enthusiastic following with many sell out shows in France, Holland, Belgium and Norway, along with stunning UK festival performances. On the road again recently, this time for a mini-tour of Hungary, they were the first dub sound system to have play in many of the venues.
Recent summers have seen Nucleus Roots raising a storm at clubs and festivals across the Continent, highlights involved supporting Lee Perry in Bergen, Norway, the prestigious Ostroda Reggae festival, Poland and the huge Dour festival in Belgium. In 2008 they played as the backing band for Grammy award winning artist Michael Rose (Black Uhuru) for shows in France.
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 will hark 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.
Nucleus Roots really are working from a Solid Foundation!
