Co-founded in 1978 by Chris Cutler, London-based ReR Megacorp remains a musician-led independent label after almost 40 years. Blithely disregarding market wisdom, it continues to release titles across a wide spectrum of genres.
ReR is home to cult bands This Heat, Henry Cow, Faust, Art Bears, The Necks...
The second in our series of exploration of the panAmerican funk experience, Cult Cargo: Grand Bahama Goombay is a deep overview of Funky Nassau’s redheaded sister city, Freeport, GBI. From 1969-1976 Frank Penn’s GBI studio and label cranked out a dozen LPs and twice as many singles infected with the Miami sounds drifting in over the 100 mile strait. The catalog is a fruity blend of rake and scrape, bush, junkanoo, calypso, reggae, and of course, goombay, with a twist of American soul.
The 76 minute, 16 track CD features Jay Mitchell, Frank
Penn, the Gospel Chandeliers, Dry Bread, Cyril Ferguson,
Sylvia Hall, the Mustangs, Ozzie Hall, and Willpower. The
deluxe 2LP set features a bonus track and gorgeous pullout
sleeve chronicling the island’s LP and 45 history.
