Interviews

In 1977 Pablo Gad was introduced to Joe Sinclair by his benefactor Winston Fergus. Sinclair had set up the Klik label following his departure from Trojan Records with a view to releasing authentic Jamaican sounds. Both Fergus and Gad were British-based but were able to maintain an appeal within the roots market. Fergus was the lead singer of the Equators who provided the backing to Gad’s debut recordings. Surfacing on the Caribbean subsidiary, ‘International Dread’ and ‘Kunte Kinte’ enhanced his position as a top vocalist. In 1978 Gad emerged with the classic ‘Blood Suckers’, which surfaced through Clement Bushay’s Burning Sounds empire. From the opening bars this rhythm was destined to last, and was enhanced by Gad’s vocals, with his delivery reminiscent of Fred Locks. Further singles surfaced through Bushay, including ‘Natty Loving’, ‘Trafalgar Square’, ‘Throw Your Dreams’ and ‘Riddle I Dis’. The success of ‘Blood Suckers’ overshadowed his later output, which probably inspired the revival of the rhythm for ‘Hard Time’. The outcome was another smash hit that has become an anthem for revival DJs. 1980 was a prolific year when a successful run of hits encompassed ‘Guns Fever’, ‘Nursery Rhyme’, ‘Oh Jah’ and ‘Fly Away Home’. Pablo Gad continued to record in the 90s, including the self-penned ‘Johnny Reggae’ and the haunting ‘Lash On My Back’, the latter being featured on the Brixton-based Lion Roots compilation.
