Interviews

The son of a preacher, Winston was born in 1957, in the hills of Manchester parish, near Christiana, in Jamaica. His parents were very fond of music and it was only natural for him to sing in church. After his father died in 1971, Winston left his native home and moved to Kingston, where his sister was a teacher. In this new city environment, he became friend with Hugh Mundell, Earl Sixteen and Wayne Wade. Because he was sure of their talent, he went with them to their first auditions and even wrote some of their first songs, like Earl Sixteen’s “Malcolm X”, later taken up by Dennis Brown. From 1975 on, after introducing his friends to famous producers such as Joe Gibbs, Derrick Harriott and Yabby You, Winston recorded several songs for Derrick Harriott, which in 1977 gave birth to his first album: “Pick Hits to Click”. Soon after, in 1980, Winston recorded a second album, “What a Man a Deal With”, for Top Ranking, label of the group Inner Circle (Ian Lewis and Bernard Touter Harvey). He was very close to Jacob Miller, with whom he shared the same energy and enthusiasm, and was even approached to replace his friend in the band after his tragic death… In 1986, he recorded another album with Inner Circle, “Electric Dread”, produced by Keneith Black. The same year, he created his own band, The Black Kush, along with his brother Tony “Makaruffin” McAnuff - now pursuing his career in Japan where he’s been living for 15 years - Anthony Wilson and the bassist Peter Kush.
