Ring the alarm…

Fu-Schnickens

Fu-Schnickens

I just came across this classic early 90’s hip hop cover of Tenor Saw’s best-known reggae hit ‘Ring the alarm’ by Fu-Schnickens as I was sorting through some old tunes.  I’m sure the neighbours enjoyed the bass during its first spin for about 8 years!

Tenor Saw (whose real name was Clive!) died tragically young at 22 when hit by a speeding car.  Check out another track of his –  ‘Golden Hen’ – as well, another great bit of 80’s digital reggae.

Fu-Schnickens never really had the success they deserved and split after their second album.  They had some great names though –  Chip Fu, Moc Fu, and Poc Fu.  Which coincidentally are three of my favourite dishes from the local Shanghai Kitchen…
