Music worth leaving the house to hear this week

Fully Fullwood, The Posse
Lincoln Theatre
Friday Nov. 21, 9 p.m.

Although slightly overshadowed by Bob Marley's superstar career, fellow Wailer Peter Tosh carved his own legend into the reggae history books. After The Wailers disbanded in 1973, Tosh went on to sign with Columbia Records and rallied crowds, in somewhat of a missionary-style with songs calling for equal rights, justice and the legalizing of marijuana. His Legalize It album released in 1976, caused a controversy in Jamaica where the title song was banned from the airwaves. Beaten to almost an inch of his life by police authorities, he continued to perform under the threat of bomb scares and assaults and once joined the Rolling Stones on a tour of North America in 1978. Known as a natural mystic among friends, he constantly had premonitions of his own death and was struck down by three gunmen at his home in Jamaica on September 11, 1987.

During the fifteen years Tosh performed solo, his band 'Word, Sound and Power' went through numerous changes in personnel with Sly and Robbie perhaps best remembered earlier on. Later, it was the recruitment of Soul Syndicate members George "Fully" Fullwood, Carlton 'Santa' Davis and Tony Chin that gave Tosh's band it's live, "mighty & thunder-rebel" tag line.

Fully's re-emergence with his old Soul Syndicate band members has sparked a tour to commemorate Peter Tosh's music. To perfect the stage show, Fullwood has enlisted the vocal talents of Andre McIntyre, a former Wailer himself during the early 1990's, legendary drummer Basil "Benbow" Creary as well as Brazillian percussionist, Claudio Peppe; guitarist, Tony Chin; keyboardist, Jawge Hughes and former Soul Syndicate vocalist, Donovan Carless.

Carless resides here in Raleigh and has entertained reggae lovers in the Triangle on numerous occasions with his band, The Posse. As part of a homecoming for Donovan, The Posse will open the show at the Lincoln Theatre, alongside M.C. Supa B and JamRock singer, Carl "Sta-Yute" Baxter.

Tickets are $12 in advance/ $15 on the night. All students are $10 with valid student I.D. Call 821-4111 or visit
