Here is an interview with Cedric Myton of The Congos from the November 1981 issue of Zig Zag. Very interesting time in their career having signed with the Go Feet label owned by The English Beat. They release the outstanding and under-rated “Face The Music,” the only album they will release on the label. Noteworthy interview shared with you exclusively at MIDNIGHT RAVER…
Also included is the 12″ single they released on Go Feet titled “Can’t Take It Away,” which is in my opinion, one of the strongest singles in their storied career. What a triumphant tune! Bring me positive vibes every time! Video and high-fidelity vinyl rip by yours truly.

Dear Midnight Raver
I just wanted to say thank you for all the effort and work that you put into your powerful message. I especially liked the recent one about Gregory Isaacs. When I heard that Roots Radics was touring, I tried to find their website to get the touring dates and locations. Unfortunately, I found out too late that they just played at a Seattle venue last month. And since I live in Vancouer, B.C., I was only a couple of hours away from hearing one of my favorite bands. To say I was disappointed would be an understatement. Could you please let me know how I can find out information about bands like Roots Radics. It seems a lot of these bands have no official websites or only have fan websites, or MySpace pages that are several years old. I definitely don’t want to miss legendary bands like Roots Radics again.
Thank you very much.
P.S. Reggae has had a profound impact on my life. I had the pleasure of seeing legendary performers like Burning Spear, Peter Tosh (Mama Africa) in concert. I sponsored a young girl at the S.O.S. children’s village in Kingston, Jamaica for over two years because I wanted to give back to the people of Jamaica and to Kingston, the city that gave the world Reggae. I ran the Reggae Marathon in Negril in 2011 and came in top ten in my age group. I am travelling to Jamaica again this year to attend the sumfest. For me, a day without Reggae is a day without sunshine.
