Bedouin Soundclash at KOKO

by Gig Reporters 2011

WinkBall citizen video reporters Adam and Tom were at KOKO's on Tuesday, 24th May 2011, where Bedouin Soundclash played. The band's current lineup consists of vocalist and guitarist Jay Malinowski, and bassist Eon Sinclair with Sekou Lumumba on drums. Their debut album, Root Fire, released in 2001 also included djembe player Brett Dunlop. The band met while attending Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. They released their second album, Sounding a Mosaic, in 2004, and their single "When the Night Feels My Song" was the breakthrough hit on Canadian radio, charting number 1 on 102.1 The Edge CFNY and gaining airplay on commercial radio stations throughout Canada in the summer of 2005. The band released their follow-up record Street Gospels on August 21, 2007. Bedouin Soundclash takes its name from a dub record by an artist named Badawi, released on ROIR records in 1996. In an early practice, Malinowski exclaimed it sounded like Bedouin Soundclash, and the name was adopted. In 2006 the band began plans for its own imprint 'Pirates Blend' which will release their own side projects and b-sides. The first two projects to be released are set to be a Vernon Maytone solo project, and a Bad Brains mash-up, whose release is yet to be determined.
