Biografia

Auguably the finest rocksteady group to come out of Jamaica, The Melodians were formed in the Greenwich Town area of Kingston in 1965 by Tony Brevett (brother of Skatalites bassist Lloyd Brevett), Brent Dowe and Trevor McNaughton. Close friend, Renford Cogle, assisted with writing and arranging material. In 1966 The Melodians made their recording debut with Clement “Coxsone” Dodd’s Studio One label with the releases “Lay It On” “Meet Me”, “I Should Have Made It Up” and “Let’s Join Hands (Together). ” From 1967 to 1968 they had a number of hits on Duke Reid’s Treasure Isle label, including “You Have Caught Me”, “Expo 67”, “I’ll Get Along Without You”, and “You Don’t Need Me.” After recording “Swing and Dine” for producer Sonia Pottinger, they recorded their biggest hit, “Rivers of Babylon” for Leslie Kong. This song became an anthem of the Rastafarian movement, and was featured on the soundtrack for the movie, The Harder They Come. After Kong’s death in 1971, they recorded for Lee Perry and Byron Lee’s Dynamic Studios. In 1973, Brent Dowe left the group for a solo career. The group reformed briefly a few years later and again in the early 1980s.
