R.I.P. Desmond Dekker

Desmond Adolphus Dacres (Desmond Dekker) died yesterday.

I've loved his sweet voice for years. Even when I was in my rawest punk phase or my thuggiest hardcore or my most booombastic drop-d post-hardcore whatever phase (all of which existed alongside industrial/dance/Jungle, somehow).. I always had time for a swivel and drop to the late-60s sounds of Jamaica.

According to the Gleaner, he was booked through November. Amazing!
