Bristol sound system culture  flyer

The Boxes! The Boxes!

Let’s Go (Yorkshire) is proud to present Sound System Culture: Bristol, a new photographic exhibition celebrating the history of reggae sound systems in Bristol from the 1950s to now. Expect to visit The Bamboo Club, The Dugout, St Paul’s Festival…. and get a taste of the culture that provided the bass driven foundation of Portishead, Smith & Mighty, Appleblim, Shackleton, Pinch and, of course,  Massive Attack.

Sound System Culture: Bristol is a part of national tour documenting the history of the sound systems that provided the musical edutainment for the Afro Caribbean communities of Bristol, Birmingham and London. It’s curated by Al “Fingers” Newman – think Clarks in Jamaica, Greensleeves The First 100 Covers – and Mandeep Samra who developed this tour following the positive response to her 2013 project Sound System Culture: Huddersfield.
