Tapper Zukie still asking the questions and stating the facts that few artists
of his calibre would attain to. His classic Dee-Jay style has been copied by
many but bettered by few. Over some of his killer rhythms that he
previously worked up while producing fellow roots groups such as
‘Prince Allah’, ’Knowledge’ and ‘Junior Ross and The Spears’. Alongside
some fresh rhythms, he has taken these as a backbone to some further
questions and biblical reasoning that need answering. Tapper tells it as it
is on this mighty collection of tunes put together under the name ‘X is Wrong’.

This is the first time this set of remarkable tracks have seen a proper release
only previously being available as a down load through Tapper’s web site.

The opening track see’s Tapper reworking an early single of his
‘Judge I Oh Lord’ with a new set of lyrics. ’Israel’ works over Prince Allah’s
‘Funeral’ rhythm and states his reasoning that ‘Who Say Me and God are
No friends’?. The title track of this release ‘X is Wrong’ see’s Mr Zukie
working Knowledge’s ‘Centry’ rhythm, discussing the wrong doings with
our political system. ’Me and God and Dem’ rolls over the Junior Ross
and the Spears ‘Come Down Babylon’, ‘Youth and Youth’ over his version
of the ‘Take 5’ rhythm. His wise worded ‘How Fe Live Long’ uses
Prince Allah’s ‘Slavemaster’ rhythm. ‘Big Batty Girl’ rides Ba-Wisdom’s
‘Running Girl’. Tapper reinstates the facts that a ‘Fool and Their Money’
will soon be parted, a reasoning that has not changed since he last looked
at it way back the late 70’s with the group `Knowledge’.

A great set of songs that finally get the proper release they deserve …

Hope you enjoy the set….
