The biography of King Tubby that wowed reggae/dub fans around the world has finally been translated!

The man who invented dub, revolutionised the sound system and was murdered in his home in 1989 - a seminal figure in the evolution of popular music - now reveals his mysterious life.
There are also many previously unpublished photos provided by the family.
A must have for all reggae/dub fans!

The story of the inventor of dub begins in Kingston's Waterhouse district. King Tubby never left the country and spent his entire life in Waterhouse. Although he created one of the most important revolutions in popular music, there are very few interviews with Tubby left. It is also doubtful whether the records with "King Tubby" on them that are all over the place were actually made by him. It is also still unknown who murdered him.
A French reggae journalist travels to Jamaica multiple times to uncover the mysterious life of the King of Dub, and from various testimonies he uncovers Tubby's achievements (sound system, dub, electronics).
This definitive book is packed with valuable information, including a detailed biography and story of King Tubby, rare photographs and flyers.
