about

Blue is the color of my blues.
A love song or a political lament?

Recorded when The Slackers were (once again) playing a 3-day engagement in Chicago, this tune began life as a spooky-dusty folk-rock head-nodder. Given the Jamaican treatment, the track struts confidently into the pantheon of politically charged reggae tunes.

Video -> bit.ly/blueisthecolor

MC ZULU takes the sentiment and invokes a modern day groundation to cast the power of positive music against all inequity workers and corrupt officials. Tuff version!

And of course The Drastics own dub master King Tony takes the tune into outerspace on the heavy heavy 'Dub Is The Color' version!
