Various Artists Wild Dub: Dread Meets Punk Rocker Downtown
- Words: Alexis Georgopoulos
- Label: Select Cuts
The second of Select Cuts' collections focusing on the fecund period in the late-'70s when the white sphere of punk and the black world of reggae and dub merged for a brief, desegregated moment, Wild Dub collects rare versions from major players of the era, namely The Slits, PIL, The Ruts, Grace Jones, and The Pop Group. Good as those are, it's the unlikely inclusion of dub-passes by The Pretty Things, Killing Joke, Generation X and 4 Be 2, however inconsitent and guitar-heavy they are, that display a disorientingly bizarre soundclash at work.
