The PlatesThe Plates is a Denver based Punk/Reggae band featuring original Samples drummer Jeep Macnichol , original Heavyweight Dub Champion frontman Stero Lion, and Kingston Jamaica bassist Ian Anderson. You may remember our feature of the single “Boom Boom Rockers” from their first release, as well as previous features from Jeep’s project, Mr. Anonymous. The newest single “Riot Squad” is available as a free download with a alternative version over at their website below along with videos and links to their previous releases.

“Earth Moon Version” is their 2nd album and showcases rawness, experimentalism, and lo-fi sensibilty in delivering a Punkish Reggae psychedelic attitude. Recorded at The Blasting Room studio(owned by Bill Stevenson from Black Flag and The Descendants), this album was recorded in a month and captures a fire and unpolished tone inspired by Who drummer Keith Moon. The lyrics offer social and political commentary with grooves riding a high energy mix of bashing and melody. If you like the English Beat or first couple Police albums along with 70’s style Jamaican dancehall artists like Iroy and Dillinger, you will fully enjoy the vibe of “Earth Moon Version”
