Prior to listening to "Vampayah Ina Showcase Style", we have to admit that we were unfamiliar with No More Babylon. So here's a brief overview of the band's history. The story of this French reggae band actually started in 1978 when the seven members of the band visited the same school and became friends. When growing up they listened to reggae music, to be more precise roots reggae and in particular the music of Bob Marley. Meanwhile they also learned about Rasta philosophy and developed their political awareness. In July 1994 the group of friends decided to form a band called No More Babylon. The line up consisted (and still does) of Kiko (vocals), Lucky (bass), Alex (guitars & backing vocals), Dju (keyboards, melodica, organs), Guy (drums), Mister T (percussion & backing vocals) and Wall (FX sounds). After five years performing live on stage and working hard in the studio they released their debut album "Stand The Pressure" in 1999. In October 2001 No More Babylon started recording tracks for a new album, "Vampayah Ina Showcase Style", which was released in May 2003.
