Wonder if you know any other ones:

June of 44
Ozric Tentacles
African Head Charge (yeah I know not on the Archives, but who knows them anyway, maybe evaluation needed xD)
Rush (Vital Signs, Spirit Of The Radio,The Enemy Within, Grace Under Pressure Era (well I dont know them well enough))
maudlin of the well... its very hidden and more or less jazzy drumming but its actually reggae... just listen post rock start of heaven and weak. the reggae is actually omnipresent on this album and important for its unique sound too

Tortoise comes close enough on the Post-Rock side, can't really think of any others off the top of my head

IQ experimented with 'white reggae' back in 82 (bit like Rush & the Police) with their single 'Barbell is in'- if you can find the 12'' version of this its a bit more dubby.

Try Tower of Dub by the Orb.. ok, maybe not Prog but in the same league as the Ozrics

More people need to know about Here & Now. Had they formed today and released and album like Fantasy Shift I’m fairly certain they’d had both groupies and money for fresh fruit:

I randomly picked it up because it had Charles Bullen from This Heat, and was super surprised.



Called Lifetones-For A Reason.
A reggae album with electronic, world, and kraut influences as well. Really surprised me. A relaxing, fun album.

Yes, there’s a lot of reggae in prog, and the amount of bands that use it is quite extensive. I cannot, for the life of me, listen to pure reggae, but as an influence in a song, I can appreaciate it’s value.

Absolutely! 100% agree! Saw them on the Fantasy Shift tour about 82 or 83 and loads of time since and when they dub out they really dub out n Keiff da Bass really pumps it out.. 'Theatre' is also a great (mini) lp.. they are still touring and I saw them twice last year.

Me and Sarah Jane by Genesis has a bit of a reggae vibe in it---I like a good groove so I enjoy some raggaeton also called Dance Hall---used to go to a club with my friends from Trinidad called the Raggae Lounge was fun.

Well I guess living in Denmark has it's virtues as well...but man some times I really do wish I resided in a different country.
I think Here & Now perfectly illustrates the secret handshake between punk and reggae that happened in between sets at the local club. The Roxy certainly played a lot of reggae. Methinks it most likely has something to do with weed and getting one's chill on in between hours of complete savageness. Yin and yan and all that good stuff.
The Police share the same heritage albeit with a slightly more straightforward expression.

Never heard of it before which is kind of surprising seeing as I am a sucker for such music.

I listened to Bo Hansson's Watership Down the other day and it has a couple of Reggae/Dub moments.

You mean Bo Hansson's El-Ahrairah?
Just kidding, I've got the Swedish lp.
I think I remember something dub about it as well now that I think of it, but it's been a while.

Van der Graaf Generator's Meurglys III (The Songwriter's Guild): the last 8 minutes must have given UB40 food for thought, or at least something to improve.

There was a big reggae/psych rock cross over in Bristol in the very early 80's which came out of the squat scene mixing with the St Pauls Rasta culture- I was just a teenager and helping a mates band who went on to play Stonehenge various times; they practised in St Pauls and the dub/rasta culture just bled over into the psych space rock that was being made (on London, Birmingham as well as Bristol).. yes, Weed was a part of it but it was also the street culture of the time and the free festival scene.. Here & Now, Ozrics plus loads of other bands (Freebase and Hippy sl*g. who Richard Chadwick from Hawkwind used to drum for) who just did the free festivals and never recorded. Theres a little psych festival happens in the countryside a few miles from me and Here & Now played there last year and they played in Glastonbury (about 40 miles away) 2 weeks ago

Love those psych rock festivals. We've got our own here in Denmark held in Christiania Freetown. It didn't featurw Here & Now though. Truth be told I had no idea they were still playing.

I have been thinking about visiting the UK as a music tourist instead of the usual shop till you drop lunacy with the girlfriend. Been there done that...never happening again.
The problem was always finding the right venue and psych festivals are just such friendly and interesting places. The ones I've attended felt like this wonderful oasis of music and highly imaginative tomfoolery, which coincidentally is one of my prefered hobbies. Duly noted good sir. Thanks a bunch!

Also there is the Glastonbury Psyche fest in Oct and the new Avalon ballroom weekends in Glastonbury and the Fruits de mare Weekend in Cardigan in Wales, all good small scale psych festivals. Ive always wanted to visit Christiana freetown!! Its somewhere ive heard lots about over the years but never got there.. my wife has family in Sweden and we've always talked about driving over via Denmark! Ah one day soon!
