Welcome to series two of #ToppleUncaged!

Every week, The Canary will be bringing you an innovative podcast for the media landscape; hosted by me, Steve Topple.

In a special episode, I caught up with three members of one of the most influential bands in modern music history: Third World.

Mr Topple x Third World

Third World have been active for over 45 years. The group were part of a movement of reggae artists which led the way in branching out from traditional roots, fusing it with other genres like funky soul. Third World masterfully strikes a balance between searingly conscious music and tracks which have chart-friendly appeal, not least the massive hit Now That We’ve Found Love. Now, the band is back with its superb latest album More Work To Be Done. With the legendary Damian Marley at the production helm, the record is a delicious mix of musical styles. It cements the band’s status as trailblazers in modern music.

So, I caught up with Cat, AJ and Richard from Third World for the #ToppleUncaged podcast. We discussed the untimely passing of founding member Bunny Rugs, More Work To Be Done, the music industry, working with two generations of Marley’s and more.

Enjoy!

We need your help ...

The coronavirus pandemic is changing our world, fast. And we will do all we can to keep bringing you news and analysis throughout. But we are worried about maintaining enough income to pay our staff and minimal overheads.

Now, more than ever, we need a vibrant, independent media that holds the government to account and calls it out when it puts vested economic interests above human lives. We need a media that shows solidarity with the people most affected by the crisis – and one that can help to build a world based on collaboration and compassion.

We have been fighting against an establishment that is trying to shut us down. And like most independent media, we don’t have the deep pockets of investors to call on to bail us out.

Can you help by chipping in a few pounds each month?
