CanaryPod: Topple Uncaged meets… Third World
THIS PODCAST CONTAINS LANGUAGE AND CONTENT SOME PEOPLE MAY FIND OFFENSIVE. THE VIEWS EXPRESSED IN THIS EPISODE ARE THE OPINIONS OF THE HOST AND GUESTS.
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.

We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support
The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.
The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.
So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
