Jäh Division: Reggae Joy Division

Back in 2004, a reggae project called Jäh Division emerged with an EP called Dub Will Tear Us Apart. Behind the band–a joke thing, they say–was Brad Truax (now with Interpol) and Barry London.

The group never really went away. Now, fifteen years later, an expanded version of the EP entitled Dub Will Tear Us Apart…Again will be released on January 24. Here’s a taste.

Here’s the tracklisting.

1.Transmission Dub 
2.Heart and Soul Dub
3.Disorder Dub
4.Dub Will Tear Us Apart
5.Isolation Dub
6.Paramount Lobby
7.Sloppy Homework
8.Fu Manchu Dub
9.Champion of the Arena Dub

One thought on “Jäh Division: Reggae Joy Division

  • I could think of other bands who could play in a different genre if you switched their names. How about a bluegrass outfit named Smashing Bumpkins.
