Default Reggae Music

I hear Reggae music all over the place and always seem to get into it in a flash. Yet when it comes to searching for Reggae artists, i dont have a clue to look for, i don't know any names (apart from the obvious Bob Marley ect.).
Could someone give me a low-down on who to search, preferably the new artists, but old will do.

Tom,

Why not start with Bob...you'll find no substitute for the Master. He's got lots of great recordings, but if you go live look for sound board stuff.

You might also check out some streaming radio stations that play nothing but Reggae...that way you can make a list of what you like...

My other suggestions...
Black Uhuru
Steel Pulse
Israel Vibrations

But remember, reggae is only one type of music in this vein...also look up Dub, Ska, and others....perhaps Wikipedia is a good place to start.

Steel Pulse is my favorite.
Also check out Burning Spear, he's pretty cool.

Screw top 100 lists. It's so cliche...

I'd say Burning Spear is my personal fave though.

Burning Spear is great. Check out an album called "Fittest of the fittest"

Lee Perry does some interesting dub stuff, if you're into the more trippy reggae.

And check out poet Linton Kwezi Johnson (LKJ) - he has a great backing band and his dry delivery of his stories makes for great listening.
