Sorry to hear that Pama are calling ita day, I've still got the CDs Sean sent me to review when I was running my own zine. Best show I ever saw em do was at the Bierkeller in Bristol with The Slackers, they had the crowd eating out of their hands.

Wow, thanks for the kind words everyone.

@Paul, as Skacid says just the one show for The Loafers... The London Intl Ska Festival (on the fri 22 april, with the original Hotknive doing a one off to, & Dave & Ansell Collins headlining). Don't think I could handle doing anymore gigs Laughing It's funny listening back to the Loafers stuff. We were all kids.

Nas & Trev from The Loafers are always busy with their bands Big Boss Man and The Bongolian. Finny's doing some music with his brothers band, who were called Painterman, but not sure if they still are.

I'm doing a lot of writing for other people and hope to have some of my own new material launched early summer. Exciting times!


Thanks again everyone and have a great Christmas.
Here's to a peaceful 2011.

Only caught Pama a couple of times Sean but enjoyed what I saw... good that is appears from an outsiders perspective that it's a mutually agreed thing between the band. Hope you're all successful in, and enjoy, your your next projects.

Cheers Arch... well you know Pama Intl has always been a collective vibe driven by me. Everyone involved does other things which they'll all keep on doing. Time for a change for me.

Sorting out the LSF isn't quiet what anyone would call a rest Sean, but it sure is a new project & challenge

i think Pama played a key role in repopularising uk ska and reggae and getting it out to new generations, i only came to them late but they were a great band. all the best for your future sean
