After a 7 year hiatus Pama International are back with a brand new line-up and album – ‘Love & Austerity’, which is out in Jan’17 on Cherry Red Records (on CD & digital). It boasts 8 songs and everyone of them is a single!

We would love to issue all 8 songs (and of course the album) on vinyl so are launching this pledge campaign to facilitate just that. We would love to issue the 8 singles as a 7” collectors boxset (only 100 numbered copies manufactured) and a further 150 numbered 7”s of each title available individually. Also included in the campaign’s perks is the LP on 180gsm heavyweight vinyl, super rare test presses/white label’s and signed copies of the CD. The CD and the LP come with a free download of 4 extended dubs.

Taking in thunderous dubs, soul ballads, a Jackie Mittoo/Studio One inspired organ instrumental, rocksteady and reggae, the album stars the beautiful lead vocal harmonies of Jewels Vass and Anna Uhuru and is produced by Pama Intl songwriter/founder Sean Flowerdew and guitarist Lenny Bignell. The album also features drummer extraordinaire Bullit (previously worked with The Wailing Souls, Lee Perry, Max Romeo) and Gary Alesbrook (Kasabian).

Our first single, a reworking of Martha Reeve & The Vandella’s soul classic Heatwave is out digitally on the 14th October’16, followed in quick succession by the other 7 singles, on Cherry Red Records (digitally) and our own Happy People label on vinyl via this Pledge campaign.

In our first 10 years we recorded 9 albums, 3 BBCRadio 1 Maida Vale sessions, won the Rebel playlist on BBC6, and became the first new act to sign to Trojan Records in 30 years. We got to work with members of The Specials, Madness, Steel Pulse, Style Council, Galliano, Kasabian, Billy Bragg, Mad Professor, Michie One, Wrongtom and Jamaican legends; Derrick Morgan, Dave & Ansel Collins, Dawn Penn, Dennis Alcapone and Rico Rodriguez. And gig with Madness, The Specials, Toots & The Maytals, Jimmy Cliff, Prince Buster, Mick Jones (The Clash), Third World, Lee Perry, Max Romeo, Janet Kay and Caroll Thompson to name a few.

Not content to keep his sound to the music world alone Pama Intl’s writer Sean Flowerdew work has been featured on nine British and Hollywood film soundtracks and television. The most successful being ‘Lock, Stock & Two Smoking Barrels’ and US blockbuster ‘Fool’s Gold’.

The all-new Pama International entered the live arena earlier this year as the house band for Trojan Record official club night, with every show selling up. Upcoming gigs include shows with Misty In Roots, Dennis Bovell, King Prawn, Zion Train, The Dead 60s and more for Trojan Records!
