The 2004 RFT Music Awards

The Murder City Players were the right band in the right place, as Jamaican music started to become something more and more people wanted to hear. And they were -- and are -- damn good at playing it. They worked up a repertoire of obscure rarities from the island, plus originals that sounded as if they should have been on records for years. For a while there, the Murder City Players were one of the most popular working outfits in the area.

Trends come and go, but the Murder City Players just keep on keeping on. They've added back in a ska influence that had been left behind with the Felons, but other than that, they've stayed true to their reason for being all this time. Who feels it knows it and, as Bob Marley said, "One good thing about music/When it hits, you feel no pain." The Murder City Players don't allow no suffering in their presence. -- Steve Pick
