1. Gappy Ranks on Later with Jools…

    This Friday at 10pm, Gappy Ranks will be holding the torch for dancehall on one of the country’s highest musical platforms. Performing alongside Brian Wilson (who may be remembered from, erm, the motherfuckin’ Beach Boys) and an upcoming indie outfit from Sheffield called Arctic Monkeys, Gappy will take to the world-famous Later With Jools Holland circular arena to perform one or maybe (hopefully) two tracks on what is regarded as a national institution. The show is on BBC2 at 10pm, Friday 13th May, with the extended version shown at 11.20pm on the same night. It’s been an eventful year for Mr Ranks, who was caught up in the Japan disaster back in March, but has since taken to the stage supporting dancehall-monsters Assasin and Mr Vegas as well as recording new material.

    This is a great moment for Gappy and UK dancehall. Here’s a little taster from his performance on French TV earlier this year, performing Stinkin Rich and Long Time
