For an equally entertaining flashback to better days, watch this video of Barkey and Wickerman, dressed in schoolboy attire (including backpacks, underground hip-hop style), performing at a dance in New York City. The footage is from the cable access show Ruff Kut, which aired on BCAT and other New York City stations (as well as in Guyana and Miami) in the mid ’90s.
But wait, there’s more…here’s a clip of Barkey at Reggae Sunsplash performing his best-known hit “Go Go Wine” (Not the Vybz Kartel version, but the 1996 original) accompanied by a bevy of lovely dancers… and then suddenly flipping the script with a dancehall version of the Macarena. This was one entertaining dude. Rest in peace, Captain.
