R.I.P. Bunny Rugs, 1948-2014

Third World-“1865 (96ยฐ In The Shade)” (1977)

Third Worldโ€™s first album with Rugs as lead vocalist is often considered their best. The classic title track showcases the group’s knack for politically-charged lyricism with a tale about the Morant Bay Rebellion, an attack on occupying British authorities by Jamaicans in 1865. Arguably, this is the band’s signature tune.
