Repress of the album from 2012. The first release from Rongorongo shines a light on the grey area between punk and reggae. ‘Spiky Dread’ is the result of a few years of hunting by Wrongtom and Ed Zed, who sifted through a plethora of punk and post-punk oddities, picking their favourite approximations of dub and reggae - a side of punk which is largely overlooked, save for tales of the mighty Don Letts playing roots records at The Roxy, or dub sessions round at John Lydon’s gaff in the wake of the Sex Pistols.
