In a litte sidenote to an extremely nice interview our friends over at Shimmy Shimmy did with Beth Lesser, we learned that she just released a new book called: »The Legend of Sugar Minott & Youth Promotion« –

a 212-page tome on »Sugar Booga« and his Youth Promotion soundsystem. Lesser is a longtime friend of Minott’s – she even married fellow reggae documentarian David Kingston (with whom she founded the ’80s-era reggae fanzine Live Good Today) at a Youth Promotion dance at Sugar’s house in 1986 – so we can say with absolute certainty that no one was better equipped to tell this crucial story.

Printed by Small Axe, the book is available from now. Essential reading!
