One of the great pioneers in music, Don Letts, will soon be commemorated in a new documentary. Superstonic Sound: The Rebel Dread showcases the West Indian Englishman as a pivotal force behind some of the greatest artists to appear in punk, rock n roll and reggae. The now 54-year old started out in a clothing store called ACME in 1975, which attracted the likes of The Clash, Sex Pistols and Blondie.
Soon thereafter, Letts moved into DJ'ing, making several documentaries himself and forming Big Audio Dynamite with Mick Jones from The Clash in 1984. Now, the camera has been turned on him and we find out more from this elusively cool BBC Radio6 personality.
The movie describes Letts as the "The soundclash that changed British music forever". It will premiere at The Roundhouse in London on June 7. Tickets here.
