Lozells Reggae In operation: 1975-78


I was just talking with my old pal Martin breen from berners st. and we where reminicining about the black wax shop in lozells, we laughed, 2 sons of Irish immigrants bopping over the phone to "war on a Babylon". Comment: Paul Friel

Black Wax was a Black music shop but i and some other white boys and girls used it regular in the 70s. It was on the Lozells Road by Gower Street School. I can recal some of the record labels ISLAND , CACTUS and TROJAN what great music. It was music to dance to a young lady with. Still have one or two of my records.
Thank you BLACK WAX. Comment: Patrick Moran

A Reggae label, from Handsworth, Birmingham, run by Keith Thornton. Black Wax was a record shop as well as a label.
