Rebel Control

We Nah Got No Money (But We Got Love)

Rebel Control evolved from the reggae jams hosted by Andy Baron and Richie Concrete in a disused 
shop in West London back in 2008 / 2009. These sessions attracted an amazing crew of UK based 
reggae musicians including drummer Richie Stevens (Horace Andy/ Dennis Bovell ), percussionist 
Jeff Scantlebury (Eddy Grant / LKJ ), and trombonist Winston Rollins (Aswad/Jamiroquai ) spawning 
the album ‘Jammin At Rebel H.Q’ which was mixed by Mike Pelanconi.

Rebel Control (Andy Baron and Richie Concrete) return from a hiatus with a song originally inspired by the touching displays of community spirit in the wake of the Grenfell Tower disaster.

“With the ongoing COVID situation and the current tensions in America it just feels right to release a track that’s purely about love, positivity, and community into the world right now,” the band said, adding “There will be plenty of time and reason to chant down the Babylon political system in the future, we’re sure of it!”

The UK based reggae band recorded rhythm tracks to a whole new album live with their band in Italy a couple of years ago and have been finishing it up at various studios in London and Brighton. When this track was chosen as a single it had to be mixed by Graham ‘Grammo’ Pilgrim in total isolation in his studio in Rome at the peak of the coronavirus epidemic with Andy and Concrete collaborating on the mix via video calls. ‘We Nah Got No Money (But We Got Love)’ was first aired by David Rodigan on BBC Radio 1Xtra and was played by Toddla T on BBC Radio 1 as well as receiving amazing support from local and international radio and the online reggae community worldwide.
