Ahh, The Rock Steady Crew. What a zany bunch they were, spinning around on their posteriors and so forth. A choice collection of monikers, too: first there was girl singer Baby Love, then you had male members Bucky, Kuriaki, Crazy Legs, Doze and, erm, Ken Swift. That's right - Ken Swift.
I must say it was nice of Ken to take time out from his regular duties as treasurer of the Batley & District Working Men's Club in order to spin a few platters for the Rocksteady ones. But sadly - as happens with all the best bands - things came to a sour end when the rest of the Crew objected to Swift's continued insistence on playing Roy "Chubby" Brown records at their thrice-weekly youth club gatherings. Crazy Legs was positively apoplectic, hurling a volley of abuse at Swift and a can of Top Deck at his precious box of 45s, and what came next can only be described as carnage. Never mind, the music still lives on - which is more than can be said for Ken's Chubby Brown collection.
