The best songs of Radioactive Scotland

The Wailers come to Glasgow


There was a Natural Mystic blowing through the Glasgow air last Monday when the Wailers came to town to perform the ‘Legend’ at the O2 ABC. The diverse crowd waited patiently with the anticipation of feeling the kindred spirit of Bob Marley and they were not to be disappointed with our HNC Radio Broadcasting and NC Film and photography students there to capture the moment.

With an almost impossible job to lead vocals, Dwayne “Danglin” Anglin didn’t dampen the crowd with his outstanding execution of the likes of ‘No Woman, No Cry’, ‘I Shot The Sherriff’ and ‘Could You Be Loved’. Afterwards he told Radioactive Scotland it was a ‘blessing’ to tour around the world spreading the positive message of Bob Marley.

Not being strangers to Scotland The Wailers have performed here on numerous occasions dating back to July 1980 during Marley’s last tour. However the reaction of the sell-out crowd would make you believe this was a one in a lifetime opportunity to see the likes of anchorman Aston ‘Family Man’ Barrett provide the ‘riddum’ section alongside his son on drums who replaced the late Carlton “Carly“ Barrett.

Every song had the audience clapping, dancing and cheering under the red, yellow and green lights and not even the rendition of ‘Redemption Song’ could calm them down. The encore included tracks like Punky Reggae Party, Positive Vibrations and Time Will Tell with Marley’s message of One Love still reverberating around the World.

A show not to be missed.

George Stirling (HNC Radio Broadcasting) will broadcast his interview with Dwayne Anglin in his upcoming request show and more photographs taken by NC Film and Photography student, Rebecca Scolley can be found on our Facebook page.
