X-O-DUS English Black Boys CD
Talent-spotted by Joy Division manager Rob Gretton, Manchester reggae band X-O-Dus is best known for its classic single English Black Boys, produced by Dennis ‘Blackbeard’ Bovell and released on Factory Records (Fac 11) in 1980.
Remastered by Peter Beckmann in 2021 and featuring Peter Saville artwork, this edition includes both sides of the Factory single as well as 9 album demos recorded in 1980.
X-O-Dus performed at live events such as Zoo Meets Factory Halfway (August 1979) and Factory By Moonlight (April 1980). In time-honoured Factory fashion Fac 11 was released almost a year late, being the only reggae record to appear in a sleeve designed by Peter Saville.
