The POTATO 5 were one of the few ska bands active during the mid-80's in the UK. Originally an instrumental band, they were later joined by vocalists Floyd Lloyd, and then the Godfather of ska, Laurel Aitken. They made a number of recordings on Gazs Rockin Records including the original version of Sally Brown, Mad About You and the instrumental Western Special. In 1986 the band performed a live set on Radio One’s Janice Long show introducing them to a wider audience. They were then signed by Stiff Records, who unfortunately went bust, but the second studio album True Fact had been recorded just in the nick of time and was released on Rackit Records in 1987. The band played throughout the 80’s, touring UK, Europe, USA and Japan, with Spider Johnson taking over the vocals. The band called it a day in 1990 but reformed in 2022 to perform at the London International ska festival and Freedom Sounds festival in Germany.

Crowned the undisputed ‘Queen of Lovers Rock’ by her fans, award winning CARROLL THOMPSON’s emotional vocals and high-energy live shows are legendary. Her musical journey has taken her to Europe, the Caribbean islands, USA, Argentina and Japan. Carroll’s first solo album entitled ‘Hopelessly in Love’ has achieved iconic status as the bestselling Lovers Rock album by a UK female artist, selling over one million copies.

Her warm sensual vocals and honest song writing symbolise and capture the magic of the soulful Reggae genre called Lovers Rock.

With a career spanning decades, Thompson's music continues to inspire and uplift fans around the world, making her a must-see act for any ska enthusiast.
