Here's the official statement:
"Musically Mad takes you into the hearts and heads of the singers and soundmen, the backbone of the UK roots reggae sound systems. With them they bring the deepest bass and the highest chants, delivered by massive stacks of speakers and custom-built sound equipment. For some, attending a sound system dance is a religious experience, channelled through the music and the message. For others it`s the natural way to connect with the music they love. Either way, sound system culture is growing and changing.

From their humble beginnings in the backyards of Kingston, Jamaica, sound systems were brought along by Carribean immigrants, gradually gaining a strong following in the UK. As David Katz included extensive essay "Steel Horns And Bass Bins In Blighty" concludes, the dances were crucial in lifting the spirits of the Caibbean exiles, helping them to forget their hardships. Something that reggae and sound system culture now does worldwide, regardless of color or nationality.

MUSICALLY MAD is the story of the people pushing reggae to the masses"

Full heartily recommended, for any music fan.
