UB40 at Live 8

UB40 is the name of a popular Dub Reggae* and pop band that was formed that was in 1978 in Birmingham, England. (*The Dub reggae style is created by adding extensive reverb and echo effects to an existing musical piece. Dub reggae is sometimes accompanied by snatches of the lyrics from the original version.)

UB40 took their name from that of the paper form issued by the British government for citizens who apply for unemployment benefits. UB40’s multiracial lineup revealed the working-class community its members came from. The band includes members who are English, Turkish, Welsh, African and Jamaican

They began their auspicious career in 1978 by purchasing instruments with money Ali Cambell received after a brawl fight. Very few of the members actually new how to play the instruments that they purchased.

UB40 began their career with politically-driven mantras and eventually found their niche in covers.
By the end of the year, the group was invited to tour with the Pretenders.

UB40’s "Food For Thought" single reached the U.K. Top Ten in 1980, thus beginning a long streak of chart appearances.

In 1988, UB40 performed "Red Red Wine" at a Nelson Mandela tribute concert. In the USA, a Phoenix radio station brought the single out for a second time around. Listener response was off the charts, and "Red Red Wine" re-entered the charts and went all the way to the top.

UB40 responded with another covers album, Labour of Love II. This album produced Top Ten singles with versions of the Temptations' "The Way You Do the Things You Do" and Al Green's "Here I Am (Come and Take Me)." UB40 next scored a huge hit in America with Elvis Presley's "Can't Help Falling In Love.” This track was initially featured in the Sharon Stone film Sliver and it spent seven weeks at number one.

Many of UB40's later recordings were motivated by 1960's ska and early lovers rock songs that would have otherwise been forgotten in the public eye.UB40’s new insertion of life into so many old Jamaican hits has had an upshot in many musicians and producers finding a new lease of life and money.

With a sturdy, decades-spanning career, UB40 has happily dodged future welfare lines. It is no surprise that UB40 were invited to join the Live 8 events. Their dabbling in political lyrics and long standing history in the various music styles made them a great choice for the global show.
