King Sturgav

Page history last edited by PBworks 11 years, 5 months ago

King Sturgav, also known as simply Sturgav HiFi was U-Roys Sound System. It is also frequently referred to as (King) Sterograph. It started in the mid 70's some time after that King Tubbys sound system had been destroyed by the police.

 

The name was an abbrevation of U-Roys sons names and his own. St for Stewart, U-Roy and Gav from Gavin. The sound has also been called Sterograph. Sturgavs name doesn't have any relations with Sturmars that was the sound owned by Skeng Don.

 

Deejay on Sturgav, except for U-Roy himself, was Ranking Joe. Later on followed Brigadier Jerry, Charlie Chaplin and Josey Wales.

 

Sturgav featured on the first ever live dancehall record "Live At The Fish Club" released in 1983.
