Culture – “Two Sevens Clash” (1977)

August 8, 2008 at 11:09 pm (Jamaican Music, Reggae)

This classic reggae song from 1977, from the longtime roots reggae trio. This song was huge in Jamaica and was a big favourite with English punk rockers, such as The Clash.
As for the significance of the title, Rastafarians believed the apocalypse would begin when the two sevens clashed, with July 7, 1977, when the four sevens clashed, the most fearsome date of concern.
