The Upsetters

The Upsetters was an early Jamaican reggae band which, in late 1969, released its only notable recording when the double A-sided single, “Return Of Django” and “Dollar In The Teeth”, ascended to No.5 on the British charts.

Decades later, these two tracks were used in the soundtrack to ‘Grand Theft Auto: London’, a video game series of the late 1990s. “Return Of Django” can also be heard in ‘This Is England’, a dramatic British film from 2006.

Some members of the group by 1972 had become Wailers alongside Bob Marley.

You can find “Return Of Django” on the list of my favourite recordings, which is located in the suggested playlists. I shall be adding to this list from time to time.
