Michael Smith - Peel Session 24/04/1982

Michael "Mikey" Smith was a Jamaican dub poet active in the 1970s and early 80s. A social worker by day, he came to the UK in 1982 for a brief tour supporting Linton Kwesi Johnson, who also produced his sole album Me Can't Believe It. He died in 1983 aged just 29 from a blow to the head following an argument with three men at a political rally. This was the only session he recorded for Peel.
