Andy Capp

b. Lynford Anderson, 1941, Clarendon, Jamaica, West Indies. Anderson worked on various recording sessions for a variety of performers in Jamaica. An early production of George Penny’s ‘Win Your Love’ confirmed his ability as a studio engineer. In 1969 he co-produced Derrick Morgan’s remake of his 1961 hit ‘Fat Man’. Following on from the success of his work with Morgan in 1970 Anderson teamed up with Clancy Eccles, and engineered ‘Herbsman Shuffle’, a hit for the DJ King Stitt. It was while with Clancy that Anderson crossed the studio floor, demonstrating that he was also a competent artist. Adopting the name of the disagreeable strip-cartoon character Andy Capp, he performed ‘Pop A Top’. The tune featured a ‘chugga chugga’ organ riff interspersed with comments from Andy Capp: ‘Ah - The monkey speaks his mind - Pop a top - Pop a top - Sip a sup - Sip a sup - taste the tits - taste the tits’. In the UK, Radio 1 disc jockey John Peel featured the tune on his radio show, which resulted in a number of complaints. He was quoted in The Sunday Times A - Z Of Reggae as commenting ‘any music which agitates the listener might be worth persevering with’, and he continues to play reggae alongside his usual mix. The tune was also utilized by Canada Dry’s marketing department for their promotional campaign in the 70s. In 1971 Anderson returned to the microphone where, with Byron Lee, he recorded ‘The Law’, which was a dancehall smash and featured a continuing version on the b-side. When U-Roy performed over the classic rocksteady hits of Treasure Isle, the DJ style almost changed overnight and Andy Capp’s style was no longer fashionable; he soon returned to the mixing desk. His engineering skills were featured on many recording sessions, including Bob Marley And The Wailers when they recorded at Dynamics Studios.
