Pato Banton


Birmingham, Britain reggae vocalist/toaster Pato Banton (given birth to Patrick Murray) made his debut in the British Beat’s third record, 1982’s Special Defeat Service, supporting out Position Roger in the monitor “Pato and Roger a chance Chat.” Five years afterwards, Banton returned along with his debut single release, Never SURRENDER, which featured support by Birmingham’s Studio room Two house music group and a visitor appearance by Paul Shaffer; the recording was enlivened by Banton’s comic vocal characterizations. An EP offering several versions from the Never SURRENDER monitor “Pato and Roger Arrive Once again” (another duet with Rating Roger) made an appearance in 1988, adopted the next 12 months from the full-length Visions of the Globe, which discovered Banton shifting towards a poppier spirit/reggae strategy. 1990’s Wize Up! (No Compromize) included Banton’s 1st American university radio strike, a cover from the Police’s “Spirits within the Materials Globe,” and a duet with Metal Pulse’s David Hinds around the name monitor. Following a dub cooperation using the Mad Teacher (Mad Teacher Recaptures Pato Banton) along with a live recording (Live and Kickin’ AROUND America), Banton documented Universal Like in 1992. It required him some time to create brand new materials later on; he finally resurfaced in 1994 having a edition of Eddy Grant’s “Baby KEEP COMING BACK” performed with Robin and Ali Campbell of UB40, which strike the British graphs and prompted the best-of Selections. Banton finally shipped a full recording of new materials in 1996 with Stay Positive. Existence Is a Wonder followed within the springtime of 2000.
