Also see Joshua Hayes, Dub7, The Kessells. http://007-boston-dub7.com/ 2) Pseudonym of Ott Karp, Estonian musician and DJ, also known as Dzheimz. 007 used to be his drum'n'bass/jungle-only production name. 3)New Orleans' rocksteady band 007 is the brainchild of Jeffrey 'the Houseman' Clemens (drummer for G. Love & Special Sauce). Named for Desmond Dekker's 1967 rude boy anthem, 007 was born to revive the well-loved and oft-forgotten songs of rocksteady's very limited heyday (1966-1968).. With Clemens singing and anchoring the beat, guitarists Alex McMurray and Jonathan Freilich make up the front line. McMurray is best know as front man for popular New Orleans rock band Royal Fingerbowl. Freilich, a local avant-garde jazz mogul, plays with the New Orleans Klezmer Allstars. The lineup is rounded out by bassist Joe Cabral, who is best known as saxophonist for Tex-Mex outfit the Iguanas. More on http://www.007rocksteady.com/ Read more on Last.fm.
