From wikipedia. Is this right?

Leo Williams (musician)
Leo Williams, also known as E-zee-kill, is an English-Jamaican bass guitarist residing in the United Kingdom.
...
Williams also featured in the 1997 film The Fifth Element as the fuel loader of the Fhloston Paradise shuttle.
He is also in the video for the brilliant Pass the Dutchie by Musical Youth.
Don't forget "The Don" did the vid.
Yep. I think he also had Leo in the retrospective vids he did for Bob Marley.
Yes I believe so mate. I think it's cool to include your pals in stuff. I asked Don for a badge once and it came the very next day. :lol:

This has been on YouTube a while but is new to me. Any info welcome...

I just polished off some Low Country shrimp & grits and a mess of collards. That's a hell of a strain on the arm.

Always liked that song. Wish it didn't sound so dull on the record.

It has one of the worst mixes I've ever heard. Sounds like it's coming from underwater.

Seriously, what were they thinking, muffling the vocals like that?

I was glad to see the song appear in the BAD Files, hoping for a decent mix at last. Imagine my disappointment when I learned it was a completely different track.

The snare drum and synths are unfeasibly loud in comparison to the vocals. That's what makes it sound so uneven.

Applecart is a great song. The mix on Tighten Up is a bit bland for me in general. Mick's guitars and vocals are both too buried in the soup.

Some really great songs in my opinion on that album just let down by the mix. If it had had a more rock 'n' roll mix we would all be praising it. I'm still a fan of it though.

One thing I will say about the mix on Tighten Up, it is not great at all but Mr Walker is rendered unlistenable. It sounds nothing like the rest of the tracks on the album.

Yeah, I watched it at the time and also tonight. It was a shame they never had much mainstream success after that. I thought they were set for a decent run in the charts but it never quite happened for them.

They make a lot more sense in context.

Yeah, it's easy to forget the debut album was on the UK chart for over 6 months, a very decent run.
