about

The second LP from New Age Steppers, Action Battlefield slightly pares down the line-up found on its predecessor and hones in on vocal-heavy, extended version-like renditions of songs originally written by the likes of Horace Andy ("Problems"), Black Uhuru's Michael Rose ("Observe Life"), B.B. Seaton ("My Love"), and the Heptones' Leroy Sibbles ("Guiding Star"). Features a vocal from a teenage Neneh Cherry, step-daughter of jazz firebrand Don, who had been singing back-ups in the touring line-up of The Slits and would shortly form Rip, Rig & Panic with former members of The Pop Group, before going onto an internationally successful solo career.
