The Story of Lovers Rock

Often dubbed ‘romantic reggae’, Lover’s Rock is a unique British sound, developed against a backdrop of racial tension, the Brixton riots and sound systems in the late ’70s and ’80s.

Directed by award winning director/producer Menelik Shabazz, The Story of Lover’s Rock combines comedy, live performance, interviews and archive footage to shed light on the music and the generation that embraced it. Contributors to the documentary include UB40; Maxi Priest; Levi Roots; Linton Kwesi Johnson; comedians Angie Le Mar, Robbie G and Eddie Nestor, alongside new artists such as Ava Leigh and Lovella Ellis.

Lover’s Rock was the feel good music at parties and clubs that brought intimacy for young people in the ’70s and ’80s. The music allowed them to experience intimacy and healing through a dance known as “rubbing”. They identified with the music as it spoke to their notions of romantic love and formed a coping mechanism for what they were experiencing on the streets of Great Britain.

Despite international success, the genre has been hugely ignored by the British mainstream. Yet the music went on to influence a number of successful pop bands in the ’80s such as Culture Club, Sade, and the Police to mention a few.

Today the music is being embraced by young up and coming talent such as Ava Leigh and Lovella Ellis, daughter of the legendary reggae artist Alton Ellis.

A sleeper smash-hit when it was released in cinemas in late 2011, the film continues to woo audiences across the UK and America. The Story of Lover’s Rock looks back with serious affection at a musical phenomenon that has an enduring appeal for audiences of all ages.
