The Plates is a Punk/Reggae collaboration based out of Denver Colorado between original Samples drummer Jeep MacNichol and Uk/Bronx vocalist Stero Lion. The lineup includes drummer Jeep MacNichol (originally from Toledo, Ohio), bassist Ian Anderson (originally from Kingston Jamaica) and vocalist Stero Lion (originally from England/The Bronx).
Last week, I caught up with drummer Jeep MacNichol to ask some questions about drumming and the new album by his band The Plates. The album is called “Blast” and is the third release for this Denver punk reggae band. We met at a tavern on Colfax and enjoyed a couple pints. These were his answers:
our next show is friday 8/11 opening for 311 at Levitt Pavilion in Denver
The new album is called “Blast”…Dancehall Toasting over Blast Beats, Drum Machines, Robots, and Fuzz Guitar….we’ll be giving away a free copy to everybody at the show…set time is 10:00 pm… $5 cover
