Without mentioning Anthony Red Rose, impossible to discuss the distinguished sound of King Tubby and his Firehouse label. The artist was an essential figure who recorded the song called "Tempo", on a new original rhythm produced by King Tubby, which immediately became a symbol of the 80's dancehall. During this period, King Tubby and his entourage have created prolific rhythms while running the Firehouse label. Luckily, Anthony Red Rose was able to come on the scene with his 'out of key' style and to release several hits such as 'Old Pan Bangrang', 'Under Mi Fat Thing' and 'Worries Again'. "Me No Want No Boops", on the classic roots reggae rhythm "Here I Come", features humorous voice arrangements by Anthony himself, and this is another killer song within the Firehouse catalogue.
