The Congos are a reggae vocal group from Jamaica which formed in mid -1970s and have been active until the present day. They recorded their popular album ‘Heart of the Congos’ with Lee Scratch Perry.
The Vinyl Factory has partnered American multi-media artist Doug Aitken and the Barbican to bring his acclaimed ‘Station to Station: A 30 Day Happening’ to the UK for a month-long, building-wide, art intervention, from Saturday 27 June – Sunday 26 July.
For the duration of the event, which features residencies, installations, live performances, workshops, screenings and more, The Vinyl Factory has created The Vinyl Factory Recording Studio to provide a space for musicians and artists to experiment and improvise and has installed The Vinyl Factory Press on-site to manufacture these recordings into vinyl editions.
The Congos recorded ‘Fisherman’ as part of the original Station to Station, which crossed North America by train from Atlantic to Pacific over 24 days in 2013. Pressed on-site at the Barbican Centre for Station to Station July 2015.
