From: "Rev. Linda Slug" 

Here are the chords to the song What me Name? by the Jamaican funk-ethnic
crossover artist, Reggae Spoons. His "wife" (officially they are not
married) Joan plays bass, while Reggae plays electric and sometimes
acoustic guitars. The following is transcribed from Spoons' only UK
performance ever at the Citadel, St. Helens in 1988 as part of a Rasta
Revival concert. Bootlegs of the concert are easily available in
Liverpool city centre (Try Probe or Scene of the Crime), but the only
official release of the song was on a jamaican only 45 which has long
since been deleted. Reggae was a pivotal figure in the early 70s reggae
breakthrough and was reputed to have played in bands with Desmond Dekker
and Pete Tosh during the 1960s.

Instrumental break.
Reggae sometimes plays the sax here, but on this occasion (St. Helens) a
member of a different band, uncredited on the sleeve played the melody of
No Woman No Cry on the pipes. It fits quite well.

RS:Time for me to go now

JS:Reggae Spoons
