Hi everyone,

A few months ago I was at Dub Club when a song called "Cush" came on.I didn't know who sang it, but after a little research I identified the artist as Abakush. I instantly loved their sound, and it has been stuck in my head since. When I look them up their is very limited info about them. No Wikipedia page. Discogs says that they were founded in 1981, and they were still making music in 1992.

Discogs only lists one album and a few singles by this band. How can this be possible of a band that was touring and making music over such a vast time period?

Any info would be greatly appreciated, and I'll happily buy any of their music if anyone can point me in the direction.

Thank you!!

So did they just have a couple of hits and peace out? Sounds crazy that they were a touring reggae band and only had a handful of songs (as far as I can see)
