Set up in 1975 as the house band of the Channel One Studios owned by Joseph Hoo Kim (following Skin, Flesh and Bones), The Revolutionaries with Sly Dunbar on drums and Robbie Shakespeare on bass have created the new "rockers" style that would change the whole Jamaican sound (from the roots reggae to the dub) and be imitated in all other productions. Beside Sly and Robbie, many musicians played in the band: Betram "Ranchie" McLean, Radcliffe "Dougie" Bryan on guitar, Ossie Hibbert, Errol "Tarzan" Nelson, Robert Lyn or Ansel Collins on keyboards, Uziah "Count Sticky" Thompson, Noel "Scully" Simms on percussion, Tommy McCook, Herman Marquis and Headley Bennett on saxophone, Bobby Ellis on trumpet and Vin Gordon on trombone.
