Artist Profile
Kiddus I
Dec, 1944 ~
A truly mysterious Rastaman who musical flowering in the late 1970 saw only a handful of singles emerge and a brief glimpse of the man himself in the Island film Rockers. He only ever pressed small numbers of copies of each single and hence they were difficult to find, even at the time release, which only added to the mystery of the man.

Real name:
Frank Dowding
Place of birth:
Jamaica
Born Frank Dowding in December of 1944. His chosen moniker, 'Kiddus (I)', reflected his Rastafarian beliefs and means 'blessed one' in Amharic: the ancient language of Ethiopia. He was a member of the legendary Rastafarian drum driven Ras Michael & The Sons of Negus from 1971 to 1978 - playing the funde drum. Along side this work he ran a Rastafarian Commune that produced crafts for sale.

In the late 1970's he managed to establish his own 'Shepherd' imprint on which he released a few singles. It was one of these releases that bought his name to the fore in deep roots reggae: 'Security in the Streets' and 'Too Fat' were issued on a fine Disco 45 in a lovely picture sleeve (very rare for JA issues). The single was recorded at Lee Perry's Black Ark studio and caught the vibe of the time – Kiddus was a prominent member of the Peace Movement that worked against the growing tide of violence, which was engulfing Kingston at the time. 'Crying Wolf' was the only other single to make it to vinyl from his time recording at the Ark – whilst another bunch of tracks went missing.

It was the film 'Rockers' that bought Kiddus to a far wider audience as it featured him recording 'Graduation in Zion' in the studio. His distinctive nasally falsetto and angular looks making a powerful impression on viewers. Reflecting Kiddus's place in the Rastafarian community he went on to cut one single, 'Love Child' at the Tuff Gong studios. His final vinyl releases – 'Harder' and 'Time' were recorded at the Sun Dragon studios in NY, in the early 1980's.

This brief period of activity ended when a planned album was lost and then the enigma that is Kiddus I dropped out of sight until the French label Dub Storeleased Inna De Yard in 2005. In 2007 Dub Store (of Japan) issued an album – 'Rockers: Graduation In Zion 1978-1980' that for the first time pulled together Kiddus I's 1970's recordings: suitably some 30 years late! Some tracks had been released on vinyl whilst others had remained on tape since the day they were recorded at Tuff Gong and Sun Dragon studios.
