The vocal trio Culture was formed by Joseph Hill, Albert Walker and Kenneth Paley aka Kenneth Dayes. Joseph Hill had already recorded the sublime ‘Behold The Land’ for Studio One in 1972. The ‘Two Sevens Clash’ (1977) set is their most celebrated album to date. After this release the trio entered an extremely prolific period in their career, recording excellent albums and 12″ singles. They split up in 1982, and since then Joseph Hill (as Culture) has enjoyed considerable success with a string of quality roots albums.
Joseph Hill died unexpected at Aug 19 2006 in the middle of an European tour after a sudden illness in Berlin Germany
