Zion Train was founded by Perch (live dub mixing /production), in 1988. The live line-up has always been very flexible, varying from Perch and a vocalist for sound-system gigs, to an extended line-up for larger events. Zion Train live always features a variety of renowned vocalists but primarily, the band have been fronted by Dubdadda.
They are one of the finest live dub acts on the planet and promoted the practice of dynamic onstage dub mixing which they perform alongside acoustic instruments and the best vocalists. As well as being purveyors of the finest Roots Reggae music, Zion Train were heavily involved in alternative and DIY underground culture in the UK during the 1990s.Zion Train have been one of the planet's most prolific groups, along with a mammoth recorded output and innumerable production credits, remixes and song writing collaborations they have produced magazines, CD-ROMs, Internet sites and built sound systems. Their early releases were on their own Universal Egg label, until in 1995 they signed to China Records. They released the world's first promotional dub music video for the 'Get Ready' single and caused a furore with the publicity campaign for their ‘Homegrown Fantasy’ album.
