 Rudeboy: The Story of Trojan Records

 “Rudeboy tells the story of Trojan Records, the story of the Jamaican community in Britain, and the story of working class musical subcultures — and it does it all tremendously in a off-beat fashion" Reagan Scott Ward, Honi Soit

Rudeboy is a film about the origins and ongoing love affair between Jamaican and British Youth culture. A film that explores the power of music to break down cultural barriers and change lives and the eventual birth of a modern multicultural society – all told through the prism of one the most iconic record labels in history, Trojan Records. Combining archive footage, freshly shot interviews and drama – Rudeboy tells the story of Trojan Records by placing it at the heart of a cultural revolution that unfolded in the council estates and shanty towns of the late 60’s and 70’s.
