House of Marley Approved: The Clash Sound System

ClashSoundSystem1Out in the city streets of 1950s Kingston, DJs and MCs traveled around in massive, moving trucks, packed with generators, turntables and speakers. These mobile sound systems sent ripples all the way up to London, England, where the Jamaican party vibe meshed with punk bands like The Clash. On their intense new box set, aptly named Sound System, the band has packed their entire career into one small portable audio system-like creation. Capturing the band from their youthful punk days on through to their heavy dub and reggae period, Sound System is a document of why The Clash has long been considered “The Only Band That Matters.”

Tyler Wright and Owen Wright Join Team Marley

When looking for Team Marley members, we aren’t just looking for the most skilled and stylish at their craft. We want people who are committed to living life the way they want to live, while still respecting the earth and the community that surrounds them. That’s why we’re proud to announce the addition of two lifelong surfers, Tyler Wright and Owen Wright, to the ranks of Team Marley.

Born and bred surfing off the coast of Australia, Tyler and Owen got their start at an early age thanks to their older brother and father. The brother and sister duo’s dedication to surfing every single day has paid off as they have quickly risen through the ranks to become the hottest surfers on the ASP World Championship Tour.

In addition to ripping up the ASP World Tour and repping our line of Earth-friendly headphones, watches, portable audio systems and Lively Up bags, the Wrights are also taking the time to give back. Recently, the duo taught a surfing clinic for kids in Northern New South Wales at the Hurley Australia High Performance Centre. Check out the video below of the Wrights teaching a new generation of rippers and offer them a warm welcome them to Team Marley:
