Destiny's roads are...cos love set you free forever (played backwards)

Lickwood means rewind, gunshot means forward
You requested it so we rewind

Are you ready?

The backwards lyrics say some stuff like "love sets you free forever," but I can't remember the whole thing or where it's from  :lol:

The other bit is "Liquid means rewind, the gunshot means forward" etc.

"liquid" may (probably) actually be "lickwood"

It's liquid (lickwood just being a "hip" way of spelling it)

AFAIK it was common practice to ask to see "liquid" -- i.e. holding up your Red Stripe or whatever -- in the dancehall for the nice tunes

The backwards sample is from an Inner City tune, can't remember which one off hand.

Anyone know where the 'gunshot means forward' sample is from?  Some soundclash or something?  It's also in this: http://www.rolldabeats.com/release/kniteforce/kf015r

Wicked sample :D

I doubt that it is but it might have come from windows in the sky by acen on production house as it is very clean in that if not sped up a bit

I always thought lickwood meant dead & buried i.e lick the coffin wood (heh heh) but who the fuck knows???

I'm pretty sure it is lickwood, which basically means bang the wall really hard with your hands or whatever.

Lick wood.

From an old soundclash, can't remember which though.

"Lickwood means rewind the gunshot means forward, you requested it so weee rewind"

I prefer Logic's explanation: holding up your Red Stripe :)

Nah - 'Lickwood' means to shoot your gun into the ceiling...  'lick' (shoot) - 'wood' (ceiling)

Had me going for a few years though... still no news on where the sample comes from though. Not exculsively a soundclash tune anyway.

Yeah thats not the meaning. Liquid is the sound records make when you wheel forward, as in fast forwarding. Sounds like liquid pouring kinda.

it's definitely lickwood

meaning bang the wall

and lickwwod means rewind gunshot means forward - refers to the practice employed at old reggae soundclashes

to progress 'forward' in the clash and basically stay in the competition - you need to get approval from the crowd for the tunes you're playing

gunshots in the air meant the crowd want a rewind

so

"lickwood means rewind - gunshot means forward"

Tim Westwood used to play the sample as part of a jingle for his Capital Rap Show programs...

it would go:
"... Sound boy, I would like to see
Your sound catch a fire
Selector drinking ice water
That will a cool off his temper...

Lickwood mean rewind gunshot means forward
You requested it so we rewind
On the Capital Rap Show,
ninety-five point eight"

It is the possible source for the sample, although I would be inclined to think Tim Westwood got the
originator of the phase to re-do it, dubplate style, as a special jingle for him.

the original source for the sample is from a reggae clash

I do have a recording of it somewhere but not easy to hand (in a pile of blank unmarked cd's)

If I  remember rightly  it's got ninjaman as one of the mc's for the soundsystem - think it could maybe be arrows .

Ok, Ive done some research on this. the most likely sample source is from an intro on a 1990 Fashion 12" - version of Cutty Ranks' The stopper (Main attraction remix).

The general consensus amongst reggae nerds seems to be that this is the voice of longtime deejay Jah Walton alias Joseph Cotton, and he did this as an intro/jingle for fashion in the late 80s/early 90s... which fits in with the westwood theory - this was also heard on Rodigans show AFAIK.
