The Equators - Hippopotamus


The Equator’s latest single, Hippopotamus, revisits Desmond Dekker’s song originally recorded with the Birmingham band for his Stiff Records album back in 1980. Stiff Records’ Dave Robinson spotted the Equators supporting The Beat and invited them to work as session musicians on the Black and Dekker album. Hippopotamus was one of four tracks that The Equators played on. This subsequently lead to The Equators signing to Stiff and recording their cult album Hot! on the same label a year later, and consequently embarking on a World tour with other Stiff acts.
