Time for some comedy.
Judge Dread (Alexander Minto Hughes) was a British reggae and ska singer. He was the first white reggae performer to have a hit in Jamaica. Many of Dread's songs contain sexual innuendo and, as a result, he has had 11 songs banned by the BBC, the most songs ever banned for a single artist, in a few cases it appears as though the censor didn't bother to listen to the songs and simply banned them because they were by Judge Dread. Prior to becoming a recording artist Hughes was a nightclub bouncer, a bodyguard, a professional wrestler, a debt collector and a DJ. He took the name Judge Dread from a Prince Buster song and his first recording was of a parody of another Prince Buster song Big 5, which he called Big 6 and achieved the 11th spot in the UK record charts despite not receiving any radio play due to it's lyrics. Hughes died from a heart attack as he walked off stage after a show at The Penny Theatre in Canterbury on 13 March, 1998.
Big 6 was Judge Dread‘s first single and was based on the Prince Buster underground hit Big 5. Big 6 is much tamer than Prince Buster‘s song and less explicit. Like many of Dread‘s other songs it contains a lot of sexual innuendo, creating humour by not actually saying what it means, and includes some alternative versions of popular Nursery Rhymes. While this song, along with many other of Dread‘s records, was banned by the BBC in the 1970s it is very tame by modern standards. This video is a live version that was recorded in 1992 at the Kent Karate School‘s Christmas party.
