Formed in the mid-sixties by seven young British-based musicians of West Indian descent, Symarip first made their mark as the Bees, supporting Prince Buster on a nationwide tour in 1967. Soon after, the group was signed to President, changed their name to the Pyramids and found UK chart success with ‘Train Tour To Rainbow City’. Throughout the remainder of the sixties and early seventies, the septet worked tirelessly, cutting discs under a number of aliases, most notably Seven Letters and Symarip.

The group’s 1969 hit ‘Skinhead Moonstomp’ encapsulated the classic ‘skinhead’; its throbbing bass-line, simplistic melodic structure and catchy chorus providing all the necessary ingredients to make young British lads and lasses forget their troubles and hit the dance-floor. Soon after the single saw issue, Trojan released the aptly-titled ‘Skinhead Moonstomp’ album, a collection of Symarip tracks that, along with ‘Tighten Up Volume 2’ would soon become considered an essential Skinhead long-player.
