Pharaoh House Crash is a song by the pioneering Jamaican producer and songwriter Prince Buster. It is a cover of a song called Everything Crash by The Ethiopians that tells of the collapse of a society. A situation where 'the firemen strike, the watermen strike, telephone company strike, down to the policemen strike' is described over a two chord Rocksteady rhythm and the sentiments in these two songs are as relevant to this decade as they were in the 1960s when they were recorded.
Peter Lundy chose the song Pharaoh House Crash as a name for the band he formed in the 1990s in Brighton, England. The music he recorded back then is collected on the PhC website and mixes Reggae, Punk and House.
