_The RSST Nutshell - 8/21/14_

The "Ooh" bumped a few selections from a cd-r of favorite pre-mixes we made strictly-for-airplay years ago and called "DJ Helper vol. 1." Mixes included a "James Bond" mix (Roland Alphonso), an "Arte Bella" mix (Ken Boothe, joined midway by Stranger Cole) and a "Ringo (Starr)'s Theme" mix of a ballad version and a ska version, both from the same Skatalites recording sesseion at Studio 1. We back-announced over old, untitled (Mutant, of course) "Froggie fossils," and generally carried on as Sherwood, in orbit around his Planet, selected his picks for airplay from the Voovie doo Lounge circling his world. High on having heard a Kyary Pamyu Pamyu number at Como Park's annual Japanese Lantern Lighting Festival (complete with KPP's moves busted onstage by locals Thunder Wave) Mr. Funn dropped Kyary's "Point of View" (glitched by errant button-pushing, so he ran it again!) and "Giri Giri Safe" into his set, saving her more ska-like "Ninjari Bang Bang" (the track Thunder Wave bumped) for the Home Stretch. If you listen closely, you can even pick out the vocal-percussion hiccups inserted into "Bang Bang" by Yasutaka Nakata, Pamyu's ace producer, as well as a few of the Cap'n's own, busted live on-mic. Sherwood also spun a gem of a tune from Little Dragon's current 2014 release Nabuma Rubberband, that being "Cat Rider." Thing's been out since May... how have we not heard of it 'til now??? Great work from Yukimi Nagano and company, and we'll be shooting more "Rubberbands" your way in coming weeks. The Cardigans' lushly vibraphonic "Our Space" followed hot on the tracks of the "Cat." The Home Stretch kicked off with Mari Umeki serenading her "Boy Lollipop" in Japanese (just before Kyary banged), and the 5@5:05 featured, as we do from time to time, ska from well outside the "scene," and we will one of these weeks make an entire hour or more of that, or something like it. Tune in and stay tuned!

His new CD “Last Man Standing”, is his first solo album that he is touring with from August to November. Joe's music rides the edge of the first wave of transgender performers to break through into the public consciousness.  Joe performs and gives workshops on songwriting and queer/trans issues at colleges and universities and is a social justice activist for underdogs of all stripes, committed to honoring their vital contributions to the greater collective evolution. Joe’s tour brings him to Minneapolis for a folk-roots performance with V & The Dirty Pretty & River Glen.
