5/8/2014 Rocket Ship Ska Trip

5/8 in a nutshell…

In 1964, the BBC unleashed This Is Ska on the world, a documentary considered in some circles to have been the Dance Craze of the original ska era. Watch, and you get step-by-step instructions for a variety of ska dance moves, as well as footage of enthusiastic clubbers ska-ing the night away at the Sombrero Club to a live performance of Byron Lee & the Dragonaires backing a who’s who of first-generation ska stars including Jimmy Cliff, the Blues Busters, Stranger Cole, Eric “Monty” Morris, Roy (Panton) & Yvonne (Harrison) and… the lone Prince Buster appearance, a buru/nyahbinghi-driven “Wash Wash” quite different from the official record release, making its RSST debut on this week’s show. Buster performed or produced over half the total back-catalogue of the original Blue Beat Records, our opening hour featured label this week and next. Hey, let’s skip over to the feature-rich Home Stretch. This month’s GotchaSKAvered selection, Mongo Santamaria’s “El Pussy Cat,” got the live Skatalites treatment down in Buenos Aires, Argentina, wound up on “In Orbit, vol. 1,” and made this week’s GotchaSKAvered installment. Theme of the 5@5:05 was Name That Ska… a buncha ska tunes with people’s names in the title. “Donatella,” “Jeanette,” “Cleopatra,” “Marcel Pierre,” and “Rosetta” were all at the party, but it doesn’t stop there… we had The Butlers and sequel band Lions Club (containing many of the same members) playing Dueling TV and Movie Themes, and who should turn up but “Perry Mason,” “Mary Tyler Moore,” “Magnum” (P.I.), “Charlie” (think “Angels”), “Inspector Gadget” (don’t know ‘is first name) and “Rocky” to deliver the KO! Now, the “Sherwood’s Planet” segment. Back-to-back horror soundtrack nuggets in the late going… Budy Maglione’s disco-fied “NYC Main Title” from Cannibal Ferox and the Tubby Hayes Quintet (as the “Biff Bailey Combo”) performing the announced “Ancient Voodoo Tune.” This was actually released as an extremely limited (666 copies!) vinyl 7” in ’09 on Trunk Records (on which the tune is identified simply as “Voodoo”), but we prefer the tune drenched in the sonically chaotic “supernaturally-besieged-nightclub” atmosphere you get with the actual movie (Dr. Terror’s House of Horrors) the tune originally appeared in. Also aliasing was Francis Bay (as “John Evans”) on the Directional Sound label with “Lisbon Antigua.” Well, more merry musical hi-jinks next week… tune in and stay tuned!
