Pa Cartwright revisits Ringo in French. The Living Marimbas’ unique take on Folsom Prison Blues seems to confirm reports that Johnny Cash really did back over their poodle with his Cadillac.

GotchaSKAvered’s July selection Madness gets the Georgie Fame treatment this week. Mr. Fame, of Blue Flames fame (heh, heh) was Prince Buster’s keyboardist on the Prince’s UK productions such as 1962’s Wash Wash. Shuffle-beat Ska made up the 4( minutes, and all of this commenced after Sherwood (he of Planet fame, speaking as we were earlier of fame… ) took us around a world populated by the likes of Lydia Lunch, Shiina Ringo and Perfume, not to mention the Son of Godzilla! A double shot of Twist (from Owen Gray and Gary U.S. Bonds) made its way early into the first hour. Funny, even the Bonds number sounded a bit like Ska… Chikitup!
