1/19 in a nutshell…

In which we get Ringrolled! Also, Giuliano Palma comes In From The Cold while The Pietasters stay Out All Night. The Miceteeth are in a Meeting with gigantic (and presumably radioactive) ants, and some outfit called Qypthone don’t cover Marley, but Teresa Brewer does cover Millie! And leading up to all that, you ask?
Cool 4(+1)-in-a-row this week__ This Are Post-2Tone!
Starring the original Selecter having just bailed and going direct-to-Chrysalis, the Dammers-less Specials of the ’90s (on MCA), the always Buster-ful Bad Manners (on a Fatty-helmed Blue Beat, and later Moon), and Madness undercover as a cover band (The Dangermen)! In the Voov, Sherwood unearths tracks from a 3rd Tipsy album he’d never heard of before (Buzzz on Ipecac) and drops some interesting 45s into his set, and (ooh!) a well-rounded hour of first- and second-generation ska is bookended by King Desmond at the start and Morgan the Hoople at the finish. Inbetween… well, hear it for yourself!

Strong show in support of Occupy and the sense of struggle today. Followed by a taste of Montreal then a transglobal reach to the Pacific w/ sounds from Indonesia & Hawaii.

See below for playlist.

Starting out with Shirley Scott, then music from vocalists Charles Brown, Ellen Martin, King Pleasure, and Kurt Elling. Followed by Twin Cities Artists: Mark Vandermyde, Doug Haining, Mary Louis Knutson, and John Devine.

If you are a Sun Lover this is your kinda show. If you dig Pulsations, this is your kinda show. If the song titles Lust, Tony’s Wife, and Snake Dancer fire your loins, this is your kinda show. If you like Tropical Fire with Your Voodoo, this is your kinda show. And if you can take a few Hammer blows, Day in and Day out, without throwing in the towel, THIS is your kinda show.

Tom Ardolino, RIP, in NRBQ and Song Poem form; If David Fincher wouldn’t give you the Stockholm Archipelago, the Fubar Omniverse can; and some hot numbers left over from KFAI Rocks
