9/29 in a nutshell…
The end of summer, the end of September, and The End as a 4(+1)@4 theme! Indeed, even the GotchaSKAvered’s September selection is about The End, and the overall theme extended beyond that! Not to worry, though, we’re far, far, far from the end of RSST… you can have my ship when you pry the controls from my cold, dead fingers!:^) After Hours Tries It Again, TSPO Opens Our Eyes and Bonnie Pink doesn’t get Chrissie Hynde wrong! Backing up a bit, Sherwood delivers Perez Prado’s near-8-minute epic Mosaico Cubano, Arthur Lyman’s exotic Vera Cruz and the singularly unique Andre Popp’s Bloody Serenade. The Ooh, or Opening Oldies Hour, included choice covers of Long Day Short Night and A Rockin’ Good Way, as well as the Blues delivered by Rico’s British outfit The Rudies, just before Baba Brooks got upstaged by his piano player at a Jam Session… WOW, anybody know who that cat was? As Granville Williams might have said, he was Wailin’! That cut really fades too soon…

9/22 in a nutshell…
This week in GotchaSKAvered land, Lynval Golding was Wondering Now, but not with his usual band The Specials… he was guesting on Skanic’s Spare Shells tribute track. Spare Shells was a fine Australian comp in which bands from around the world played Specials tunes (and older tunes The Specials made famous all over again). Ship’s Library was the theme of the 4@4… we didn’t actually have to bring any of it; it was already there! Sherwood B. Funn had vibraphones on the brain (always Funn to be had when Sherwood goes that route) and in the Ooh, Kentrick Patrick was the recipient of some Evening News, Millie loved Willie and Owen Gray Mashed It! …just not in that order.
