Tonight we headed to the moon…and off into space as part of our annual “Lunar Lunatics” special commemorating the first moon landing on July 20, 1969. The lunacy included moon-related tracks like: “Renegade Moon”, “Man In the Moon”, “Mellowmoon”, “Black Moon”, “Walking on the Moon”, and “Lunar Base Dub”, and more space-oriented titles such as “Waltz from Outer Space”, “Spaced Out Babylonians”, “Jumping Jupiter”, and “Skankworks in Orbit”. And what a far-out mix of artists tonight: Green Fandango, Mayd Hubb & Joe Pilgrim, Banco de Gaia, The Orb & Lee Scratch Perry, Marcello Giombini, Ken Nordine, Full Moon Scientist, Uffe, Colonel Elliott & the Lunatics, Twile, Peter Thomas Sound Orchestra, and many more… Truly an out-of-this-world dubwise journey.
