Another summer show full of new music…and a couple of surprises. Starting off the program was the excellent new Kukan Dub Lagan:http://www.kukantaiko.com/ New Life New Vision. Other new items included Dawa Hi-Fi’s latest (Antik Things) and the very cool From the Oriental School of Dub from Fedayi Pacha:http://fedayipacha.net/ (on Hammerbass). One (by request) surprise: legendary folkie Arlo Guthrie in dub! And to celebrate the new Kukan release, our summer mix was Kukan’s Dub Journey.
Origins: The Police
Host Britt Aamodt explores the music of ’80s pop-rock trio The Police BEFORE they were The Police. A fan of the Police since 1983, Britt digs deep in her vinyl collection for early releases by guitarist Andy Summers with Zoot Money’s Big Roll Band, drummer Stewart Copeland performing as his alter ego Klark Kent, and bassist and vocalist Sting with the Newcastle trad jazz band Last Exit.
