6/30 in a nutshell…

Exodus, the GotchaSKAvered Ska Cover-of-the-Month Club selection for June (this week the dub version by week 1’s Sideburns from their Exodus album btw) ties in quite nicely with the 4(+1)@4 theme of Travel and Destinations, with entries from TC’s own Umbrella Bed, Kagoshima’s Authentic Rocksteady Traditional Ska practitioners ARTS, Tokyo’s Ska Paradise Orchestra and more. Sherwood was pouring mostly double-shots in the Voovie Doo, starting off with Shiina Ringo and the brand-spankin’ new Dai Hakken (Great Discovery) from her firecracker Tokyo Jihen outfit (making their big-band debut in cahoots with anime and occasional Godzilla soundtrack guy Takayuki Hattori wielding the baton)… Fly Me to Heaven, already a single, is now Dai Hakken’s 13th track! Leading into all this was a nicely all-over-the-map ska oldies hour delivered by the Cap’n and Cozy. Fast forward to The End (which happens here each week… ;^)) and the on-air singing debut of our regular Takeaway countdowner Cy Knopf (signing off!) ( …Cy-Kning Opf???) (Booooo…!)

Another show filled with a whole lot great new music. Starting things out with a Natural Dub Cluster track from the new Italian Dub Community – Showcase Vol. 3 compilation. Followed this up Secret Archives of the Vatican’s heavy new Barbary Lion and the self-titled release by See-I (on Fort Knox). More great new music from Copia Doble Systema, Kevin Kinsella, Don Corleon, Bandulu Dub, Longman, and more. The Swiss set kicked off in high style by debuting some fresh new Tokyo Jihen (Dai Hakken’s leadoff track), and mixing that into a dancehall goodie from Ari Up’s swan song Slits release Trapped Animal. Old-schoolers Jamaica Super Dub, Jackie Mittoo and Adrian Sherwood helped round out hour 3 in fine style.
