9/23/2010 Rocket Ship Ska Trip

 

9/23 in a nutshell...
Laurel Aitken's Lucille (unrelated to the gal Little Richard knew), kicks off an hour lightly sprinkled with debuts ancient and more recent, ending with a rare ska cut by Japanese neo-disco outfit Perfume, making their RSST debut! Sherwood takes off with an epic cut by the late Middle-Eastern surf guitarist Omar Korshid_ well, the word surf scratches the surface (sorry!) of what this guy was capable of, but he could really let the Dick Dale-isms fly! Dale, of course, is Lebanese himself, and surf is one of America's first world-musics, incorporating blues, rock'n'roll and Middle Eastern influences galore. Rounding out the set, Jack Fascinato springed, sprang and sprung, Cal Tjader stomped at the Savoy, Shiina Ringo made the rain come down, and Dr. Buzzard marched with the Nignies. _Nignies?_ The 4@4 was another local set, this time involving The Contenders among others, and Maggie Mae popped lollies while Ria Bartok covered a Tracey Dey b-side. _Besides..._ oh, listen and find out for yourself... we're on the archives!
