10/14/2010 Rocket Ship Ska Trip

 

10/14 in a nutshell...
The post-Skatalites Soul Bros. featured heavily (3 45s!) in the opening oldies set, and we threw some Soul Cats in there as well.
From Skannibal Party 7 (the only volume of that series we've got down here) we had Mpls. locals The Prizefighters and Japanese ska powerhouse Skaff-Links. Sherwood had a boatload of deep album cuts this week, and followed those up with more weird old instro 45s he had on hand, and weird's just how we like 'em! The 4(+2)@4 was a 6-track salute to Chuch Wren and his Jump Up! ska/rocksteady/reggae mailorder empire outa Chi-town, including After Hours and Stingers ATX, both actually _on_ Jump Up! Records. NEW LOLLIPOP this week! Well, not exactly, really an old '60s-era Lollipop we've never heard before this week_ Los Antifaces with Mi Chico Bombon. And there's still more Lolli hiding out there in the deep, dark recesses of You Tube waiting to be discovered by the RSST... stay tuned!
