11/18/2010 Rocket Ship Ska Trip

 

11/18 in a nutshell...
Owen Grey Mashes It, and The Skatalites Can't Sit Down. Raymond Harper goes on a Safari aboard the Sloop John B, Bunny Skitter catch their Chauffeur driving drunk, and Lynn Hope is, simply, Shocking... and that's just the opening oldies set! Both Freetime and Mr. Funn have new stuff from the Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra, and that _other_ Tokyo act, Jihen, chime in with one of their album Sports's cutest songs ever, Utten Kekkou, just after Steve Turre's epic The Emperor. Island Records were responsible for this week's 4(+1)@4, and we had 2 Lollipops this week, and the Lolli takes next week off. Listen on the archives, -and see ya at The Dropsteppers' show at the Hex on Friday!- edit: there was no Dropsteppers show at the Hex on Friday... 2 shows were scheduled for the same stage on the same night, and the 'Steppers lost out to the guy who wrote the _Friends_ theme... Oh, well! Mr. Solem put on a good, tight pop set, by the way.
