2/24/2011 Rocket Ship Ska Trip

 

_2/24 in a nutshell..._
Jimmy Cliff finds Ska All Over the World, Pama Records proves there's more than one way to spell Rico, Morgan (Mott) Fisher 2-tones MacArthur Park before there _was_ a 2Tone, and... what if Roland Alphonso were a bell? Well, for starters, he could be ringin' it all-the-way-live all night long, just like the real bell that drove the RSST crew to distraction this week! We've since learned how to deal with that thing _next_ time it goes off... Mr. Funn mounted a 5-song salute to... no, not Shiina Ringo, but Yukimi Nagano (think Koop.'s _Summer Sun)._ In 4@4-land, it was Eastern Seaboard Time, and GotchaSKAvered sent Confucious off in high big-band-blowout style with the Jazz Jamaica All Stars. Pow!!!
