5/12/2011 Rocket Ship Ska Trip


_5/12 in a nutshell..._
Working backwards from the 3rd hour like we did last week, we just had to send in Ringo the TSPO after Prince The Kid from Phoenix City Buster (this week's GotchaSKAvered entry)_ that match-up was too good to pass up! Ska from the European mainland (including a French Lollipop) made up the 4(+1)@4, Sherwood kicked off his middle-hour orbit with a brand-spankin' new Tokyo Jihen BIG BAND track(!) scored by anime (and occasional Godzilla) soundtrack guy Takayuki Hattori, and the opening oldie hour included a couple of 2-Tone flavored tracks featuring guys from Mott The Hoople and Hawkwind, in additionn to usual suspects like Tommy McCook, Roland Alphonso, Ernest Ranglin, etc. Oh, and Mango Jones has yer coffee.
