6/16/2011 Rocket Ship Ska Trip

 

_6/16 in a nutshell..._

OOPS! The 4@4 shoulda had Zap Pow's Wild Honey in there somewhere; the set was instead bookended on both sides by Tommy McCook's The Watergate Affair! Oh, well... as good an excuse as any to begin the show's description with an Oops, right? At least GotchaSKAvered came out as planned_ Bad Manners treated us to their take on Exodus. Mr. Review also brought Tarzan kicking and screaming into the '80s, and Natty Bo delivered a double-shot of Ska Cubano. Working backwards, Sherwood B. Funn sampled papayas and mangos a la Rosemary Clooney _and_ Shiina Ringo (straight from the Shady Nuke!). Sometime during the oldies hour, a UFO crashed in '47. It was one of ours... happens a lot around here. ;^)
