9/1/2011 Rocket Ship Ska Trip

 

_9/1 in a nutshell..._
Just in case you're wondering now what the September GotchaSKAvered Ska Cover-of-the-Month Club selection is... I just told you! That's right, the Andy Joey original, You're Wondering Now, gets The Specials' Peel Sessions treatment this week, and four more choice covers the rest of the month! Also, Dueling Umbrella Bands, both of whom play ska(!) made up the 4@4, plus we saluted the late Jerry Lieber in fine Giuliano Palma style with The Bluebeaters' Poison Ivy. Meanwhile, aboard the Voov, Sherwood B. Funn has discovered the charms of one Mini Kyute, here heard singing Stevie Wonder's My Cherie Amour... right after the incredible chanting weed. Also listen for some Sun Ra, and a brand-new Imelda May goodie. And to close out the Ooh, YMO's Yukihiro Takahashi Kid-Naps the Dreamer, winding up an opening oldies hour of everyone from Dennis Blackbeard Bovell to The Selecter to Toots to Prince Buster.
Pow! Right in the...
