9/22/2011 Rocket Ship Ska Trip

 

_9/22 in a nutshell..._
This week in GotchaSKAvered land, Lynval Golding was Wondering Now, but not with his usual band The Specials... he was guesting on Skanic's _Spare Shells_ tribute track. Spare Shells was a fine Australian comp in which bands from around the world played Specials tunes (and older tunes The Specials made famous all over again). Ship's Library was the theme of the 4@4... we didn't actually have to _bring_ any of it; it was already there! Sherwood B. Funn had vibraphones on the brain (always Funn to be had when Sherwood goes _that_ route) and in the Ooh, Kentrick Patrick was the recipient of some Evening News, Millie loved Willie and Owen Gray Mashed It! ...just not in that order.
