10/13/2011 Rocket Ship Ska Trip

 

_10/13 in a nutshell..._
Bad Manners GotchaSKAvered this week, the hometown crowd took over the 4@4, Steady Earnest got off on the Good Foot, Sarah McAllister made us all go Stop, hey, what's that sound... ? and Israel Vibration reminded us of the _real_ Christopher Columbus (Rip an' run off... ). Meanwhile on the Voov, Sherwood B. Funn mixed up a heady brew of Saturday morning cartoon themes (King Kong/Tom of T.H.U.M.B.), steel orchestras (Katzenjammers and Highlanders straight from T'n'T) and electrolounge (Mr. Excitement). A steel orchestra (playing Byron Lee's Jamaica Ska) also made it into the Ooh alongside Don Drummond and Sugar Dandy.
