2/9/2012 Rocket Ship Ska Trip

 

2/9 in a nutshell
We've plugged "skeatles" on this show before, but this week, prepare to meet the real thing! The Skeatles, much like Ringo Ska, are an all-Beatles-covers ska band, this one HQ'd in Groningen, Netherlands, where this live gig recording originated. Our "fab" 4(+2)-in-a-row also had Ringo Ska in it, as well as Skapontas. GotchaSKAvered's J-Lollipops week 2 was sung by Mie Nakao, we had another new Pinstripes track, Sherwood reprised Perez Prado's epic "Voodoo Suite", and the "Ooh" belatedly celebrated the same-day (this past Monday Feb. 6) birthdays of Bob Marley and Derrick Harriott. Jerk to the Ska!
