6/20/2013 Rocket Ship Ska Trip

 

(6/20/13)

We here in the Rocket Ship/Mutant Frogs universe like to occasionally unleash half-baked versions of future bumper tunes on all you skassengers so you can hear them develop over time, and sometimes they’re not even titled yet! That’s the case with the “Newly-Untitled Ska/Techno/Disco Thingie” that got used as a bumper twice tonight. You’ll hear this thing evolve in the next couple of weeks… thisweek, we sandwiched it between Azie Lawrence and Jennifer Lara during the “Ooh”, and between Buford O’Sullivan and an all-*Froggie* 5 (none officially released yet!) in the Home Stretch. Also in our third segment, Kid Vinil and his band Magazine “Meu Bem’d” the Lollipop in Portuguese, lifting arrangement parts from the Bad Manners version we’ll get around to next week. Then, some local action featuring The Prizefighters (who conveniently left a couple of brand-spankin’ new own-label 45s lying around the studio) and Megalith artists The Dropsteppers, who we’re happy to report have an every-Monday-night house gig at Nye’s Polonaise Room, just across the river from downtown Minneapolis… so now you’ll know where d.j. Cozy’s hangin’ out Monday nights! Now, let’s not forget to mention Sherwood’s Planet. In addition to dropping Herbie Hancock’s electronic/acoustic weirdie “Rain Dance” into the mix, Mr. B. Funn also grooved with some bossa nova, Quincy Jones style, and we don’t mean the track that re-hit when Austin Powers came out (even tho’ that’s on the same album!) …and also check out the cuts by Les Baxter, Jun Togawa,and Sylvia Love peppering the playlist. ‘Til next time, Tune In… and Stay Tuned!
