4/12/2012 Rocket Ship Ska Trip

 

4/12 in a nutshell...
Tro-Tone? 2jan? Whatever you call the "Ooh" this week, it was made up of Trojan oldies compilation tracks and 2Tone-era goodies... and our *brand-new unreleased ("unrl.") custom bumper-timed bumpers. Sherwood then took us into orbit around his world for an hour of the likes of Hal Blaine, YMCK, Frank Comstock and Masaru Sato(h) (and we've seen it spelled elsewhere both with and without the 'h'), and the trip back home included an upcoming-gigs set (Umbrella Bed opening for English Beat at the Cabooze 4/15, Prizefighters and Dropsteppers warming up Deal's Gone Bad at Triple Rock the night before_ wish we'd brought the DGB), and continued with an instrumental sax-led GotchaSKAllipop leading into a Return-Of-Winter set commemorating 2 nights of sub-freezing lows. Freeze, 'skeeters!
