OCCUPY MN update.

12/1 in a nutshell…

Beatles covers made up the 4@4… and the GotchaSKAvered Ska Cover-of-the-Month Club selection for December, Ob-La-Di, Ob-La-Da. Paul McCartney named the principal character in the song (Desmond) after Desmond Dekker, and sho’nuff, Mr. Dekker went ahead and covered it! Wouldn’t you? I know I would. Anyway, Desmond Dekker had a record in the market-place… and here it is, complete with a bit of Dekker’s own Wise Man tacked on at the end. Sherwood brought more of his recently-acquired KFAI Record Sale goodies (basically, this stuff comes from one planet to another… Jet Set to Sherwood’s. Big-ups to Glen!)
A newie invaded the oldies hour, as sometimes happens ‘round here.
Skankworks/IMT side-project Carr/McWheele Orchestra expands our in-house bumper selection with Time Beings, which is going to remind you of something… ain’t sayin’ what. Enjoy!
