1/19 in a nutshell…

In which we get Ringrolled! Also, Giuliano Palma comes In From The Cold while The Pietasters stay Out All Night. The Miceteeth are in a Meeting with gigantic (and presumably radioactive) ants, and some outfit called Qypthone don’t cover Marley, but Teresa Brewer does cover Millie! And leading up to all that, you ask?
Cool 4(+1)-in-a-row this week__ This Are Post-2Tone!
Starring the original Selecter having just bailed and going direct-to-Chrysalis, the Dammers-less Specials of the ’90s (on MCA), the always Buster-ful Bad Manners (on a Fatty-helmed Blue Beat, and later Moon), and Madness undercover as a cover band (The Dangermen)! In the Voov, Sherwood unearths tracks from a 3rd Tipsy album he’d never heard of before (Buzzz on Ipecac) and drops some interesting 45s into his set, and (ooh!) a well-rounded hour of first- and second-generation ska is bookended by King Desmond at the start and Morgan the Hoople at the finish. Inbetween… well, hear it for yourself!

It’s a guy show, featuring strong, masculine voices from Jerez and Huelva.
