Big thanks to Pop Wagner:http://www.popwagner.com for joining me on the horse show edition of PWB. We heard lots of tributes to horses throughout the morning, and for the last half of the show it was all Pop as he shared many greats from his collection: Skip Gorman, Sean Blackburn, and Huun Huur Tu were some of the singing cowboys who helped us get along our little dogies this last Tuesday in August.
Really got into The Sandinista Project cd on 00:02:59 records (#7 and # 25 on the playlist below). This cd is a cut-for-cut cover of the famous 1980 Clash 3 disc LP Sandanista and it’s pretty good. There’s been a bunch of Clash Tribute CD’s and this one is noteworthy because the covers are reinterpreted in creative ways while still doing what good covers do – capture the spirit of the original. It rocks !
Tonight Dr. StrangeDub and DJ Baby Swiss set up shop at the Dub Club Tiki Bar for the annual Echo Beach dog days of summer special. It was a very different kind of Echo Chamber, as we played some rock ‘n roll (twangy, instrumental surf), old school soul and RB, jazz, lounge, sultry Latin beats, and pseudo-soundtrack stuff. Oh yeah…and a bit of dub too.
Mother Banjo:http://www.myspace.com/motherbanjo and Art Vandalay:http://www.myspace.com/artvandalaytunes joined us this morning from 8-8:30, to celebrate her new CD and hear some live tunes. We had a good time. We also heard new music this morning from Caribou, Zap Mama, and I am in love with the teaser ep from Iron and Wine, Boy with a Coin. Maybe you already knew that.
