9/22 in a nutshell…
This week in GotchaSKAvered land, Lynval Golding was Wondering Now, but not with his usual band The Specials… he was guesting on Skanic’s Spare Shells tribute track. Spare Shells was a fine Australian comp in which bands from around the world played Specials tunes (and older tunes The Specials made famous all over again). Ship’s Library was the theme of the 4@4… we didn’t actually have to bring any of it; it was already there! Sherwood B. Funn had vibraphones on the brain (always Funn to be had when Sherwood goes that route) and in the Ooh, Kentrick Patrick was the recipient of some Evening News, Millie loved Willie and Owen Gray Mashed It! …just not in that order.

9/15 in a nutshell…
The Mixtress, Sami Koivikko and Mutant Frogs got the beatmix treatment in Hour 3, sometime after The Frits delivered quite possibly the only non-ska treatment of GotchaSKAvered September selection You’re Wondering Now you’ll ever hear, hot on the heels of a rocksteady-fied 4@4. Sherwood recently snapped up Senor Coconut’s Around the World from which we heard a Prince cover (not Buster, mind you, but Prince). Jaymz Bee took care of business, as did Lester Lanin (dropping an ad jingle medley on non-commercial radio listeners’ sensitive ears!) …oh, and are you feelin’ a change in the air? That’s Shiina Ringo and her jazz pals the Pimps (Soil @ Pimp Sessions, to be precise). La-la-la-la-la! In the Ooh, we heard the other Special Beat (the one not made up of 2Tone vets) and more of the finest ska of the ’60s, ’70s and early ’80s. Oooooh, yeah!
