7/21 in a nutshell… and we mean a NUTshell!

One of those nuts, er, nights… the moon musta had something to do with it. We didn’t even gotcha SKAvered ‘til nearly the end of the show, but when we finally did, it was Prince Buster’s live 1967 On Tour version driving us to Madness this time out. Our set of tunes related to each other by having nothing whatsoever to do with the moon was supposed to be confined to the 4@4, but that plan got off the launchpad without us aboard for the ride! Sherwood had better luck with a more consistently thematic second hour, while the Opening Oldies Hour (OOH!) navigated a rather circuitous series of orbits. But, aren’t they all? Just for the record(s), this show featured the Skatalites, the Ska-talites and the Ska-ta-lites! Oh, and Roland Alphonso, too.

7/14 in a nutshell…

GotchaSKAvered’s July selection Madness gets the Georgie Fame treatment this week. Mr. Fame, of Blue Flames fame (heh, heh) was Prince Buster’s keyboardist on the Prince’s UK productions such as 1962’s Wash Wash. Shuffle-beat Ska made up the 4()@4, The Selecter stomped their way through Bristol and Miami for a great 4 minutes, and all of this commenced after Sherwood (he of Planet fame, speaking as we were earlier of fame… ) took us around a world populated by the likes of Lydia Lunch, Shiina Ringo and Perfume, not to mention the Son of Godzilla! A double shot of Twist (from Owen Gray and Gary U.S. Bonds) made its way early into the first hour. Funny, even the Bonds number sounded a bit like Ska… Chikitup!
