Music

10/11 in a nutshell…

Working our way back from the Home Stretch again, GotchaSKAvered featured another live Skatalites take of Latin Goes Ska (“Pachito E Che”)… this time from the Teatro Armenio in Buenos Aires, Argentina, from the concert that became “In Orbit vol. 1” as released by Grover. The 5@5:05 (these things tend to kick off at 5 past, so I’m just gonna run with it) was all about the ska puns_ from Skaravan Petrol to Skaramouche and beyond, “ska” finds itself part of a larger word in these song titles, most of which come from the original Jamaican ska era (the odd one out in that regard being “Skaravan Petrol” by Giuliano Palma’s pre-Bluebeaters outfit Casino Royale. Also heard: original-era ska dude Jimmy Cliff’s alt take of his new 21st-century ska classic “One More”, sandwiched between The Slackers and TSPO. Sherwood could be heard relaxin’ with some epic-lengthers (Herbie Hancock’s “Butterfly” clocking in at 11:16, f’rinstance) after trying out his Finnish-made rocket-powered surfboard… what a blast that was, to the tune of Rocket Motors’ “Man High”! Cozy & the Cap’n launched the “Ooh” with a typically splendiferous set of old-school ska’n‘bluebeat, from both inside and outside a’ Yard. Boogie!
