Disaster Bird was a very pleasant surprise! Six versatile musicians literally heated up the studio. We had to play TWO "Previously" segments just to cool off: The Como Avenue Jug Band and from our 88th show, Moondogs 88.
Kicking things off tonight with McPullish’s excellent new “Black Metal White Reggae” album (Charlie’s Records); followed by the latest Vibronics & friends on SCOOPs Records; King Django & Victor Rice with “Dub Discoveries From Version City” (celebrating 20 years of Stubborn Records); and the “Lost Album” unearthed and released by Groove Corp. Also tonight we did an Easy Star All Stars set to celebrate their “Thrillah” tour (and my trip to Chicago to see them). More great new stuff from Tafari, Beats Antique, Kukan dub Lagan, The Dynamics, The Dubsmith, Victoria Moralez, Damo Naimad, The Vibraphonic Orchestra, and Dada Afrik & Calcia.
