2/3 in a nutshell…
We’ve once again taken to observing birthdays here on the Rocket Ship, and this week we had a bumper crop. Bob Marley, Derrick Harriott (on Bob’s day!), Lester Sterling, Arthur Lyman (the inspiration for a few choice Skatalites covers for Top Deck) and Hal Blaine, who gave us a percussive psych instrumental for every month of the year. Cakes and candles aside, some outfit calling itself the Special Beat existed in the late ’60s, beating the Specials/English Beat blended band by a good quarter century! They recorded for our fine feathered physician friend Dr. Bird… Our initial 4(+1)-in-a-row plan (3 minute heroes) got Busted up real bad this week, February’s GotchaSKAvered tune is Don Drummond’s Confucious, we got Frosted with The Dualers, and we threw in a Skeatles set… Ska for mop-tops! Like David Lindley once said, Ev’wybody skweem!
