7/28 in a nutshell…

Sing it with me now: It’s Fun To Listen To Wyyyyyy-Emmmmm-Cee-Kay!! …and YMCK don’t even cover The Village People! (They DO cover Frankie Valli, and in French, to boot, but that’s another story for a different show.) Sarada Shabadaba marks the 8-bit swing band’s splashdown on Sherwood’s Planet in high style! What do they sound like? Well, imagine a bunch of old Tetris and Galaga machines having a jam session after-hours down at the arcade… and then a trio of the 23rd century’s cutest jazz singers chime in in slightly-too-perfect harmony… welcome to chip-bop (which is actually just the tip o’the iceberg for this outfit!) Meanwhile, over in ska land, politics rules the 4@4, Prince Buster joins The Selecter for Madness on the GotchaSKAvered, and a certain Derrick wishes he were an Apple.
Crunch!
