Jumping The Gap Show 8 Aug 2012
We began by turning on the Black Heat - which got way hotter once ex-funeral director & one-time arch-bishop Solomon Burke got us all heavy breathing with the-not-so-pious Everlasting Love. Yet somehow we ended up in 2-Tone ska territory 90 minutes later with the soon-to-be-visiting Go-Feet skankers, The Beat, asking thumb-screw iron-lady Maggie (& current conservative chips-off-the-old-tory-blockhead) to stand-down! The Beat may have disintegrated into Fine Young Cannibals/General Public b4 reforming, but hey, they were singing about the evils of Rupert Murdoch while many of us were still failing comprehension exams & wondering which shade of green to die our hair. Along the way today, we got housier than normal, even serving up a little dub-house, while Alkalino provided some re-thinks of, amongst others, Patrice Rushen. Hope you enjoy the journey & can join Fr. Burke in the end to say: "Thanks, I needed that!" All the best for your weekend. Paris
