Welcome! On this week's episode of Generoso and Lily's Bovine Ska and Rocksteady WE WILL TAKE REGGAE TO THE MOON! We have put together a two hour show featuring reggae tracks inspired by the 1969 NASA moon landing! Lily, and I, Generoso mixed those rare and well known JAMAICAN SIDES FROM 1969-1978 in between news reports of the that moment in history and some wild SPACE DISCO in the background! It is an exploration into deepest darkest silliness with a reggae beat! Check it out! Feel free to join our group on Facebook to hear about coming spotlights, rare Jamaican music photos and shows in the So, Cal area. XOXO Generoso and Lily!
Check out our blog where we do write ups of our the Bovine Ska, reviews of comic books and lost films of 1970s and cool Vietnamese and Italian recipes:
I remember doing the MOON WALK (Jamaican Version) as a child. So I was online hoping to find the music. You guys have made my day. I was looking for one song and here you have a whole set of these songs. How did you find these? Did you remember them from childhood I only remember the Moon Walk Dance. BUT I have to give you props for assisting me in my quest to find this music. This is just what I needed. What made you do this? Please let me know why you decided to do this. I will be performing my show First Jamaican on the Moon in February and I would like to do a link to this show -- on my web page, Please let me know if you approve. Here is my email and my website.

Loving this show - it kind of goes with the upcoming eclipse as well. (I'm catching up, slowly!) I'm ashamed to admit that I always thought Michael Jackson invented the Moonwalk!! Also never knew how long Symarip has been around - Monte Neysmith commented on my facebook post, where I mistakenly attributed his awesome performance of Skinhead Girl/Sweet Caroline to Derrick Morgan - quite sure alzheimer's is beginning to set in ... :-)
Thanks for listening to this one Kelly :) Yes, Symarip has been around since 1969, one of the great Brit reggae groups of that era and super fun always. Glad you got to see them.
We are huge fans of the "nap." Also, since laying off the sugar, we feel like supermen :)
This is so much fun.... and I am old enough to remember the day we put a man on the moon. U R too much
Thanks Melody! This was a super fun show to plan out and although I didn't see the moon landing live, I have always been amazed that we were able to do this. Please share the show with friends :)
