Spannered Oddcast #4
Skacasm Part 1
Randomoidz of London's Adverse Camber collective unfurls a four-and-a-half minute contraction of his favourite ska numbers for Spannered's fourth Oddcast
Last year we asked Rory Lemon, aka Randomoidz, if he'd be kind enough to put his boundless knowledge of ska music to good use and knock up a contribution to Spannered's Oddcast series. Not only did jump at the chance, but he opted for a two-pronged attack. Now we're pleased to unleash the first instalment: a properly spannered romp through choice cuts from his personal, erm, skarchive.
Rory did compile a tracklisting, but sadly it was scrawled on a piece of paper that was lost in the aftermath of a camembert fondue party. Hopefully he'll get a chance to write it all out again for us at some point (no mean feat, given the mix contains roughly a hundred tracks), but seeing as the sequel is almost upon us, we thought we'd best get part one out the door without further delay.
Expect appearances from the Skatalites, The Slackers, The Specials, Prince Buster, Hepcat, and even Rolf Harris. Keep it locked for part two!
