Welcome to our “The Devil Went Down To Georgia” YouTube wormhole, wherein the Charlie Daniel’s Band classic is re-interpreted in a variety of ways. Several are zany, one is borderline racist, one is evangelical but all of them all awful. You’re welcome.
The only reason we’re giving the K.M.C. Kru a pass is because we are suckers for that late 80’s early 90’s hip hop vibe.
Happy birthday Aotearoa. Happy birthday Bob Marley. And most importantly, happy birthday Neil Swiggs, Esq.
Going way back to 1979 in Auckland, New Zealand, legendary music journalist Dylan Taite interviewed legendary rastaman Bob Marley, an interview secured via the well worn journalist’s route of “having a kick-around.”
And here’s the playlist (not quite) in full… we’re missing a few minutes where we played the Melvin van Peebles song. Apologies. That’s what hot weather and power cuts does to broadcasting equipment.
In English, Scandinavia usually refers to Denmark, Norway, and Sweden.
When a speaker wants to explicitly include Finland alongside Scandinavia-proper, the geographic terms Fenno-Scandinavia or Fennoscandia are sometimes used in English, although these terms are hardly if at all used within Scandinavia.
More precisely, and subject to no dispute, is that Finland is included in the broader term ‘Nordic countries’.
Put that in your pipe and smoke it.
Happy birthday Herb Whisperer. Hope you like the BROS picture disc.
Near the start of the show I played Red 7‘s “I Lost My Shoes On Acid” (we’ve all been there, haven’t we?). I recently nabbed the track from the fantastic Keytars & Violins blog and thought that the vocal sample was quite familiar. Turned out to be Hugh Masekela’s 1984 hit “Don’t Go Lose It Baby”. A blast from the past, as they say.
And we finished off the show with Pet Shop Boys’ second single “Vocal” off their latest album “Electric”. Have a peek at the video below. It’s made up of footage of what looks like late 80s early 90s raves. Bloody brilliant.
