On tonight’s episode of 100% Ska, we explore the musical influence classic Hollywood westerns and more rough and tumble spaghetti westerns have had on ska and reggae through the ages – whether its a direct music melody, the name of the song, a clip from the movie, or even just overdubbing a few pistol shots to get you in the mood.
From the classic sounds of Trojan Records and The Upsetters to the modern influenced take by Prince Fatty and The Mutant Hi-Fi or Soweto, you’re gonna want a slug of whiskey and dusty poncho by the end of the episode!
As always, your DJ Ryan Midnight aims to please, and he’s damn quick draw on the fader!
