100% Ska Podcast S04E07 – Go West to Dance! Western Movie Influenced Ska and Reggae
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!
