Generoso and Lily’s Bovine Ska and Rocksteady: Keble Drummond’s Mod Label 2-11-20

Hello Bovine Ska and Rocksteady Friends,

We dedicate this week’s show to Orson Bean, F.X. Feeney, and Bill Smith, three remarkable gentlemen who passed away this weekend.  All three, in very different ways, helped to make Los Angeles better with the love and dedication to the arts and in their honor, we passed on doing our usually cynical Anti-Valentine’s Day show and instead brought out a lot of joy. We started with two sets of rare ska beginning with Keith Walker’s 1965 mock boxing ska match between Duke Reid and Prince Buster, “Musical Fight.” We followed those sets with a hand-percussion heavy mento set and followed that with jamming set of reggaes from Lily that featured the late Glen Brown’s 1974 take on Aaron Neville’s hit, “Tell It Like It Is.” Our spotlight is on Cables’ founder, Keble Drummond’s short-lived but wonderful, MOD LABEL that has top cuts from Keble and Jah Fish!  Rest in peace F.X. Orson, and Bill ❤ XO Generoso and Lily
