YOU GOT GOOD TASTE vol. fourteen - Halloween, Trick or Treat?

Watcha Weirdos and Happy Halloween to you all

How could I not TRICK or TREAT you to a HALLOWEEN show? You should know me better (though I don't recommend it!).
As I've already shocked you with a monstrous mix of Vampire, Frankenstein and Wolfman tunes in my 'HOUSE of HORRORS' vol.13,
This show instead is all about what all you kreepy kids love best about Halloween night, the dressing up, the trick or treating and of course the pumpkin carving.

So what better way could you think of to celebrate this Halloween than to listen to this show whilst dressed in your finest fright mask, patiently waiting to scare the living shit out of any local kids that dare knock at your door!

TRICK or TREAT anyone?

Keep it Kreepy
Mr A The Barber

NEW SHOW - weekly dose of GOOD TASTE 21st Oct

Watcha Weirdos

and welcome to my NEW weekly dose of GOOD TASTE

If your a regular listener you'll know my tastes can be a bit eclectic!

So here's a chance for you to hear what lengths my rock'n'roll weirdness stretches to.Everyone likes looking through someone else's music collection, don't they?

With that in idea in mind I've decided to deliver you a weekly (hey, I'll try my best!) selection of what is currently buzzing around my ears.

This shows gonna be short and sweet because of its frequency (don't worry I'll still be putting out the longer YOU GOT GOOD TASTE themed shows), so for that reason it's gonna be limited to four killer, oldies but goodies!

I'm also gonna do my best to include a bit of info on the chosen artists, songs or any related trash that I think might be relevant.

Depending on what happens to be twanging my thang on any given week, I guarantee the tunes you'll hear will rock'n'roll and shake your soul.

Don't forget to check out my blog where you'll find all kinds of trashy photos, videos.... you know what I mean

Contact me with any suggestions or just to be abusive!

So here goes for this week, hope you enjoy it.

Stay Weird'n'Wild

Mr A The Barber

Bit of a Detroit Cobras related week at Mr A's

Solomon Burke - Stupidity

Burke began his adult life as a preacher in Philadelphia, and soon moved on to hosting a gospel radio show. In the 1960s, he signed with Atlantic Records and began moving towards more secular music.

"Stupidity" is a full fleshed out R&B dandy, complete with rolling keyboards a wailing horn arrangement and was the flip side to the 1963 song "Can't Nobody Love You" (a classic country soul ballad).

Apparently, the Stupidity was intended to be a dance, something along the links of "The Swim", "The Duck", etc.

Joe Jones - California Sun

Jones was a New Orleans pianist, bandleader, singer, promoter and talent scout whose peak years were from the late 1950’s through the mid-1960’s.

Joe Jones had two hit records in his career, “California Sun” being the less successful, reaching #89 in 1961. A year earlier, he had scored much bigger (#3) with the song he is best remembered for, “You Talk Too Much”

In 1964, the song was recorded by a band of Indiana teenagers, The Rivieras. Their stripped down, guitar-organ combo, surf/rock approach kicked it up a notch and took it to #1.

I’m Laughing At You” by the Gardenias is a fast paced piano based R&B, wrote and recorded for the Detroit's Fortune label in 1957

The Detroit Cobras - Stupidity

The Cobras are an underground rock & roll act that pays homage to the decades of artists who have hit the vinyl before them. These Motor City garage rockers combine gospel, soul, R&B, and '50s rock & roll to create a unique mix of retro innocence and tight, danceable music overflowing with rhythm and grit.

While a band that only does covers may sound like a one-trick pony, the Cobras manage to mine the hidden parts of bygone eras, coming back with gems that might go otherwise unheard to the next generations, and creating a great style of their own in the process.

"Shout Bama Lama" was originally recorded by Otis Redding & the Pinetoppers in 1960.

Welcome to my House of Horrors

Toccata and Fugue in D minor, BWV 565

The Toccata and Fugue in D minor, BWV 565, is a piece of organ music composed by Johann Sebastian Bach sometime between 1703 and1707. It is one of the most famous works in the organ repertoire, and has been used in a variety of popular media ranging from film, to video games, to rock music, and ringtones. The attribution of the piece to Bach has been challenged since the early 1980s by a number of scholars, and remains a controversial topic.
