Radio Clandestino playlist from 4/1
My April Fool's show preview:
Radio Clandestino returns today with an April Fool special! Today we will be hearing from my new comp "American College Reggae Bands Pay Tribute To The Doors". Also: dubstep remixes of Supertramp & Christopher Cross, a look at the rise of 80s pop hair metal, an hour long version of "Sugar Magnolia" as played by Phish w/ Dave Matthews. And all the bossa nova Beatles covers you could ever want. Tune in and you'll be forever altered!
Fortunately we didn't have to hear any of that garbage. But we did have the pleasure of selecting some music of two of the greatest voices in the history of recorded music. April 1st & 2nd mark the birth of the great "jazz-poet" Gil Scott-Heron and both the birth & tragic end to Marvin Gaye's life. One of the greatest singers my ears have ever heard, Gaye was shot to death by his father in 1984, one day short of his April 2nd birthday. We have to give thanks to both Marvin & GSH for delivering songs that reflected all the beauty, love, bitterness and problems that life brings us.
WMUA brings you Radio Clandestino every Monday 230-430pm (EST).
Unfortunately Andujar lost the playlist. Here is an approximation of the day's program, as best as possible in recollection:
Note: the GSH image was found here.
Ahmed Abdul-Malik..."Isma'a"...Jazz Sahara...(Riverside)
One of my favorite artists, he was an early fusioneer mixing North African rhythms with bop jazz, as early as the mid 50s.
Kaleidoscope..."Seven-Ate Sweet"...Incredible Kaleidoscope...(Epic)
The Devil's Anvil..."Besaha"...Hard Rock From The Middle East...(Columbia)
Koudede..."Hat-iman-in" (She is in my heart)...45...(Sublime Frequencies)
Otis Rush..."All Your Love I Miss Loving"...So Many Roads...(Delmark)
Live in Tokyo '75. Great LP!
Marva Broome & the Art Ensemble of Chicago..."Mystifying Mama"...v/a-Jazz Bizniz 3...(Counterpoint)
While in Paris the AEC cut a groovy 45 with this mysterious (American?) singer, for the Horse imprint.
Salah Ragab & the Cairo Jazz Band..."Neveen"...Egyptian Jazz...(Art Yard)
Gil Scott-Heron..."Lady Day and John Coltrane"/"Home is Where The Hatred Is"/"When You Are Who You Are"...Pieces of a Man...(Flying Dutchman)
Three of his best songs direct straight from the classic LP.
Last Poets w/ Bernard Purdie..."Blessed Are Those Who Struggle"...Delights of the Garden...(Douglas)
Drummer Bernard "Pretty" Purdie can be heard on the great Pieces of a Man LP featured above, as well as providing the funky drums here.
Last Poets..."Black Rage"...Holy Terror...(P-Vine)
Bill Laswell produced, the tune contains a loop of one of my favorite Alice Coltrane tunes, "Stopover Bombay".
Marvin Gaye..."T Plays It Cool"...Trouble Man soundtrack...(Tamla)
Marvin Gaye..."You're the Man" pts 1 & 2...The Best Of...(Motown)
Originally on two sides of a Tamla 45 ca. 72, cut with Hamilton Bohannon's band.
Marvin Gaye..."Anger"...Here, My Dear...(Tamla)
Gil Scott-Heron & Brian Jackson..."The Bottle" (live)...12"...(Street Sounds)
DJ Paul Nice..."Funky Breaks"...5 Fingers of Death Battle Breaks vol 2...(Super Break)
Joe Cuba Sextet..."Psychedelic Baby"...v/a--Latin Psychedelia...(Rough Guides)
Keep your ears out for the forthcoming LP or 2xCD release of this DJ Bongohead compilation. Quite nice on the selections, including the disk opener from the late Joe Cuba.
Pinduca..."Sinhá Pureza"...O Rei do Carimbó...(Philips)
Los Chapillacs..."Marión"...45...(Mass Trópicas)
One of my current favorite groups is Peru's Chapillacs. A Western Mass based label released this crazy 45. The band's drummer Renato did the killer sleeve art.
Los Golden Boys..."La Buena Vida"...v/a--Rocket Infinity: The Global Rise of Rocking Music 42-62 10"...(Mississippi Records)
Elena Madera..."Pu-chun-ga"...v/a--Jukebox Mambo...(Jazzman)

An early side from the Texas Cannonball originally from a 1962 Federal 45.
The Mohawks..."The Champ"...The Champ...(Vampisoul)
Dog Faced Hermans..."Peace Warriors"...Hum of Life...(Konkurrell)
Ornette Coleman's free-jazz gone anarcho-punk.
Discharge..."State Violence State Control"...45...(Havoc reissue)
Great Swedish hardcore band. Since I last heard them I have started to notice the term "D-beat" has been to used to describe their style. I used to refer to all the Dis bands that copied them as "Dis-core".
A snippet from my favorite communist pro baseball pitcher Bill "Spaceman" Lee..."My best pitch is a strike."
Pedro Serano with Jobu...watch.
Liquid Liquid..."Cavern"...Liquid Liquid...(Mo Wax)
outro from Bob Ueker from Major League...
