Anyways, It's been a loOoNG time since I've gone to a live show-- NY is getting me back to my roots. You get so tied up into the nightclub/party scene as a DJ that you forget (well maybe sometimes you do) that a whole 'nother world exists out side of a dark basement or club where the walls of bass and lasers hide.
I grew up listening to Jamaican ska bands like the Skatalites while attending D.I.Y. Shows surounding the ska/rocksteady counterculture. I collected The Specials, Isaac Green and the Skalars, Hepcat, the Impossibles, Mephiskapheles, Operation Ivy.... and now BACHACO.
