Wax! Crackle! Pop!

Wax! Crackle! Pop! Show #17: Where the faces shine

Monday, March 17


RIP Stooges drummer Scott Asheton. We kick doors down with the most infectious groove committed to wax circa 1970 that changed everything. After being down on the street with rubber legs we get funky and graze the sea with feel. Radio waves crash in, washing us over with African grooves and unconditional moves.
