OK that’s it for my political punditry… (don’t bet on it)
Barack Obama is elected and the whole world loves one another, right?
Well, I guess we’ll find out. You need my expertise, and you know it.. hahaa
Anyway, in the mode of minding some of my own damn business for a while, I have been performing with a live band out of Chicago,,, The Drastics. I feature as part of their set, with another singer named Fada Dougou.
In the spirit of musical togetherness, The Drastics makeup is as diverse as you can get. African, German, Irish, Sicillian, Iranian… and the Crazy Baldhead from Panama. ) We didn”t plan it like that, one of them had to be very drunk, and he started pointing it out… I think it was the Irishman. Then the Sicillian kicked his ass while the German called the police, the Iranian set fire to the tour bus, and the African slept through the whole drama.
That’s how I knew I had found a home.
Anyway we can play any genre of music, BUT ‘The Drastics’ is a bad azz Dub-Reggae band.
The Drastics started gaining serious momentum last year, after we did the ’07 Ska Festival (yea mon music a music) in Knoxville Tn. We cultivated a nice name until our idiot drummer threw himself in front of a mack truck,. lol naaahhh…
What really happened was a hit and run situation, we were all worried as hell, but the kid is tough. We should be playing shows again in the next few months.
………… In The Meantime…
* Once a month The Drastics will be releasing a new single digitally (with a DUB.)
* Which ever one you all like best will be pressed to vinyl
