Mike’s Monday Muse – The Specials

Mike’s Monday Muse is where friend of the blog, roots DJ, house show organizer, Bloomington Music Expo czar and all around nice guy Mike McAfee picks one song a week to share with the people.

The Specials (UK national treasure) interpret 12 tunes by Leonard Cohen, Bob Marley, Talking Heads, Staple Singers, and others on their 2021 release, Protest Songs 1924-2012. This Frank Zappa cover is a thumper of a rock jam.

Week Starter – Gaijin Smash

Week Starter is our new Monday column where we give you a new song to kick the working week in the ass & help you power on through.

Hello! Welcome to the new column, all about giving you the motivation to tackle this week with verve and pep and on occasion, piss and vinegar. Getting us started in fine fashion is Toronto’s dance punk group Gaijin Smash. Lo-fi, fuzzed out and catchy as hell, this is the only booster* we need. Turn it up and dance around your work from home office and make that zoom meeting into something memorable.

*no but seriously please get all the shots.
