Dat Cumbia Man

A flier for the Oh Messy Life radio program consisting of handwritten text over a collage of newsprint advertisements.

Oh Messy Life – December 1, 2022 Show Notes

Track 1: Cecile McLorin Salvant – Wuthering Heights

Heard about this one from Larry Bob, of the zine Holy titclamps.

Track 2: Miquela e Lei Chapacans – Dizco rural

Another track I found via a recommendation on Mastodon

Track 3: Dezron Douglas – Luna Moth

This one I found via Bandcamp promotional email.

Track 4: Rickie Lee Jones – Dat Dere

Tommy Strange, of the band My Name is Joe, of all people recommended this one.

Track 5: Secret Emchy Society – Cowboys Are Frequently, Secretly Fond of Each Other

Another recommendation via Larry Bob.

Track 6: Orville Peck – The Curse of the Blackened Eye

From the KZSU A-file

Track 7: Discos Resaca – Cumbia Esta Noche

Another discovery from a Mastodon recommendation.

Track 8: Ritmos Tropicosmos – Cumbia En La Sierra

Local bay area cumbia band. Word is they are taking a bit of time off right now to record a full album.

Track 9: Dick Hyman – The Man From O.R.G.A.N.

Many many years ago, when I first started at KZSU there was another new DJ named Rae Sue. That was where I first heard Dick Hyman, along with Les Baxter, Esquivel! and much more.

Track 10: Jim Campilongo – I’ve Got Blisters On My Fingers

The Jim Campilongo and the 10 Gallon Cats album is an all time favorite, so I thought I would check out some other material.

Track 11: BIG|BRAVE – do.no.harm.do.no.wrong.Do.No.Harm.Do.No.Wrong.DO.NO.HARM.DO.NO.WRONG

Pretty sure I heard about this band on Mastodon also.

Track 12: AninoKo – Buhay at Lupa

From their album Ugat.

Track 13: THE Q FACTOR – Stand Up In The Name of Archibald Tuttle

I never saw The Q Factor, but I did quite enjoy a subsequent band, Former Members Of Alfonsín.

Track 14: End of the Line – Sedative

From the remixed and remastered version of their self titled LP.


Another Bandcamp promo email find.

Track 16: Warlock Pinchers – Devil Without A Pause

I have memories of talking to GX Jupitter-Larsen of The Haters about Warlock Pinchers many years ago.

Track 17: Victims Family – Anti-Satan Song For Mom

I remember when CDs were relatively new, because they held more music, Victims Family put out a CD with two of their previous albums on it. I always thought that was pretty punk.
