Chambacu Guardino Starburster

A flier for the Oh Messy Life radio program consisting of handwritten text on top of a photograph of a house on which a hummingbird has been painted.

Oh Messy Life – April 25, 2024 Show Notes

Track 1: Reda Zine – (Sabra e Chatila)

From the benefit compilation, Bologna For Palestine, which consists of excerpts from a 3 hour live relay performance by seventeen different artists.

Track 2: PALOMO – Chambacu (Aurita Y Su Conjunto) Remix

I mis-announced this one on the air, it’s actually PALOMO doing a remix of the Aurita Y Su Conjunto’s song Chambacu.

Track 3: Molly Lewis – Porque Te Va

I found this one via WFMU’s heavily played records page.

Track 4: Chaino – Mambo Inn

Speaking of WFMU, the BandCamp liner notes for this 1960s exotica album are from none other than Gaylord Fields.

Track 5: Judas Brutus – Lyrical Hitman

From last year, this one was recently repressed on vinyl.

Track 6: orchestra nostalgico – il guardino delle fate (from juliet of the spirits)

Track 9: MELTS – Altered

I found this one from a review by former KZSU DJ Gears.
