Beard radio 3 March '08

This week: a couple of reggae classics produced by the late great Joel Gibb, who sadly passed away the other week, and some hard driving psychedelic soul from Buddy Miles, another sad loss. Plus sweet outsider folk from Michael Hurley (top photo), neo-tropicalia party sounds from El Guincho, gorgeous vintage Cuban pop from Los Zafiros (middle), gloriously nasty post-hardcore from Pissed Jeans, hard bop from Miles, ju-ju, heavy psychedelic dronage, and our favourite Swedish surf group splicing Jimmy Shand and Link Wray - yes, it can only be The Spotniks!

Apologies for the minute of silence after the first track - simple technology defeats me once again...
