Bandwagon ARCHIVE: April 12, 2008

March 3rd, 2011

This is the Bandwagon segment of the Friday All Night Show that was broadcast on April 12, 2008, 5am - 6am.   The program features a Rochester NY band, Duke Jupiter, and tracks from their fourth album, Duke Jupiter I.  It is perceived that the band wanted a new image, so after some personnel and music direction changes, their new label, Coast to Coast Records (distributed by CBS Records and owned by Fred Frank of BT Express fame) promoted them with the image that this was their first album, thus the title.  It is the last album featuring bassist George Barajas, who is featured on the cover and on some of the tracks.  The album also features new bassist Rickey Ellis.  Drummer Dave Corcoran makes his album debut here with Duke Jupiter, but had appeared on record previously as their drummer for the Powerglide Records EP, Begin Again, which was released between their contracts with Mercury Records and CBS, and likely used as an instrument to shop a new record deal.  

Other artists on this episode include Selfish Steam with members from Suffield CT and Western Massachusetts, as well as The Terraplanes, also from Western Massachusetts, both of which have sinced ceased recording and performing.  You'll also hear Cassandra Kubinski from NYC, the EZ Powell Band from Atlanta, Rocker from Rock-chester NY, solo James Adamo from NYC and originally from the Syracuse-Rochester NY areas via his work with the Todd Hobin Band, and a cut from Brooklyn prog rockers, Jupiter One from their album Jupiter One (no relation to Duke Jupiter I).  The show ends with Eagles' title track from Long Road Out of Eden; and then you can hear a bit of the musical wakeup call known as Polka Madness and DJ Johnny Prytko.
