On this edition of EXD, some new release crate digging which showcases Arret, Klaptrap and Jug. As part of our Black History Month programming we have put together a set of punk bands covering Bob Marley covers and a set of punk bands playing reggae. We speak with the curators of Heavy Metal Karaoke in St. John’s. Our demo feature is also from St. John’s - a spanish speaking band named Desperta. And we get to speak with Otto Buj - the filmmaker for Dope, Hookers and Pavement about his film and the upcoming screening at Innis Town Hall next Sunday. 

Mojo Nixon passed away on February 7th. Mojo Nixon played psychobilly which is music that fuses rockabilly with punk and probably his best known song is “Elvis is Everywhere”. I played a song that I saw him perform at the University of Buffalo while opening up for Butthole Surfers.

A new movie has come out about Bob Marley called “One Love”. February 6th was Bob Marley Day celebrating Bob Marley’s birth. February 3rd saw the passing of the Wailers bassist Aston “Family Man” Barrett. There is too many things suggesting we needed to look into punk bands that covered Bob Marley.
