There has been much fanfare in San Antonio recently surrounding our expansive homage to Latin kings, The Royal Jesters. But before the English Oldies renaissance of 2015, there was the celebration that accompanied the rediscovery of Mickey and the Soul Generation. Back in 2003, when there were still records to reissue, Josh Davis (dba DJ Shadow) made a case for the Texas heavyweights, calling them “[his] favorite funk band” and reissuing their complete works on his fledgling Cali-Tex concern, revealing them to a whole new beat generation. But San Antonio always knew that Mickey and the Soul Generation was special. And in America’s 7th most populated city, Mickey and the Soul Generation are officially plaque-carrying members of Texas’s musical royalty. Congratulations!
In related news, our own Rob Sevier (who loves to swim) will join Jonathan Toubin this Sunday on the luxurious W Hotel Wet Deck for an afternoon of festive 45s. Austin, TX. No running on deck. Tickets are available here: TICKETS
