CIVL Station Manager Aaron Levy pays tribute today to The Cascade’s production guru Caleb Campbell’s four most significant musical projects to date.
Uncle Jesse from Full House — “Doo Wa Ditty?”
Sung by the eponymous namesake of this artist’s real-life inspiration, the sideburn-focused Full House pretty boy enjoyed revisiting this classic Roy Orbison tune. I’m going to say only about five per cent of original Full House viewers actually knew the artist. I don’t know where UJ’s online presence is.
Atodaso — “How To Make A Large Amount Of Money And Achieve Consistent Happiness In A Small Amount Of Time With A Minimal Amount Of Effort On Your Behalf”
“How To Make A Large Amount Of Money And Achieve Consistent Happiness In A Small Amount Of Time With A Minimal Amount Of Effort On Your Behalf” is a great name to eat up most of your 50 words per song when you write a shuffle that includes this song!
Pest Synapse — “Stabbed in Your Hometown”
This song title may hit close to home, as the members of this project all live in a community that often sees outbreaks of violence. Or they are perhaps simply a group to whom violence and its prevalence in our midst is most ironic, compared to the tragic response that many react to it with.
GSTS — “I Get My Nooses Second Hand”
Though I do believe the vocals on this full-length recording, produced by Purity Ring’s Corin Roddick, who directly supported the most recent American leg of Katy Perry’s North American tour, were recorded by none other than Caleb the Campbinator, I do not believe he received liner credits.
