Our 5/27 show podcast is up – featuring a conversation with Coati Mundi
Written by admin on May 28, 2011
Our 5/27 Revenge of the 80s Radio show podcast edit is up and available at the bottom of this post. In hour 2, Coati Mundi is our guest. While is he best known for his work with Kid Creole and the Coconuts and Dr. Buzzard’s Original Savannah Band, Coati (Andy Hernandez) is an all-around entertainer who combined his natural comedic talents, musical inclination and his uncanny ability to learn quickly to become an all-around entertainment renaissance man. Mundi recently released the album Coati Mundi is Dancing for the Cabana Code in the Land of Boo-Hoo.
During our conversation, Coati Mundi and I discuss:
- His first instrument, the vibraphone
- Working with Dr. Buzzard’s Original Savannah Band
- Creating Kid Creole and the Coconuts with August Darnell and Adriana Kaegi
- The origins of Coati’s on-stage character and comedic style
- A special children’s DVD collection
- Coati’s new music
Mundi is a musician, actor, producer, comedian and dog lover. He tells the story behind the Cabana Code track “I Love My Dog, Doo Doo Doo,” tells us where the land of Boo-Hoo actually is and premieres some breaking news during our interview. The album is a mix of Mundi jammies ranging from the delightful to the musically profound, crossing genres and ultimately inventing his own. We also feature two cuts from Coati Mundi is Dancing for the Cabana Code in the Land of Boo-Hoo.
In hour 1, we play a 2010 track from Annabella Lwin and classics by Amazulu, INXS, Strawberry Switchblade, Men At Work, Bronski Beat and more.
