I’ve been obsessed with this mix my dad’s friend, David Suisman (former WFMU DJ/history professor), gave him called “Black Sabbath,” which is a compilation of black musicians covering Jewish songs. Out of all the song on Black Sabbath, I think this one has the most ‘insane’ mix of sounds. To listen to more weird songs, listen to my radio show, Beer in my Bed, Thursdays noon-1pm on WOBC. xox, Eve
