Tonight the Echo Chamber presented a full hour of The Drastics:http://www.thedrastics.com recorded live (by Turntable Terrorist) at Martyrs in Chicago last April. On top of this, Swiss and StrangeDub took a Trip to the Moon as we paid tribute to the Apollo 11 moon landing (July 20, 1969) playing a bunch of material with lunar and space themes…or at least titles.

Lots of new stuff, pretty new stuff, and recent re-releases in the Echo Chamber this week. Among the new items – TheTechnician’s Tribute to Paulette Peterson Dub (#1), composed in loving memory of a friend and bandmate taken so very early in life, and the middle eastern dub sounds of FedayiPacha’s new The 99 Names of Dub (on Hammerbass).
