Another huge night in the Echo Chamber. Starting off with a great new release by The Breadwinners on the King Spinna label. Also new tonight: a tasty new EP from M.A.K.U Soundsystem “A Very Funky Christmas” from Redtenbacher’s Funkestra; and the “Desierto” EP from U-Niko (on Ape Choons). Tonight we also did a Green Queen Records set – to celebrate their 5th anniversary – which included Weirdub, Dr. Cat, Dub Terminator, Polcari, DJ Pony, and Diaspora. More new sounds from the Soothsayers, Bass Culture Players, Lo’Jo, Sangue Bom, Tack>>Head, Yabby You (from the archives), Cineplexx, and All India Radio.
Two from the Sci-Fi Radio series of 1990. The Twonky, by Lewis Padgett, in which a man gets a new stereo console, and then finds it can do a number of things a regular stereo can’t do, including think for itself. And Shape, by Robert Sheckley, where invading aliens assume a shape appropriate to their function, and wonder at humans who seem to have the same shape all the time.
