Eclectic

A roadtrip-zonked Dr. Strangedub sat this one out and handed the reins of The Echo Chamber over to the Swissmeister this week.Yeah, this playlist looks short, but that’s ‘cuz it’s got some really lo-o-o-ong tunes in it, including the 13+min. stretcher “Ethiopia/The Lower Ground” from Bill Laswell’s “Book of Exit: Dub Chamber 4” as well as some epic Orb, and reggae discomix showcase business from both Joe Gibbs and Greensleeves. Add in a couple of choice Waveform goodies from International Observer and Warp Technique, plus some live on-air mixology layering rhythmic Kev Hopper over some quite ambient Ben Neill for a good 4+min. (leading into the aforementioned Warp Technique) and a couple of newly-hatched Froggies made their EC debut, including “The Eye of Cyclophibius” and the Eastern-flavored ska thing that wrapped up the show. And that, dubheads, is the lo-o-o-ong and short of it. The Doc’ll be back next week.

Tornado’s Tom Jennings and Elliot Gordon spun punk and funk from their collections; Gordon played from a reel-to-reel he records bands onto. Jennings spun UK and US punk and from his hometown Boston; Gordon spun all local. We also spun local band MYOTIS who they perform with tonight at Cause.

The Scoop Sisters – 4th Estate Sale – The Icebox Radio Theater in International Falls, MN brings us stories of the North country. It’s about a mother/daughter pair who buy the local newspaper and get to do small town investigative journalism.

While Luke is away, DJ Musically Rich will come to play…

Episode #406 – the “I lost my shirt” mix
On this week’s episode: experience whiplash in the form of Minneapolis’ own Bebe Bardon courtesy of Alshire records; we visit with Old MacDonald and learn that he not only had a farm but one fetching helpmate as well; plus Jumbo Goes Latin, Percussion Goes Colour; and something Lively and Latin from Pete Moore. Finally, before the night is through, we go on a Bongo Date with Mike Pacheco and meet the Man from ORGAN – Dick Hyman.

Lots of African sounds from the continent and the globe.

5 new arrivals launch this week’s Chamber… releases from Gaudi, Tsunami Wazahari, The Dubb Style, Cas Haley and Jaqee, to be exact. Calma Dub, Mystika Tribe and Dubmatix also turn up with new tracks later on, as do a couple of fresh Mutant Frogs hatchlings from the mind (and musical equipment) of DJ Baby Swiss.. But the real highlight this week was part 1 of “Around the World in 20+ Dubs” special – where StrangeDub joined TurnTableTerrorist (Terry C) on “Echo Beach” for the 7th annual dubwise trip. After Strangedub exited stage left, Swiss “poured dubbles” by Little Tempo, Tommy McCook and Channel U (though by the end Little Tempo turned into a triple) and filled in the gaps with tunes from The Disciples, Blackbeard, Junk Waffel, Mike Mainieri and Shiina Ringo, among others…

Flavor Crystals’ Josh Richardson joined SWC, spinning lots of psychedelic and garage, spanning decades and favorites from recent Psych-fest in Austin, TX!
