Really got into The Sandinista Project cd on 00:02:59 records (#7 and # 25 on the playlist below). This cd is a cut-for-cut cover of the famous 1980 Clash 3 disc LP Sandanista and it’s pretty good. There’s been a bunch of Clash Tribute CD’s and this one is noteworthy because the covers are reinterpreted in creative ways while still doing what good covers do – capture the spirit of the original. It rocks !
Tonight Dr. StrangeDub and DJ Baby Swiss set up shop at the Dub Club Tiki Bar for the annual Echo Beach dog days of summer special. It was a very different kind of Echo Chamber, as we played some rock ‘n roll (twangy, instrumental surf), old school soul and RB, jazz, lounge, sultry Latin beats, and pseudo-soundtrack stuff. Oh yeah…and a bit of dub too.
Mother Banjo:http://www.myspace.com/motherbanjo and Art Vandalay:http://www.myspace.com/artvandalaytunes joined us this morning from 8-8:30, to celebrate her new CD and hear some live tunes. We had a good time. We also heard new music this morning from Caribou, Zap Mama, and I am in love with the teaser ep from Iron and Wine, Boy with a Coin. Maybe you already knew that.
