In honor of my father who recently passed away I brought in some of his long playing records to feature some favorite singers from a previous era. Still great music from the archives of America. I also sent out some tributes to other recently deceased friends, including a set of musical politic-poetry from indigenous activist recently deceased, John Trudell.
In this week’s Chamber, check out new choice cuts from dub legends Mad Professor & Lee Scratch Perry and up’n‘comers Gentleman’s Dub Club (they’ve got an EP and now a brand new full-length album under their belts), plus Bio Dread, The Mighty Ginsu, and more! We also unearth reggae goodies by the newly-late and already much-missed David Bowie — “Yassassin” and “Don’t Look Down.” Also dub and dubstep remixes of Bowie by Black Market and Chris Solon. Solon brings Lady Gaga to the David Bowie mash-up for “Let’s Just Dance.” And just in case anybody out there has yet to hear Manchester UK’s Baked A La Ska singing “Starman” (“Skaaaaaa-Maaaaaann!”), you’re in for a real treat! Of course, we like to think that’s true of any Echo Chamber, so lend us your ears… We’ll give ‘em back to you in good working order, we promise!
