Tonight as part of the KFAI fall pledge drive we revisited a theme we have not done in awhile: A Fistful of Dub: A Dread Western Special. The Echo Chamber headed out to the wild, wild west! The anchors of the show (and the two items that were the germ of the project) were Roots Control’s fantastic Dread Western album (on Wordsound) and the Ennio Morricone soundtrack to the spaghetti western movie The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly. Also fitting right in is the Trojan Records “western reggae” compilation “The Big Gundown”. More great stuff, including: the excellent new “Return of Gringo” album from Prince Fatty meets the Mutant Hi-Fi; Vincenzo Cipollone (“Far West” album); Space Monkeys vs. Gorillaz (“Clint Eastwood”); Clint Eastwood & General Saint; Dub Spencer & Trance Hill (covering the Clash’s “Magnificent Seven”); Guvna (with “Fistful of Dub”); Tommy McCook & the Skatalites; Boomski (with “Bad Horsie” from the Dubbhism album “She Was A Rough Rider”); Lloyd Charmers; The Specials; Pale Rider; “Double Barrel”, both the original from Dave & Ansel Collins, plus Bad Manners’ cover; and so much more…including tons of soundbytes from the movie “The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly”. Heck we even included the main title music from the classic Blazing Saddles movie from Mel Brooks!
