10/29/2008 Echo Chamber

All the ghouls, goblins, and dreads gathered with Dr. Seaton, Dr. StrangeDub, and DJ Baby Swiss in the Echo Chamber of Horrors… The good doctors of DUB cooked up quite a dark treat for their annual Halloween show. The scene was set with the spine tingling creepiness of Raz Mesinai’s The Unspeakable album and soundbytes from the movies The Exorcist, Dracula, and Frankenstein, and from radio theater pieces such as The Black Cat based on the Poe poem. One centerpiece of the show was the release from Tino Corp. that fit the program perfectly: Tino’s Breaks Volume 6 – Hallowe’en Dub.

A little tiny bit of scary-themed music with Tino’s Hallowe’en Dub, local group The Very Idea!, and even a spooky-sounding track, Guardasecretos, from the new Cordero album, De Donde Eres. We heard new Ani DiFranco, Nikka Costa, and a lovely, down-tempo treatment of The Cure by The Postmarks.
