Another show filled with a whole lot great new music. Starting things out with a Natural Dub Cluster track from the new Italian Dub Community – Showcase Vol. 3 compilation. Followed this up Secret Archives of the Vatican’s heavy new Barbary Lion and the self-titled release by See-I (on Fort Knox). More great new music from Copia Doble Systema, Kevin Kinsella, Don Corleon, Bandulu Dub, Longman, and more. The Swiss set kicked off in high style by debuting some fresh new Tokyo Jihen (Dai Hakken’s leadoff track), and mixing that into a dancehall goodie from Ari Up’s swan song Slits release Trapped Animal. Old-schoolers Jamaica Super Dub, Jackie Mittoo and Adrian Sherwood helped round out hour 3 in fine style.
We also talk with Dean Bakopoulos, author of My American Unhappiness. A winner of both NEA and Guggenheim fellowships, he is also the author of Please Don’t Come Back from the Moon. My American Unhappiness is his second novel.
