Tonight the doctors of dub returned to the twangy, camp sounds of the Dub Club Tiki Bar…as we pulled out all the fresh leftovers for part 2 of our Echo Beach end-of-summer special. More surf guitar, funky organs, James Bond, Ken Nordine, and Brazilian beats too. Ahh…but this week we mashed in a lot more dub as well…including part 1 of a fantastic mix from Tokyo Tower (put together specifically for our pal Terry C. at Echo Beach on WLUW).
Bigbody Applehead is a group of six relatively young musicians who stopped by to talk about their music and play some examples. I also played music by Gil Scott-Heron, Johnny Mercer, Sahib Shihab, and new musci from Bill Cantrell and more….
