5/30/2007 Echo Chamber

 

Well...this was a special that I've been planning on revisiting for quite some time: A Fistful of Dub: A Dread Western Special. The Echo Chamber heads out to the wild, wild west... The two anchors of the show (and the two items that were the germ of the project) were Roots Control's fantastic Dread Western album, and the Morricone soundtrack to the spaghetti western The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly.
