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 “Dracula”, “Frankenstein”, and “Young Frankenstein”, and from radio theater pieces including the “Fugue in C Minor” featuring Vincent Price. With track titles like “Wicked Insane Evil Dub”, “Digging a Watery Grave”, “Ghost Town”, “Vampires and Informers”,“Dub House of Horrors”, “Catch Vampire Dub”, “Are You Monster?”, “Grave Robbers from Outer Space”, “Evildoers Stamp’d Out in Dub”, and “Iron Devil”, and with artists like Monster X, Omars Attacks, and Mad Professor, you gotta believe it was the night of the living Dread…in the Echo Chamber of Horrors.
A recent arrival, Abdelkader Hamouchi, speaks of his life in Morocco. A Berber by birth, he speaks of this separate ethnic group’s language and culture. The Berbers, or the Amidir (Free Men), as they call themselves, were in Morocco centuries before the Arabic-speaking colonizers arrived.
He is now in the USA looking for work and observing life here.
