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).
Today we listened to music in honor of the Republican National Convention. Music began with various tunes from Afghanistan including music of the Pashai (Le Chante du Monde), songs from the Shams Ensemble (Harmonia Mundi), Tribal music (Traditional Crossroads). This was followed by music from Iraq, including rythmic Muqams (Unesco), Rashid al-Qundarji (Al Sur), Amir El Saffir (own label), Rahim Alhaj (Smithsonian). This was followed by music from Iran, including music from Boushehr (Mahoor), Dutar music from Khorassan (Ocora), music from the Bakhtiari (Cassette), and music from Mazandaran (Mahoor).
We also heard songs from Dick Gaughan (Appleseed), Andy Irvine (Appleseed), and the Clash (Epic)
