7/12 in a nutshell…
It’s week 2 of “Space Month” here on the RSST, and “Oooooh”, we hit the GotchaSKAvered twice this show… As “Ball of Fire”, the Echo 4-2 theme got the Skatalites treatment, and the Laurie Johnson -penned TV tune’s been leading a double life ever since! We heard the ‘Lites right after our opener, “Rocket Ship”, and the Bad Manners arrangement was covered live by a 2Tone tribute band called Big 10 in Hour 3. Also look (and listen) for a couple of selections by “Colonel” Ken Elliott, a prog synthmeister who worked with a reggae studio crew in the early ’70s as (the) Vulcans for their debut “Star Trek”, and then as “Col. Elliott & the Lunatics” for the follow-up “Interstellar Reggae Drive”. A couple of Carlos Malcolm cuts included one from his album “Space Flight”. Space Month was a perfect excuse for Sherwood to break out all 10:32 of Mutant Frogs’ “Cassini at Titan” uninterrupted, and a “Moon Ska” (label) 4@4 in Hour 3 anticipated the combined Echo Chamber/Rocket Ship “Lunar Lunacy” 2-night party on the 18th/19th. Oh, the build-up!

BUCKY’S BIRTHDAY
Bucky’s Dome by Katie Klocksin & Who was Guinea Pig B by Euan McAleece

Rocked it out a little this afternoon while flying solo. I can’t get enough of the new release by The Blasters. You’re gonna dig it.
Our “We Hope You’re Ready For Flo & Eddie” segment featured some surf and rock by The Turtles, Flo & Eddie, and Springsteen’s “Hungry Heart” (with Flo & Eddie providing backup vocals).

Tonight we had the great pleasure to debut the new Echo Chamber – Around the World In Dub – Vol. 1 & 2 album! That’s right. After months of tracking down some great music and asking artists to join the project, collecting and mastering the tunes, and some hours on artwork, the album was officially released on Bandcamp.com on July 5th. On the program tonight we played the entire Volume 1 of this compilation album, featuring: Bandulu Dub vs Nahuatl Sound System, Leah Rosier, Zion Train, Ras Amerlock, Dubmatix, Dubsalon, Citizen Sound, McPullish, Eating Betty, Madtone, Funk Dub Division, and Mutant Frogs. But the vol. 1 of the Echo Chamber album filled just the middle hour of the 3 hour show; there was so much more… This included the new Musical Road In Dub album from Najavibes (mixed by Mad Professor and Gussie P); the excellent “Temptation” album from Ras Sis Highness; Sir Oliver Skardy’s “Mambo Nero” single; “Delayrium” from Jah Acid Dub, and the Italian Dub Community Showcase – V.4.
