The Smell on February 5
Here's a flyer for our next show at The Smell. We will be playing with such rad bandz like In Tents, Protect Me and Scape Native. There will also be an LA Zinefest booth and some other cool stuff to celebrate LA Zine Week!
“Dub offered the perfect score to the world’s deepening post-colonial dusk. Started, so legend goes, by Kingston's King Tubby in his studio on 18 Drumille Avenue, dub is basically this: a song sunk into the cavernous depths of a mixing board, stripped of its secure pop substances, and returned to the world as an electrified monster or vampire. (It's no accident that vampires appear on the covers of numerous dub LPs.) With dub, what was once flesh and bone is transformed into vague melodies that suddenly appear and vanish, moans that rise and recede, and bass lines that move through the echo-haze like phantoms in a haunted house.Dub is the "ghost dimension" of the real pop song; there is no body in dub, just a flickering afterimage of what was once a body.” (Charles Mudede)
