Birth of ECHO: Eskimo [Nunivak Island] lore tells of a cormorant
hunter who followed some cormorants into an opening in a cliff and
found himself stuck in a cave. The cormorants tortured the man by
turning into anus-drilling little men and then escaping through a
small opening where the hunter got stuck. His brother came looking
for him, calling out his name. The stuck brother responded with
exactly the same words. Every word and sentence was mimicked
precisely. They say this is what makes the echoes among the rocky
cliffs. And the second brother was so haunted by the echoes and
saddened by his brother's disappearance that he never came to hunt
among the rocky cliffs again. And so the moral of the story is
something like "May all errors take their places and make very little
noise doing it!" [a]

[a] A summation of the longer story by Hans Himmelheber, Where The
Echo Began: And Other Oral Traditions from Southwest Alaska,
University of Alaska Press, Fairbanks, 1999.
 "Mossman vs The World Bank" on Dispensation <www.dublounge.net>
is earnest screw-loose-rattling-in-my-brain-pan dub out of Canada. It
is some of the heaviest progressive yet root beat based dub around
[Twlilight Circus notwithstanding]. Mighty joyous beats, dub that
goes to the core. One of this year's faves. Plus Mossman connects dub
to insurrection: "Reggae music is the revolution of the future."
Peter Tosh. You got to trust earnestness. As mossman writes: In a
time where the World Bank and WTO continue to expand and where
corporatist agenda and greed have appropriated the globalization of
world trade and culture, Jamaica's revolutionary contribution to the
planet continues to resist Babylon's institutions." And I just got
the new one in "Mossman vs. Mr. Tsunami" it kills roaches dead! Get
 "Trippy Notes for Bass" on On-U Sound. Great ethereal psych-out blues.
 "Wreck This Mess: Remission 2" on Noise Museum is the natural
prosthetic extension of On-U and what better 1-2-3 punch than 3 of
the best dub crews around back to back on this compilation. Spectre
being the deep disturbed nihilistic deep Brooklyn crew. There ain't
much upbeat about Brooklyn and it evident with all Crooklyn Dub
stuff. Spectre being the dingiest and best.
 "Etherealites Dub Syndicate" on Dubmission. The mysterious 45
single from Dubmission via some major retailoring. Great stuff.
 This is the mysterious single that is pure Creation Rebel gone
global and omniverously sonic. Where did this come from? It mixes and
veers and lists all over the place sampling everything from Klemzer
to Eastern European chant. Hard, heavy, and overloads of sampling
beat-noid pleasure. The envelope came mysteriously through a third
party, the envelope marked Jamaica, NY, and Amsterdam! Label reads
"Peer Dub/Sick [2001 Remix] - Ariadne Sheermonde." That's it. Anybody
with leads please
 "Crooked: The Movie & the Soundtrack", the soundtrack to a film
that lets you see Brooklyn in all the soul-sucking [lack of] light.
It's a gulag in a hurricane, it's a place where Word sound is HQ'd
and this post-existential heavy stuff is what comes out. If you need
to dredge a lake for bodies, look them up. With the better end of
bunted ra, Sensational, like Barry White in a collapsing project
hi-rise. The whole disc sounds like a submarine in muddy water,
guided by captain Sun Ra.
 "Chainstore Massacre" <onusonund.co.uk> is the long-awaited [it
was right on time in Amsterdam!] un-pay-it-all-back, next generation
On-U dub and it is killer for cuts 1-6, absolutely cutting edge,
serrated jack hammer really nice: one foot in the door of twilight
zone, one foot in the door of Studio One and lots of dynamite in the
crotch. BUT, it gets decidedly more uneven - some real potholes! -
along the back road home. But, I am not complaining. And actually the
Shadon has caught on. The Sinead vs Skip cut seems forced, and
doesn't turn the corner. Jr. Delgado: voice excellent, passionate...
i take it back what i sed earlier. Congrats to Salmonella! New
Zealand dub at its earnest and best in remix. Little Roy is ok.
Ghetto Priest sounds fine. Dub Syndicate could do with AS's help!
Their non-AS discs are pedantic, humorless, flat. They need the mad
twist of the knobs to keep the rasta rhetoric in ironic persepctive.
Mutant Hi Fi goes right back to the essential Tackhead, Creation
Rebel, Singers & Players stuff I really like. Mark Stewart remains
the soundtrack of Guy Debord's spleen.
 "King Size Dub Volume 1" Echo Beach <www.echobeach.de> keeping
dub alive from the German front. One of the mainstays of post On-U
loyalty. Zion Train: trip dub for the dance hungry.
 "Do Anything / Plastic World" excellent 12-inch, particularly the
non-vocal dub from the people at BSI <www.bsi-records.com>.
 "Dub Xperience Dread Operators" on On-U/Cleopatra, 1996. Some
great archival material.
 "The Inspirational Sounds of Jah Works" on UE
<http://wobblyweb.com/ue> is a very beautiful disc of subtle beats
and harmonies. Heavy dub and lilting melodies, precious and magical.
A great blend of Jamaican dub studio fiddling and UK new tech. Jah
Works = Rej Forte, has come up with a very nice intuitive touch to
match old with new. And the deep goes spatial, the roots go ecstatic.
It gets better with repeated listenings.
 "In Dread / 4 Pieces of Heart at 33RPM" on On-U Sound. 12-inch.
Some interesting gestures here but after her killer solo album, this
12-inch was a bit of disappointment, she is going a bit off the Edith
Piaf, chanteuse side. It is almost too earnestly vamping and camping.
But make no mistake, I consider her one of the most underrated female
 "Pal Judy" on On-U/ROIR [1982/1990]. Get it even though it
doesn't exist. For an interview I did with madam Nylon:
 "Sean-Nos Nua" on Hummingbird, produced by Adrian Sherwood. God,
this is great. I mean, just incredibly gut-wrenching vocals. In the
pop world her and Bjork beat any other female vocalist. Period. And
A. Sherwood's production is so respectful, there but not,
unobtrusive, evident, like gossamer. It makes me really really
respect AS when he can keep back and just KNOW what someone like
O'Connor needs! Some great samples - one of a billiard table and the
 "Heavyweight 2" on Blood & Fire. On this song by one of
Sherwood's heroes, you can almost feel the senseless shooting, the
proliferation of firearms, smuggled in by the CIA in the 70s to
destabilize the Socialist government. This agitation on the part of
the CIA led to many deaths, and an assassination attempt on Bob
Marley, the downfall of Manley's government and a country that has
ghetto (GET-o) noun
1. Part of a city, typically densely populated and run-down, inhabited
by members of an ethnic group or a minority, for social, economic
or legal reasons.
2. A situation or environment characterized by isolation, inferior status,
bias, restriction, etc.
[From a word for a foundry, to the name of an island, to the place where Jews
were forced to live, to its current sense, the word ghetto is a fascinating
example of how words come to mean something entirely different as they travel
through time. The word originated from Latin jacere (to throw), the root of
words such as project, inject, adjective, jet. Venetian getto is the word for
a foundry for artillery. As the site of such a foundry, a Venetian island was
named Getto. Later when Jews were forced to live there because of persecution,
the word became synonymous with cramped quarters, populated by isolated
2nd Radio 100 benefit festival
The Radio 100 Sterrengala
Moved to the 16th of February.
Due to some unforseen problems and a very tight time-schedule we
decided to change the benefit festival to another date; Feb. the 16th
2003. This is causing us a lot of work again but it also means that
the festival will be much better organized than when we would have
let it happen in December and also we'll have more time to put
together a good program. Beside this the 16th of February is on a
Sunday and not a Monday as we were planning it in December first.
We've asked all the artists that were going to perform in December if
they are willing to perform on the new date as well but most likely
the program will change.

SEX TETE, a review of the spoken word works of Roberto ValenzaÉ
"For a more international, commercial feel, try 3am Magazine. . . .
The cosmopolitan, rive gauche quality of the site is wonderfully
obvious. From 'cutting edge short fiction' to political satire and
music reviews, 3am is a dream publication for the young, literary and
clued-up, and it counter-balances nicely the London/New York
publishing behemoth." o Bill Broun, The Times (Monday April 30 2001).
"Cool ezine 3am is worth taking a look at for a dip into the edgier
waters of literature on the net." o Michelle Pauli, The Guardian
