Dubwise Vibrations

Can’t wait to get my hands on these gems! They’re Delroy Wilson’s Dub Plate Style and King Tubby and the Dynamites Sound System International. The former is out, the latter isn’t. Super-obscure slabs o’ wax that definitely won’t disappoint. I don’t plan on purchasing the albums, but if you purchase the Tubby pressing from Pressure…

In The Loop

The US President and UK Prime Minister fancy a war. But not everyone agrees that war is a good thing. The US General doesn’t think so and neither does the British Secretary of State for International Development, Simon Foster. But, after Simon accidentally backs military action on TV, he suddenly has a lot of friends…
