Quote" I had a recording project called Mitey Dog Meets Jah Flea with Gary Miles
of Dub Oven, along with Ahmed Sibdial-Sau and Stefen Vaughn Mason. I really
loved that project. Punk meets dub with some uniquely creative results.
Ahmed, if you read this, send me an e-mail! "

Isn’t the internet a fucking amazing resource!

I was almost not going to listen as it was described as “post-disco.” This track is more what I was thinking of as “no wave dance” like “Cavern” by Liquid Liquid or something by ESG. But synthpunk and punk-meets-dub works better, I’ll aver.

I know Pons! Worked along with him on Dinosaurs. This is cool.

If you want to play in the latest version of this, you can, at the Exploratorium in San Francisco! The exhibit is called “Recollections” and can be found in the West Gallery.
