Every Spoil Is A Style is the 4th (and currently most recent) installment of the Dang In Dub series, dating back to 2008. Drawing from my own collection of roots 45s, this was another excursion in live dubbing, with my "dub rig" getting tweaked yet further to allow me to mimic the live dub style of Tubby et al back in the 70s. Boastful as it may sound, I'm really proud of some of the dubs on here; whilst all were done 100% live, they were often the product of a few attempts and the ones that made the final cut were those that turned out best. The two Linval Thompson tracks - "Black Princess Lady" and "Tell Me" remain favourites for me, the latter being my own dub splicing into the version that is on the b-side of the 45. Amazing songs!
Doubtless more Dang In Dubs will come. Watch this space.
