Before I even started on this years mix I said to myself, I'm not going to let the lack of response here on Blogger be an issue... I'm going to keep my mouth shut and continue pushing forward, ignoring the urge to complain or any desire to institute the usual "woe is me" policy - but 6 days without a comment?! Goddamn, it has to be a new record! Come on people, drop me a note and keep me motivated here!
But that's enough about that... today's track is "Dub in Blood" by Skin, Flesh & Bones and it comes from the album also entitled Dub In Blood on the Sunshot label and released some time in the 1970s. A pretty wicked-ass dub track and one that I have embellished with some audio from Dracula Prince of Darkness, one of my favorite Hammer Dracula films. I don't know why but it seems like the scenes in the Dracula movie where the main characters are conspiring to destroy the evil bloodsucker and or learning the ways of a vampire, work best mixed in with the music. One reason may be the fact that Christopher Lee spoke very little in most of the Dracula films and the other may be reggae's longstanding fight against injustice and combatting the evils in the world intent on keeping people in oppression, poverty and hunger, works well when it comes to fighting vampires too. Or maybe... just maybe... I may be over-thinking all this! See you tomorrow!
