ON THE RECORD

Dub Vulture

The eclectic rhythm riders of Dub Vulture reversed the usual pattern of releasing music then remixing it last year, when they let legendary dub progenitor The Scientist craft the Snarl! EP out of songs that hadn’t previously been recorded. Now, the “original” mixes are turning up on Brother, Can You Spare a Gun?, the band’s second full-length, pairing Snarl!’s five songs with a half-dozen new ones to carve an engaging trip through the hazy landscape of reggae, rock and dub.
On the eve of the album’s release, head Vulture Tim Balash took some time to answer questions about Brother, Can You Spare a Gun?’s creation process, which spans more than two decades. Sort of.

BROTHER CAN YOU SPARE A GUN CD RELEASE SHOW!

Dub Vulture CD release show at New City Legion July 20th.  Also on the bill is Winnipeg’s Flying Fox and the Hunter Gatherers as well as Doug Hoyer and Meagan Loves.  A mere $8 at the door!
