Seven Significant Singles #4 – The Dub Narcotic Disco Plates

For installment four, we jump forward about thirty years but rely on the same idea as Stax Records. K Records guru Calvin Johnson loves the idea of a house band like at Stax, and created a series of singles to be the demos. These singles blend dub/dancehall reggae (every single has a Riddim version), punk rock, funk, and the spaced out reverb of Calvin’s vocal delivery. Listen to seven of these discs: Dub Narcotic, F*ckSh!tUp, Booty Run, Bite, Industrial Breakdown, Shake-A-Puddin, and Wasted/Groove. Hear them all on my Mixcloud page:¬†
