This amazing video will make you want to work out—-an hour long set with Dub Narcotic Sound System live!  This was shot by our very own Sarah Cass in her hometown of Grand Junction, CO at a house show back in 2001, just a teenage fan way back when.

Hornet Leg live on KUCI-FM, Irvine, California, August 5, 2007.

Spider & The Webs - It’s Lovely Weather for Ducks

It’s a beautiful sunny day today, and from my window in the K office I can see nothing but blue blue sky.  This is a rare thing in Olympia, and we’re celebrating with snacks—-kettle corn, cookies, black tea (we always have a pot of black tea somewhere around here) & wonderful, old Spider & The Webs!  In lieu of actual cake (appropriate food for such a wonderful day as this) let us all imagine we are eating this K record cake together.  Mmmmm…you can have the big piece.

"Cowboy Coffee (Version)" by Dub Narcotic Sound System (and remixed by the infamous Selector Dub Narcotic) is a tightened-up dubophonic groove that delivers the dreamscape.  An unsafe mix of radioactive garage soul sound sweeping the mining towns of the west; the subterranean dance floors of the east will recoil in anticipation. Drop the needle, smash the record.
