THE EMERGENCY DUB SYSTEM BRINGS YOU THE DUB RESCUE ACT

In their second album, The Dub Rescue Act, The Emergency Dub System pulls together scraps from the vast Ear Candle archives and the heroes and villains of the media universe to refashion into a hypnotic, impressionistic portrait of the first half of 2021. An old horror reaches its climax in the world’s dumbest failed coup, and an affable new leader looks out at the damage done and the deliberate obstacles thrown up and shouts the only words that make sense: COME ON, MAN! 

“We have gone through a terrible year, and hopefully we’re gonna see some better times.”

Two new releases on our label: The Emergency Dub System and the Crass Remix Project

Ear Candle Productions have not been idle during this shelter-in-place era. We have two new albums by two new artists on our roster!

Dub Against Fascism by The Emergency Dub System

The Emergency Dub System has responded to the crises of 2020 with special mixes of tracks originally created by The Granite Countertops, The Experimental Bunnies, and Dr. Spaceman. Shelter in dub and keep on dubbing against fascism!

Refeeding Syndrome: Ear Candle Productions Remixes Crass

We at Ear Candle Productions have accepted the Crass Challenge. The former members of the seminal anarchist punk band Crass and the label One Little Indian have made the original multitrack recordings of their debut album from 1978, The Feeding Of The 5000, available for remixing. 

In accordance with Crass’s firm, uncompromising principles (Note: this is a band that has rhymed “Clash” with “cash” more than once), we have consulted with Crass and the One Little Indian label and agreed to offer this reimagining of their rough, raging anarcho-punk vision for free. (Donations accepted.)

Ear Candle Productions on Bandcamp

Ear Candle Productions now has a Bandcamp presence! We love Bandcamp and support and patronize our friends there, so it makes sense to bring our three active artists into the fold. Bandcamp has, over a scant few years, grown into a vast and intricate community of independent artists as well as a gorgeous platform where curious listeners can sample an artist’s wares and buy individual tunes or whole albums on the spot.

You can find our Bandcamp pages on the menu to the right, or go here for The Granite Countertops:
