Dub Side Of The Moon - Easy Star Allstars

Easy Star

Pink Floyd’s ‘Dark Side Of The Moon’ represents a crowning achievement in modern music. It’s still used by audiophiles today, as a reference for sonic excellence, even though it was recorded back in 1971! Recently, a group of reggae’s most adventurous players took on the challenge of recreating this classic album in the ‘one drop’ style. Easy Star Records Vice President, Lem Oppenheimer dared to imagine; “What if Dark Side Of The Moon wasn’t created at Abbey Road Studios in London and mixed by Alan Parsons? What if it had been made in Kingston, Jamaica by the dub scientists of the day? The result is ‘Dub Side Of The Moon’ a faithful if not trippier version of rock’s most enduring concept album. The show has since toured all over the continental United States, playing in New Orleans only two days before Katrina devastated the city. The album even contains instructions on how to synch up the audio with The Wizard Of Oz, a trick enjoyed by prog rock heads everywhere. Speaking of heads, their next project will be called ‘RadioDread’, a reggae version of Radiohead’s OK Computer
