ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Every Spoil a Dub is all about more of everything good about Dub: More bass, more guitar, more drum, more dramatic mind-bending mixing and sound manipulation. This time around Eating Betty offers a heavier, more analogue sound coupled with more, yes more real playing - more focus on the human factor... This is not to be missed...turn it up and let the walls crumble and the oppressors tumble...

In the January 2009 issue of Wire magazine http://www.thewire.co.uk/ Steve Barker, the respected Dub music expert wrote:
"...in search of that perfect synthesis of Lee Perry and King Tubby meeting again in the studio five years after Blackboard Jungle in Dub his downtown New York based ACEtone studio set up is dedicated to analogue confessions dubstyle, real instrumentation and samples confined to vocal ghosts. The rhythms on the first four dubs here all have that pre-Black Ark late-Upsetters feel, but the mix is swooning with efx, especially the appearance of Marcus Garvey on opener "Disunity Dub" and the refreshing acoustic guitars on "Cyaan get no dub"; then by the time the title track appears things start to get more weirder and the mixing more abstract with the steps back through the tune difficult to trace, fierce overlapping percussion and giant reverbed rimshots taking the tune out. Overall an excellent third album, but the top track is definitely "New New Dub" sounding like a ouija board studio collaboration with Joe Meek, opening with an irresistible, but rarely used, mix of piano and organ keys separating out after the intro but continuing to vamp and submitting to dub efx through the rhythm..."

Longtime loyal fan and Dub afficionado Cornelius says:
"I've consumed all tracks from Every Spoil a Dub. Assessment.....SUPERIOR!!"

Dr. StrangeDub (KFAI-FM)

Some Diaphragm Rocking, Heavy, Dread Dub
Wow...what can you say. With the release of the 3rd Eating Betty album "Every Spoil A Dub" the bar
has been raised again. Once again the sound is heavy-bottom dub with some rootical flavors,
but in tradition of Tubby, Perry, Scientist and others, its the "chemist's" unique studio
touch which makes this release standout. All the requisite elements of real good dub are here: the
heavy (sometimes sub-sonic) basslines; an authentic reggae guitar sound; a variety of modern and old-school keyboards; real drums and other percussion; and some rasta-connections (like the soundbytes from Marcus Garvey on the opening track "Disunity Dub" and other vocal bits); and plenty of echo, reverb, and other staple dub effects. Make no doubt about it: this is some diaphragm rocking, heavy, dread dub. And yet there are a number of subtleties revealed in the many layers of sound. Like the often used, but still fitting analogy, it's like peeling the layers of an onion. There is not a single disappointing dub here... So it's hard to pick favorites. The guitar on "Cyaan Get No Dub" has a real nice classic Spanish sound. The title track swirls through an echo chamber with faint disconnected voices emanating from distant corners. It's a dub that really demonstrates this combination of dungeon-like heaviness and subtle, meditative elements as I mentioned previously.
"Love and Justice Dub" has a real catchy stuttering beat that just makes you want to tap your feet, with some dread chanting "Love" and "Justice". Of course if you're like me and one of your favorite things is snatches of feminine words and whispers over a choice dub, then "Live This Dub" is for you. Likewise, "Be Strong" features bits of female vocals and a heavy echo-laden beat. (My only recommended change
for the album would be that it also included the incredible original vocal version of this song, entitled "Innocence Matters" and chronicling the story of Troy Davis.) But my favorite track of them all is "New New Dub". This is one of those dubs that chugs along nicely, taking your mind tranquilly to another realm, and then a sudden w-a-a-a-h comes through one ear and out the other and you are dropped back into to reality. Only to be induced into another hypnotic state... This is definitely modern dub at its creative best.
