Sub Oslo - 12” EP

Label:Two Ohm Hop

Released: 1998

Genre: Psych Dub

For years, the only “dub” i knew was dub techno.  I heard DJ Spooky’s dub tracks and some of the dudes from Berlin, but I did not get it and kinda hated it.  So i was in for a pleasant shock when Sub Oslo took the stage opening for Fugazi at a Ft. Worth show in 2002.  Sub was real dudes, laying down some dope grooves and jamming on them for like 20 minutes each.  That might have been a bit too long for a lot of the young, impulsive punk crowd, but there were two members of the band who really captivated us:  Paul Baker, video artist, and John Nuckels, who controlled the effects, mixing, & samples.

Sub Oslo are bigtime.  They’ve played shows with Burning Spear, June of ‘44, Mad Professor, & The Roots.  Their music was on the X-Box game “Brute Force,” which has an 8.1/10 user score on Metacritic, so… success.

Anyways, this debut record is iconic.  It’s 33:03 of laid-back, organic jams twisted through delays and cosmic effects pretty much sums up Denton in a wordless nutshell.  If we ever do another time capsule  or send a record crate into outer space so the aliens will know who we are & what we’re all about, this has got to go in it.

Comics bud Zac Gorman began putting together a Frasier zine a while ago. Progress is slow-going, but I talked to him and he said it would be cool to share my comic so here you go.

Amazing. Simply amazing.

Sometimes someone makes a comic that makes you just wanna give up forever because there’s no topping this omgggggggggggg

Now that David Letterman is retiring, perhaps he can score a role in the next Avengers movie.

Like many, I owe my sense of humor largely to Dave. I also am jealous he got to meet Wonder Man when he wore that red safari jacket.

I am the world’s worst person to answer this. Honestly, I really only need something to eat, lots to drink (because awkward) and a conversation-appropriate noise level.

Biggest Turnoffs: Hmmm… the whole Lolita thing kind of squicks me out. Wearing an outfit is one thing, but I can not abide baby talk or whatever. In fact, I’m not a big fan of role playing in general.

Top 5 comic books.

  1. Sandman
  2. The Invisibles
  3. Milk & Cheese: Dairy Products Gone Bad
  4. Nextwave: Agents of H.A.T.E.
  5. Beasts of Burden
