On this edition of the FFFoxy Podcast, we spoke with Chris Jacques whom runs the Prairie Fire Tapes and Dub Ditch Picnic labels out of Winnipeg, Manitoba, our good neighbors to the north in Canada. Starting in 2010, these labels combined have released a wide spectrum of music, with Prairie Fire dealing in more noise and drone-based works and Dub Ditch Picnic documenting all sorts of fringe/underground sounds. As their website reads: “We like basement psych, punk rock, no wave, kraut jams, long luscious drone and, of course, Dub”.

We asked Chris to provide some more background on the labels and, mark this as a first for the show, we even discussed Canadian Black Metal at length. Throughout the rest of the show, we tried to cover as much musical ground as possible to paint a decent overview of both label's catalogs.
