Survival of the Chillest

As occupied with spirits as with sounds, Heavyweight Dub Champion has mass appeal.

With its California mission complete, the collective returned home ready to mount a full-on dub offensive; Survival Guide for the End of Time was released in May, and Heavyweight has played more and more live shows. The band recently completed a successful tour of the Pacific Northwest and is broadening plans for Champion Nation Recordings, its label. Weary of corporate control over its product, for the time being Heavyweight Dub Champion has chosen to work only with a few like-minded independent retail outlets and art collectives in getting its propaganda to the public.

"We're very particular who sells our product for us, because we don't want to help corporations further themselves with our music if their goals aren't at least sympathetic to ours," says Resurrector. The group will pursue a more aggressive national campaign in November via the Web site (championnationnet.com), which it plans to use to build underground distribution networks.

All you need is dub: Heavyweight Dub Champion will survive.
All you need is dub: Heavyweight Dub Champion will survive.
All you need is dub: Heavyweight Dub Champion will survive.
All you need is dub: Heavyweight Dub Champion will survive.

Until then, Resurrector and his mates are hoping their story mirrors that of the Last Champion, who triumphs and elevates, saving the world and ultimately himself.
