Ive seen one of your shows sage and it was one of the best shows ive ever been to!

Why is it that most people on this post are focusing on modern punk, it wasnt invented in the early 90's you know.

I dislike 98% of new punk, if you wanna include groups like refused and the icarus line in new punk, well then i guessim guilty of liking some punk, but the real punk was back in the late 70's. The likes of the clash, buzzcocks, gang of four, etc were producing the best punk around and in my opinion, nothing has come close since.

Word!!!!!

You know it, dee.

Madlib put out a compilation of classic early Trojan Records material recently called 'Blunted in the Bomb Shelter', well worth picking up for anyone curious about that sound.


sandoval - haven't seen the movie, but I saw Henry doing a spoken word performance in Glasgow earlier this year and he was telling stories about it. He was over in the UK to film this completely bizarre TV show called Junkyard Challenge or something like that, where teams of assorted weirdos have half an hour to build something bizarre out of bits of old washing machines and burnt tyres. (Fortunately for the producers, large parts of the UK are littered with old washing machines and burnt tyres). Henry was hosting it. Weird.

I saw Jimmy Cliff live last month, still got loads of energy.

BTW, if you like The Harder They Come, you will love Rockers, and the soundtrack to that is utterly dope.

Rollins
Biafra
Sage

Now that's a lineup I would pay a lot to see. Besides, it would REALLY fuck with Tipper Gore's head.

I didn't read this entire thread. Couldn't have, to be sure. But this resonated with me in a big way:

Sage Francis wrote:
All I hear is the music. And some of it is so great to me. If I had such a naive view of hiphop than maybe I would love it just as much right now.


Very important little comment. Really, this is where it's all at. Just due to osmosis, I am able to go on at length about individual artists' label woes, legal troubles, and personal conflicts. I hate this. It has really affected how much I enjoy the music.

For my part, it is very sensible that Sage Francis would be on Epitaph. Makes a lot more sense than many other labels. As for the punk rock affiliation, I don't believe it. Yet.
