Kids! Let's all take a moment and reflect on the grebo scene. This was an underrated and obscure English genre that fell under the post punk radar because Seattle sound and Nirvana were hitting at the time. The bands and fans went more electro and folded into the rave scene. But I found a good deal of angst, intelligence and talent in it at the time as a skate rat, so it's worth a second look in my book ( if not revival).
On reflection this was also during the resurgence of acid in the suburbs along with Industrial music like Revolting Cocks, Ministry etc.. Shortly after synthetic drugs Extacy , Nitrous, MMC became popular and the music went fully electronic. While creative in it's own way,it lost that punk anti authoritarian edge in my opinion. The Prodigy and Chemical Brothers among others were very heavily influenced and made a type of resurgence of it though.
LOL I'm wasted & never went to college, I should write for Rolling Stone. Too bad print media is a dinosaur stuck in a tar pit.
More Slayer...now for the reality of everyday life. "Not suitable" for people that are not perceptive of their surroundings...
This is a tribute to all who shed their shackles and take life into their own hands. This is a call to all who have found themselves enslaved...
Greetings. maggots! It's been a long time. Allow me to reassert myself. I know this is cheesey. But this cheese speaks for a lot of us. This is a tender shout-out to all of those who love to be entertained. This band's early cheese is mother's milk to millions, even though they were voted the worst band by Mtv a few times. I can only liken this music to a good Conan novel. Feel free to enjoy. I know I do.
made an appearance the other day on my reaver and was immediately befuddled by my quickslot bars. Tried to map to Grothrum and ended up at GTA. Anyway, when i'm not harrassing dastardly freeps by hitting all the wrong buttons, i'm jammin, u know u love this sh*t....
Dr. John - Locked down (da funk will ooze from every orifice at the 8 sec mark)
Journey - Any way u want it

Alan Lomax's Massive Archive Goes Online
Alan did some incredible research in the 1930s and there's some amazing down to earth music there. Take a look, skim it, you'll never hear this stuff on the pop radio.
Awesome song Koo-yon! The Last Waltz is one of my favorites. This music is before my time, but it's timeless. Such can be said about all good music. Here are my 3 favorites from this DVD. Enjoy, maggots!
Greetings, maggots! Downing some brews and grilling a bird all day has allowed me to figure out my favorite SRV tunes. These examples are live renditions. I like the studio stuff, but hearing it live sends a clear message of what the artist is feeling at the time. Also you get to see, visually, just how awesome this guy is at his trade. The first link is a double feature...
Sticking with the Stones, I find that this song, which is old to me, has staying power. How many jacked-up mothers are out there that this song pertains to? Jacked is jacked no matter your generation. Enjoy!
Back to metal, now. This band hovers on the brink of superstardom. For some reason they never crossed the line for me. Here are 3 songs from them that would win me over if I had a hand in their success. Enjoy!
Do you guys ever watch that show "The First 48"? I do with a passion. I don't know why, but I get transfixed to the tv whenever there is a murder/mystery yet to be solved. I have a sense of morbid fascination concerning the inner workings within the minds of killers. I have yet to view a show on tv that can even come close to these 3 Slayer songs. They are only the messengers of reality. Disturbing as it is, please try to encapsulate yourself within the lyrics. Then you might have a small understanding of madness. Do not blame the messenger.
Killer ads, Lobato. I especially liked the one from 5 Finger Death Punch. They remind me a lot of Pantera. Good stuff. I'm going to switch it up a bit as I realized I have left out a significant amount of my favorite R&B toons. lol my ipod is crazy. I'll hear metal, hiphop, classical, R&B and blues all within 30 minutes. There is so much R&B that I love it will take a while to come up with a list of my favorites. I will start with a few songs off of the same album by Remy Shand. Good stuff.
Greetings, maggots! I wish to hear some blues. This guy is awesome, but he chose the worst possible time to release his albums. I'm talking about Robin Trower. If SRV was not hot at this time it would be a totally different story. Here's a few of my favorite picks. Enjoy, maggots!
I don't know about you guys, but in my house we listened to some great music. My parents would always have some cool old #%^$ playing at night. Come to find out, most of this music was later used in some of my favorite films about the mafia. It wasn't until I grew up that I understood most of these tunes, and their significance. I will list some of my favorites, now. There are many more floating around in my head from my childhood, but I have no clue what the names of them are let alone who the artists would be. You'll never see them clowns on American Idol even scratch the surface on the talent it takes to sound like this.
