    I'm a Kiss Me, Kiss Me, Kiss Me guy. That album was very diverse and did a little of everything. I like when The Cure got funky and Smith played some tremendous rhythm guitar on that album. Simon Gallup is a hero among heroes with his bass tone.

    This has always been one of my favorite songs of all time and it always will be.

    This scene, time, and place, a 00:05:27 song might as well have been 00:17:00, lol.

    Two very interesting albums. The original Bad brains album came out in a cassette (not in an LP or even an 8 track which were around in those days) in 1981 or 82. The cassette was yellow and I use to have two of them and I’m pretty sure I still have at least one. The company that put it out were ROIR which was independent of the entire music business of the time. This wasn’t unusual for bunk bands of the time but the cassette as the only medium of use was. Without doubt it was one of the most pieces of sustained musical attack I had ever heard and an argument could easily be made that the Brains were the best American punk band ever.

    I have that Adolescents Lp. It was one of my favorites from the southern LA punk scene. A very very record almost a document of a time and place. It brings a couple other bands to mind from the same general area. Agent Orange the first surf punk band and Savage Republic.

    As per usual, you are the man, @eco's bones .

    That’s crazy, I just looked it up on Discogs real quick. Nothing but cassette until like 1989-1990. That yellow one is up on there $86.00 haha. It’s so cool though.

    Original pressing of the Adolescents LP up for $210.00.

    It helps being an old geezer to have some of this stuff. A lot of people I think don’t realize that between the British Invasion/Vietnam war era and the Ramones/Sex Pistols coming in 1975/76 was just about a dozen years. Such a breakout of musical artistic creativity followed by the do it yourself reaction of punk which pretty much democratized music in that anybody with the chutzpah could make something of a go of it. I see the origins of rap pretty much as another democratizing reaction. People will find ways to express themselves and if they’re not happy it can lead to the hurt feelings of other people who don’t like it.

    For quite a while I have to admit I was so belligerently punk or post punk rock that apart from the Velvet Underground and the Doors I wouldn’t listen to anything else. It’s still my go to but I’m open up to other things too. There’s reggae and Motown and rap that I like too. A friend of mine came around with his bass guitar a couple years ago and started playing the Temptations My Girl and that’s a killer riff.

    It’s different as well as we did LP’s and a lot of that IMO is just better and cooler. It fits into the collector’s mania also like sports cards and other collectibles. It was about the last thing I had in mind when I bought those records though.

    I wouldn't normally do this, and they don't really need the help, but since I saw some surf punk talk, here's probably the best song from my buddies band

    I’m the same way. I don’t wander very far outside of Punk/Post-Punk/Hardcore/Indie/Math rock/Post-Rock/Shoegaze/Dream Pop/Noise rock/Space rock/Krautrock. They all have essentially the same lineage/genealogy to me.

    Other than that, I do like some Rap/Hip-Hop (for many of the same reasons, like you said,) but the artists absolutely do not extend beyond the late-80s to mid-90s...Beastie Boys, Big L, Notorious BIG, Nas, etc.

    Also Classical...Mozart, Chopin, and Beethoven mostly. But is it even possible to not be a fan of Classical? :help:

    ROIR put out other cassettes and one was a compilation called New York Thrash and I have that too. The Beastie Boys had two songs on that and they were a hardcore band then—that was about a couple/three years maybe before You got to fight for your right to party.

    I think sometimes what happens when somebody or some genre makes it too big and too much money gets involved things get lost and ruined or at least for me.

    New Dinosaur Jr. came out this week. It was produced by Kurt Vile. Very good. I'll continue to soak it up.

    This Friday is Gojira for all you metal fans. Those dudes are pretty consistent.

    Mudvayne recently got back together. I was never a huge fan but I always loved Ryan Martinie as a bassist. He has this recent project called Soften The Glare I might check out.
