    yes its very good. i was actually surprised how good it really is. its a classic IMO, he just does it way different than everyone else.

    I never really have followed twista all that much but you have to respect his flow.
    yea he is one of the fastest ever

    Also, I was a huge Bone fan growing up... who wasn't? I actually got to work security for their concert last year in a town right by Springfield Missouri. There wasn't a ton of people as their name has cooled off a lot since 96'97, but it was still sweet. I got to be backstage security so I got to see Krazy, and most of the bone members but that one dip$hit member wasn't there... I want to say buzy bone or whatever. Anyways, I was jamming to thuggish ruggish bone and all the old classics. It took me through my teenage years for sure but then only seeing like 200 fans made me feel pretty bad that they had to slum it out in a concert like that. I think they have just about run their course in music as much as I hate to say it. They were all good guys as were most of the Mo Thugs family too. Just thought you might want to hear that story.
    u worked security? i guess there wasnt much action cuz they have cooled off. they still got a good fan base just not as big as it was. i think there starting to get some back cuz they are off there old record label and shopping around for a big deal. Krayzie and Layzie are on a bunch of peoples albums, most notably Krayzie is on Lil Johns new album and Dead Prez's.
    it prolly was bizzy who wasnt there, he has been in and out of the group since crossroads.
    Mo Thugs have lost it too. they had a good crew at first then fell off alot. I hear they do put on a decent show tho.

    How were they backstage?

      I wanted to see Du when the Warehouse tour came around my area, but a wicked snowstorm kept me fromt he four hour drive. I should've braved it but thought I'd catch them next time. Huge mistake.....that was a terrible year IMO..Husker Du, Black Flag & Dead Kennedys all folding up the tent at roughly the same time...there were some long months there before The Pixies finally showed up.
      That sucks... yea, I had a similar story with Black Flag. Always was a huge fan, and they came to St. Louis... I want to say it was like 86, on the Loose Nut tour. (Which is another album that I love, but most Flag fans don't)
      I had a gig with my own band that night, and blew off the Flag show.. just assuming that I'd get another chance to see them. They never came back.

      Never saw the DKs. They didn't come through STL much. I did go bowling with Jello in San Francisco, though. lol! (A record label my band was on bowled against Alternative Tentacles)

        Yeah, I wasn't that big on "Loose Nut" myself...seemed that the live versions of that stuff on "Who's Got The 10 1/2?" had a bit more life to them. (just my opinion though, no big thing).

        You bowled with Jello?? I bet that was something else...remember when he was running for the Green Party nomination in 2000? Imagine that guy in a debate

            Hogan,

            Yea... Loose Nut is very dreary/droney/studio sounding. I can see why a lot of Flag fans didn't dig it. It was a different direction. Just something about the chance they took with it that I liked. Almost had a metal edge to it... but kind of a druggy, grey feeling as well.

            lol! Yea, I remember when Jello ran for the Green Party. He actually ran for mayor of San Francisco back in the day, too. (before I lived there, though) I'm surprised the kooks up there didn't elect him. Of course, he couldn't have done much worse than what we had up there.

              I'm not so sure it had to do with production....the only reason I say that is because In My Head had the same type of sound but the material seemed to be much more animated with that one....not as draggy. I'm not saying I didn't dig Nut at all, it's just my least fave recording of theirs (save for maybe Live '84 or The Process Of Weeding Out EP...but it's a tough call IMO). I'll never forget the looks a few of those tracks got when played for those unaware of the Flag
              I had a friend who did a radio show at the college I went to and he used to play the opening part of Madonna's extended mix of "Dress You Up In My Love" and while it was going, read Hank's "Madonna" poem over it in a totally deadpan voice...when he ws finished reading it, he'd cut to the Flag's "Crazy Girl" immediately.... It was pretty cool IMO and always generated a few calls to the station.

              lol! Yea, I remember when Jello ran for the Green Party. He actually ran for mayor of San Francisco back in the day, too. (before I lived there, though) I'm surprised the kooks up there didn't elect him. Of course, he couldn't have done much worse than what we had up there.
              Yeah, I read about his Mayoral run...he promised to make all the businessmen wear clown suits or something like that...he actually came in 4th or 3rd I think...not sure of that though, since it was a long time ago that I read that.

              I wonder if Maximum Rock- N - Roll still does a radio show...I seen that fanzine the other day and almost picked it up...I have a ton of those things laying around dating back to the early '80's but haven't bought one in years...I wonder what it's like now....did you ever check that out?

                    Must be the bouncy sax in it eh?

                    The disc has become legendary over the years....."Sound System" is my personal anthem and fave from it. "Unity" especially is absolutely breathtaking in it's power...the whole thing is an early touchstone for the ska-punk movement and is essential to any modern music collection IMO.

                    I wish they were still around but that's life....I can settle for Rancid with no problem at all.

                      Yeah...I liked Tim Armstrong more with Op Ivy rather than Rancid....Atleast beyond their 1st 2-3 albums

                        Rancid has never matched Ivy material wise....still Rancid is great stuff and is perferrable to say Less Than Jake (Pezcore being the lone exception there IMO.)

                        Have you ever checked out The Pietasters Champ? They're more ska than punk but remain one of my fave acts of all time and the ultimate party/drinking band....I'd recommend any of their releases.

                          Ever heard of blindside?

                          Doubt it, they're from Sweden. A great hardcore band. Actually since signing with electrica, they have been more "mainstream" hardcore... they aint no puss Linkin Park or Trapt though. Friend of mine compaired them to the Deftones, but I dont know...

                          I dont know if you dig hardcore, but I LOVE Blindside.

                                Pietasters rock.

                                My favorite ska band will alway be Five Iron Frenzy though, just because they are from Denver and they have some real lyrics, as in really though provoking.
