I don't care what any of you say, Mezzanine is the best. If any of you have the box set, well then we can argue. But I have everything they have come out with. And I still say Mezzanine is the best yet. So, ptthh.

>Do you know if Mad Professor did any live shows with Massive Attack?

I don't think so.

They have my undying respect for bringing back Horace Andy on vocals. Check out his old stuff if you haven't already. Anything with "Skylarking" on it. In the '70s Horace was bigger in Jamaica than Bob Marley, but he's virtually unknown elsewhere.

Do you know if Mad Professor did any live shows with Massive Attack? It seems unlikely (to me, but what do I know?), but damn it would be great...

They tour a lot. I've seen them 4 or 5 times in the last few years. Mad Professor does a short set of Dub mixing of recorded tracks (when I've seen him, he's set up right on the dancefloor, facing the stage -- you can walk right up and talk to him when he's not busy). Then Lee comes out with just bass and drums and either a guitarist or keyboards, very minimal. The Prof remixes 'em live Dub-style. I won't attempt to describe what happens next.

No Protection is one of my top-three "rainy day records" of all time...

Put it on, listen to the music and the falling rain, watch the lightning dance outside the window...

Not a bad way to spend an afternoon.

I think I'd fucking flip if I saw Mad Professor or Lee Scratch Perry. The two together would make my head explode.

"the companion record No Protection"

Aye! Mad Professor is a fucking genius and the only man who can sustain prolonged contact with Lee 'Scratch' Perry. I've seen their joint shows many a time.

No, no, no....

Dave Navarro ceased to be interesting not too long after Jane's Addiction broke up. He was so much cooler when he was a junkie, rather than a starstruck Hollywood wanna-be.

Mezzanine's not a *bad* album by any stretch of the imagination, but Protection, and the companion record No Protection, are incredible.

Oh really?! "Mezzanine" is their weakest album. "Protection" is their best.

Mezzanine by Massive Attack is killer diller. Dave Navarro says its his favorite album. Daves solo album is pretty cool too. Listen to Daves album a few times and it starts to grow on you. It stayed in my cd player for three months.

thanx bjacques for reminding my that i have a future sounds cd dj shadow i prefer his "endtroducing" cd over his latest i think i hyped it up too much for myself... now my recent cycle of cds in the car have been; massive attack's "mezzanine", lords of acid's "farstucker", chemlab's "eastside militia", front 242's "up evil", mephisto walz's "the eternal deep", vampire rodent's "clockseed" and the ever popular gwar's "scumdog's of the universe".

FSOL - Papua New Guinea, various mixes, an oldie but goodie. Pure brain candy.

Also, Muslimgauze, who was really the late Bryn Jones. He composed sinister Middle Eastern dance music with names like Intifada and Help Afghanistan Grow More Poppies. I blame the zeitgeist.

I've also been on a Slayer kick these past couple of days.. With Haunting the Chapel, Raining Blood, Angel of Death, Jesus Saves, Seasons in the Abyss is probably one of the coolest metal song ever written. Surpasses anything Metallica ever did.

The new Fields of the Nephilim is amazing. The DJ Shadow cd "Private Press" is the only one I've heard from him yet. He seems really interesting. LadyTron are another group that have not left the cd player.

Well, your Uncle had his cake and ate it too. I saw both shows! Yes, you two were right on the money, Sig-Ros was great!!!! The Bass rig they had was mind numbing! Good show. Now the Rev., well maybe it was a off night. That why Im posting now.I left after 6 tunes. Unc

i agree... sigur ros. man, they have to come all the way from iceland to do a show!!
Posted on Friday, November 8, 2002 - 4:21 pm:   Edit PostPrint Post

Go see Sigur Ros... The Reverend was good in his time, but he's past his prime. He's always a fun show, but he tours pretty regularly. Who knows when Sigur Ros will be around again...???
Posted on Thursday, November 7, 2002 - 9:15 pm:   Edit PostPrint Post

Im can't make up my mind wether to see Sig-Ros or the Rev. Horton Heat! Both would be great shows!What one would you go too? There both at small veiws and would like to see both!OI!

Sounds like you have similar taste in music.. you might also enjoy The Tiger Lillies (, Calexico, Pinback. A good place to listen to new indie bands is Enjoy! I'll check out the dirty three, thanks for the tip.

i bought amore del tropico a couple of nights back during a mass indulgence at waterloo records.

another band on touch & go that i'm completely in awe of is the dirty three.

Anyone here heard of Black Heart Procession?
Posted on Friday, November 1, 2002 - 7:53 am:   Edit PostPrint Post

Aye, DJ Shadow good. "Six Days" is the best (tho unintentional?) 9/11 song. I was a little disappointed in his stage show, though. He played the album pretty much by the numbers. And he's a slightly overrated scratcher. But he had the truly truly awesome ANTI-POP CONSORTIUM open for him.

DJ Shadow good, but DJ Spooky better.

I was taken to a concert by a friend of mine:

Quiet Riot opened, followed by
Vince Neil (doing all Crue covers)
and Tesla headlining.

I was amazed how down-to-earth all these guys were. Kevin DuBrow, lead singer of Quiet Riot, even went out in the crowd after the show, shook hands, and autographed items for people. I guess when you fall that hard, you get grateful for the fans you have.

I now have Best of albums from Quiet Riot, Tesla, and Dokken in heavy rotation on my CD player.

Cum on, feel the noize....
