While clicking around some old bookmarks I hadn't touched upon in a long time, I came across the Astralwerks site (home to Chemical Brothers and others). They've updated the look of the site and added videos since the last time I remember visiting. Thanks, guys.
I thought I'd link to this Bad Brains I Against I video that I just thoroughly enjoyed. When I get some money together, I shall be getting some more BB. I just have a shitty tape of Rock For Light that's about 12 years old and fading. I love the way BB slips from reggae to speed metal to straight up punk song to song (sometimes measure to measure). Such a powerful sound and vibe. I think Prong is recorded on the other side.
After watching the video, I vaguely recalled that I've seen H.R. in concert. Way back during my Junior year at O.U., I went to Boulder, Colorado and stayed one of my housemates home. Later our other housemate and his girlfriend stopped by on their way to Colorado Springs. We all went to a show at (I think) Colorado University. H.R. stuck more to the reggae vibe, but I remember having a good (and sober) time.
Later that week, in a "spring break" moment, I ate two grams of mushrooms, watched Blade Runner in some strangers dormroom while he typed a term paper. As I peaked a group of GIGANTIC black C.U. basketball players started fighting over a girl right in front of this guys open door. Security eventually cam and escorted them all away as I sat transfixed and slack-jawed on the edge of dude's bed. After a time, I worked up enough courage to sneak out into the stairwell to smoke stale Camel Lights. My housemate was off getting laid by a girl he had a crush on in high school or something.
