It's the one about Richard Hell but I haven't seen it in ages. I don't get Sundance either.

Just got back from class, so let me catch up here. you're right I did fly off the handle a little bit. For that I apologize. Everyone is entitled to their own opinion, even if its a dislike of sublime
. But I think there's a bit of hypocrisy in your point. You say that image should remain separate from music. A good band is good, regardless of image (as in the "geeky" Beach Boys). then you speak poorly of Sublime because of their image of "Heroin, frat parties, white boy rap ska and one hell of a mean streak" (incidentally, my friend coined the phrase "broism" which neatly encompases that whole culture." Sometimes its difficult to disassociate a music from its image. Sometimes culture is essential to a music (ie rastafari and Bob Marley). But for me, I like to try to allow music to create its own merit, then examine its culture after the music itself has proved itsself.

Rod, just now saw this reply. Yes, I would love a Verlaine funny story. Lots of respect for Verlaine. Television is mindblowing, I will put on Marquee Moon right now.<P>By the way, seen two shows at Cafe Du Nord, I probably even clapped or sang along. Thanks.

Santa Barbara for now
Tried listening to Jack J.'s CD the other day, couldn't do it. I was into it for a while, but it gets repetitive quick. I opted out of his show to buy tickets for Tom Petty and Jackson Browne. Good guy though.<P>Try Coltrane, "Giant Steps," The Ka'au Crater Boys, Braddah Iz, and Willy K, especially "North Shore Reggae Blues" for surf tunes. Oh yeah and Kapena.

Jesse Cook.<P>New school flamenco music. It has some kooky synth and drum beats behind it, but the guitar work is pretty awesome. You'd probably hear it on some of the new smooth jazz stations.<P>Hmmm, I wonder if this should be on the confessions page.
