A lot of stuff not turning up on the web, such Saul Williams' Telegram, based on a wicked Bad Brains sample, and the song Zodiak by my favorite weirdo bay area "power violence" band Spazz. Also missing: King Elementary's Rebecca, a ripping song they played live when we opened for these guys 3 years ago in Philly, and Rent For Sale by INDK. I played in a reggae band with Jimmy from INDK for years! He played a SG and had the illest reggae ka-chunk on the guitar, i took a lot of notes playing with this dude... he's got a new group called Menkena, check them here.

I got some friends on the mixtape this week: Check out Dine Navajo punks Blackfire, their new CD is a heavy mix of punk and traditional Navajo voice-and-percussion songs, really powerful stuff. These guys are literally fighting for their lives. LONG LIVE THE SAN FRANCISCO PEAKS!!

Other notables: One Day As A Lion is Zack de la Rocha from RATM and Jon Theodore formerly of the Mars Volta. The Silencers are Timmy from Rancid and Vic from the Slackers and if you like Rancid listen real close to the Buccaneer track....

how this all works

Every week or so I will post my latest mixtape, which this month you can hear me spinning before and after OUTERNATIONAL's weekly show at Bulgarian Bar. I will post the songlist, some tidbits bla bla and post this Music Player so you can listen on your computer or wherever you are.
I'm using this site called "Project Playlist" to make the player. They don't have everything in their song archives, especially some of the undergound punk stuff, so you'll have to go diggin for those tracks (unless you shoot me a message, maybe i can send you the missing songs).
