My favorite recording of Jesus Christ Superstar was called "A Resurrection" and features the Indigo Girls in the roles of Mary Magdelene and Jesus. It's disconcerting at first, but somehow works.

Right now I'm listening to "Handel's Messiah: A Soulful Celebration" which uses the texts from the Messiah but sets them to Gospel, Spiritual, R & B, and even Hip Hop arrangements. It's pretty cool.
I think I saw the one on PBS you were talking about. The dude in the leather was cool. I did hate the movie, and listening to Tim Rice talk about his experiences with the making of the movie was just laughable. They need to update it.

Dude in the leather jacket was awesome. That was probably the best recording, but I can't seem to find it.

... there really is a difference between bike punks and punks on bikes ....

I guess I'm kinda' bridging the gap then.

CONFLICT
DIRT
RUDIMENTARY PENI
CRASS
D.R.I.

hmmmmm, and then of course the odd mix of Radio Head, Beck, Dead Prez and Paris (The Muthaf#ckin' Bush Killa'- not Hilton)
C'Mon lets get some more radical music in here!

Oh yeah, and then there's my band, "Economic Theory" www.angelfire.com/band2/economictheory
with the as of yet not quite famous Bike Punk's Anthem:

"SUV's on their sides, molotov cocktails in their eyes- Bike punks, for life, BIKE PUNKS!
In their lanes and on thier roades, f#ckin' with cars wherever they go- Bike punks, for life, BIKE PUNKS!
Destroy the auto's of the rich, knives of U-locks, you choose which- Bike punks, for life, BIKE PUNKS!
Our fallen comrades, you we mourn.... drunken drivers be forewarned- Bike punks, till death, BIKE PUNKS!"

... I guess it's a little extreme, but it sounds great chanting on rides!

peace

Crass is the most important band in underground/DIY/Punk/Hardcore/independent/anything wortwhile ever.

To say the least, I definitely expected a lot more kids here to be into Punk/Hardcore/Crust/etc. Disappointing!

So far today:

DROPDEAD - 1993 12"
Born Against / Universal Order of Armageddon 7"
Chino Horde - This is Done 7"
Sheryl's Magnetic Aura - Like You Mean It 7"
Assfactor4 - Self-Titled 12"
Heroin - Self-Titled 7"

the punk I listen to abovoius isn't cool enough since it sure the **** isn't CRASS. They sucked.
Yup, just my opinion, but I am glad to see another concerned thinker appear in here.

Effigies
SSD
DYS
AOF
Husker Du
MinorThreat
Blitz
Adverts

...the list goes on.

Crass only sucks if you're more interested in guitar chords than social issues.
Having said that I used to be all about the American Hardcore; Adolescents, Verbal Abuse, Void, Faith, the old Fits, Bad Brains, etc.
...that's just when I was a moron though....

*ouch* O.k. that might have been construed as mean, but it's also true.

Anyhow, anarcho-punks need to not be as concerned with the mainstream bands, Crass, Conflict, etc, there are MANY many good bands with good messages not half as famous as those, too many to list. (Youth In Asia, Omega Tribe, The Suspects, etc.) I just wish Crass fans weren't as elitist as they sometimes are.

But really it's all about Player King from Seattle. They rocked.

Faith is amazing. I love anything that has to do with the DC/Annapolis scene from '84 to '86. Rites of Spring, Embrace, Gray Matter, Moss Icon, etc. Personally I dig the early-to-mid-90s scene in California/Michigan/Florida the most: Indian Summer, Navio Forge, Embassy, Mohinder, Heroin, Second Story Window, Chino Horde, Ordination of Aaron, Moonraker...so glad there has been a resurgance of this style all over the country in the last three or four years. But I don't think most people into straight-up Hardcore/Punk bands would dig stuff like this, other than a few Heroin songs from the LP and second 7".

I don't really think Crass is the best anarcho-punk band ever. Musically, I'd pick The Apostles or A//Political as a favourite (even though both sound nothing alike; they were just very good at what they did). But from the aspect of impact on the movement, Crass, to me, is the most important.

I didn't know that the music you listened to measured the intelligence you claim to have. Odd...to each their own.
We all dig our own graves. Just depends on what shovel you choose. I tire of politics, plus since when has punk had anything new to say (no a dig, but a question. Remember, I may not listen to your brand of "Smart Punk")? Same ideas, same issues, just newer a-holes running the countries. You can still take SubHumans tunes and apply them today. As well as SLF. What's the point? Tell what you have changed in this mess of a country. Or is the music your means to looking smart?

No, the music you listen to doesn't often have any direct tie to your inteligence. I know quite a few really clueless crass fans, and several realy inteligent SOA kind of people... and in some sub-conscious way I'm sure I do think it makes me look smart, though consciously, I just like the sound.
Bassicaly radical punk music has brought about lots of awareness, but it's not THE way to change things, no. Crass didn't exactly destroy hierarchy, but they did get a lot of people thinking about it and working on it.
I personaly do community organizing work, and I don't consider that to be musicaly-oriented.

But as for current punk politics, I would argue that Conflict is pretty up-to date, what with their newest album talking about 9-11 and Carlo Guliani (sp?) and in general anti-authoritarian politics will ring true as long as authority exists. (more true than say.. the Greatfull Dead's flower power...) also all of thier gigs are charity events for stuff like the ALF etc. ... better than a lot of bands.

However, I don't really want to start some argument about this (more than I already have) so whatever. Still friends? *gimme a hug, you*
It's the bikes that matter!

P.S. A//political kicks ass, though I still havn't actualy found anything of theirs. (damn)
