and as a partial soundtrack warm-up to the aforementioned BIKE KILL. here's a killer track off the new/only DFA 1979 release. the video is boring, but the music is hot. and i love canadians.
• Death From Above 1979 - Romantic Rights
and on a sidenote: i've never been an eminem fan, in fact i'd probably be more in the hater camp. but i've got new found respect for his new video/song "Mosh", even if it crosses over the cheeze-factor line a few times. i guess it takes some courage to take such an outspoken political stand (after all, the Dixie Chicks almost got burned at the stake for making a mere comment during a show in Europe). We're talkin' big balls, and if anyone's got 'em, it's eminem.
• Mosh (real player)
