my 2008...

Two major discoveries, so to speak:

KRS-One. I don't know how I missed him all through the 80s and 90s. But he is absolutely the baddest badass MC I've heard.

Hot Snakes. A band consisting of members from Drive Like Jehu and Rocket from the Crypt that rocks harder than both. Or rocked, rather. They broke up a couple years ago, of course.


To a lesser degree, I also found I like: Regina Spektor, The Joggers, Medications, My Dear Disco, some Nina Simone, some Nas.


I didn't get too many new albums that blew me away, but the one that did, that has never gotten old, is:

Um, I'd have to think about this, I'm not even sure I discovered in 2008... I think I've discovered old school bands like Scorpions, Motorhead, Accept and all that.


Never gave them a proper chance

I don't even know most of them by name. But it's a great, career-spanning mix.

Here's some of what's on it (I searched lyrics and found some titles):

Squash All Beef
Rappaz R. N. Dainja
My Philosophy
MCs Act Like They Don't Know
The MC
No Gimmicks (Lord Finesse track that KRS-One appears on and OWNS.)
I'm Still #1
A Friend
Free Mumia
Drug Dealer
C.I.A. (Criminals in Action)
Ah Yeah


All those tracks are insanely great.
