La La - I Can't Hear You

Just saw that the Cornerstone RAS crew has released a follow up to last year's "Look At All The Love That We Found" compilation. The original was a tribute to Sublime, one of the most loved and rowdy bands to ever rock a party and no longer with us since May 22nd 1996...

The new dealio I just came across on the shelves at Virgin Mega Store is a combination DVD / CD called "Look At All The Love That We Found: Live"...

The DVD interviews acts about what they thought was special about Sublime like The Living Legends, Los Lobos etc , and then combines footage from a show at the Henry Fonda Music Box Theater in LA last fall.

You'll see great footage of The Ziggens, Fishbone, Bargain Music, Blackalicious, Ozomatli, Unwritten Law and dueds like Ikey Owens of Mars Volta, and Stephen Perkins of Jans Addiction/Banyan etc all getting down to some great music onstage...plus slideshows, rehersals, extras, and all that jazz...






Also a CD is included with even more cuts that didn't fit on the first tribute album
and some of em are better than stuff that was included the first time around...

Here's Ozomatli and Fishbone off the audio only Tribute project released last year
Ozomatli - April 29th 1992
Fishbone - Daterape

(click to listen to the rest of the tribute album from last year)


Here's a couple Sublime songs by acts that are on the new CD/DVD release that came out last week...

Obviously these aren't Sublime versions, and that is just the way it goes...

I had the chance to hang with those Sublime dudes, travel with 'em a bit and set up some of their shows and recording sessions as they were on their way up and outta control... and they are still some of the most memorable, fun & reckless nights of my widdle life...

In a few minutes I'm getting in the car, and on my way to Thanh Long, and I'll be passing the motel where Brad OD some 10 years ago...

That's a bummer, but his music always uplifts me, even if it's somebody else doing it...

It's hard to take solace in new mixes of old faves, but at least it's fun...

Now these aren't the real thing of course, but they are good enough to stir some memories and drink a brew or two too...

Plus I think Brad would be beyond stoked to know Chuck D of Public Enemy was spittin his lyrics !
