Fred is full of surprises, which makes them less surprising.

Dang, I read the bio at wikipedia, but I honestly don't remember them, or
Rob Zombie. I do dig Rob Zombie's little brother's band >>>

I don't. He's a little too cartoonish and overproduced for me. WAY
better than his brother's Powerman 5K **** though.
In the disco/metal vein, I'm more of a old Ministry fan.

I like RZ. It is good music to get pumped to. I agree it's overproduced,
but for me it's a guilty pleasure. I like it.

I also love the Fela Kuti song Zombie. I would have been more surprised
if Crazy had mentioned that instead. Anyone else into Fela? Good music
to have in your head on a 3k Ft climb.

I saw White Zombie for New Years in 1988, long before they got national
exposure. 20 bands for 20 bucks and they were by far the crankenest act
of the night. A little less produced back then and Sean looked smokin'
hot in her gold lame hot pants.

Ok, I finally found a familiar song (the first track)
http://www.robzombie.com/music/default.aspx/pid/2094 that gets a lot of
air time, or used to. And I know why I didn't know who it was; I frig'n
hate the song and would change stations every time that damn song came one.

I'm violently opposed to using electro-shock therapy to treat mental
illness, but in his case, I'll make an exception.

I don't know a lot of Fela. I've got an old tape a friend made for me
of live stuff. The compositions sounded raw but booming. I'm a big fan
of King Sunny Ade. Both Afropop, but I'm not sure if they're
necessarily in the same category within. Fela's seems to be much more
of a sociopolitical force, and I have no idea what King Sunny is
saying....
One of his Fela's sons is in a band that used to play here a lot. I
forget the name.

I got to see Fela play in 1990 before he died ('94 I think) opening for
Jimmy Cliff and it was spectacular. A big band and about 20 dancers
going crazy. That was my first exposure and I was hooked. He is actually
credited with being the originator of the Afropop style and has also
been called the James Brown of Africa. He was jailed for a while in
Nigeria for criticizing the government in his lyrics.
I've also seen his son Femi Kuti (at the SF Fillmore) and he's great
too. Not quite the scale of production that Fela was, but really funky
and good.
I've heard of Kind Sunny but haven't listened. I'll have to check him out.

Matt (ahhh, music)

How old? Newwave/Pop Ministry?

Saw them at the Bongo-a-gogo in staten island on the Every Day is
Halloween tour. Never liked their later stuff - to heroin depressing
for me.

I'm of the Stigmata/Burning Inside/Just One Fix-era fandom. For me, the
fact that they came from new wave pastel pop makes it all the more
delectably twisted.

That was one hell of a creative shift. I was a big fan during the Land of
Rape and Honey/The Mind is a Terrible Thing to Taste era but lost interest
when it all started sounding the same. I have to say that one of the
insanest concerts I've ever been to was Ministry in 1990 taunting the
audience from behind their chainlink fence more than capably captured on the
"In Case You Didn't Feel Like Showing Up" video.

I saw them at Lollapalooza in Pennsy in... I dunno, 1993? To quote a
friend of mine who later wrote about it, I "went ape-**** in the middle
of the pit and started throwing chunks of sod, terrifying the **** out
of everyone." Predictably, it's hard to remember. He went on to write,
"When a fan decides to single-handedly destroy a music venue with his
bare hands, I take notice."

BTW: I think REVCO has a new album featuring Gibby Haynes, Jello
Biafra, Billy Gibbons and Rick Nielsen. I'm not kidding. It's probably
****, but what a freakin' lineup.

I like to listen to Fela Kuti. Discovered him while at the music store
litening to all the albums to see if anything strikes me. So, now he is in
my collection.
I checked out Rob Zombie and must say, it is really bad. In fact IMO
downrught terrible.

I didn't know about the extras but there's a Ministry/REVCO tour right
now. I'm about to put up my REVCO 12" singles on Ebay ATM.

And since this thread has gotten far off topic we just got back from
Glenn Branca's SYMPHONY NO. 13, “HALLUCINATION CITY,” FOR 100 ELECTRIC
GUITARS:

http://makeashorterlink.com/?D59D21CDC

"Starting at a deafening level, the work got louder almost throughout,
and - after a stasis of a few minutes that could have signaled an ending
- suddenly burst into tensely rising chromatic scales."

Sums it up nicely. The above writeup says there were no breaks but
thankfully in this performance it was broken up into 4 movements, only
the 2nd movement gave me a headache, it was loud and shrill. The rest
was pretty awesome. The last movement sounded like an Ennio Morricone
soundtrack played at 1000 decibels, really wild.

70 guitars, 15 basses, and a drummer, and the drummer got a 10 minute
standing ovation when it was over. And I think, but not sure, that Mike
Watt was playing first bass. And one of the women guitarists in the
front row sang the entire time, since she had no mic and there are no
lyrics for this piece who knows what the hell she was screaming.

I loved it, Kimberly absolutely hated it and laughed the whole time.
Earplugs were almost mandatory but since we were up in the balcony I
went commando.
