Bad Religion - Stranger then Fiction (or Generator)
Anti-Flag - The Terror State (or Underground Network)

Joey Cape/Tony Sly - Acoustic (acoustic covers of their punk bands (Lagwagon and No Use for a Name respectively) songs)

I didn't see any reggae suggestions, so I'll give it a stab:

1. The ubiquitous "Legend" collection by Bob Marley. Sound is super sweet on Axioms - better than on any other speaker I've heard. Also available in a newly re-mastered version, but I haven't heard that copy yet.
2. The "Ultimate Collection" from Steel Pulse. Great disc despite all the victimization rhetoric.
3. Skatalites "Ball of Fire". Jazzy, funky instrumental jams. Mesmerizing when you have a little buzz going.
4. Burning Spear "Chant Down Babylon" anthology. Not the best recording for Axioms, but the old doper really strikes a chord in me.
5. Luciano's "Ultimate Collection". Lots of good tunes. Interesting blend of spirituality and Marx.
6. "We Free Again" from Groundation. Superb bass and percussion shine on Axioms (and my MAs ).

Bren, I think it's very possible that you, Alice and I are the only people on the face of the planet that own a copy of "Da-Da". Mine's on vinyl -- I'm assuming yours is, too. I can't find it on CD. Man, I haven't thought about that record in years. "I Love America" ranks up there with the funniest stuff he's ever done, and I catch myself humming "Pass The Gun Around" at odd times and forgetting what song it is. You da man!

By the way -- I always liked the Descendents, but I never knew where to start. Give me a recommendation for the one "gotta have" album. "Milo Goes to College"?

Mine's on CD, I originally owned it (like most of my music) on cassette - one record player in the house as a teen, and that was in the family room. Don't remember where I got it, but it would have been a chain music store, I'd think.

The earlier stuff is a lot more raw... and I'd kind of swept them under the rug of "stuff I don't listen to anymore" until the new album (Cool to Be You) came out... Milo, Bill, Steph... and augh... the bassist... Alvarez... forget his name... they'd matured along with me... no more "boogity boogity I love caffeine" stuff... it's more cerebral, less teen angsty and more "I'm an adult now - these are the mistakes I made"... all stuff from Milo's failed marriage and his part-time custody of his kids.

Thanks for the head up! That should make a very nice birthday present. 11/5. I like the Variety, nice small venue. What no dates for Nashville? Is that odd?

I saw him in Cincinnati and Nashville back in May, so it's probably unlikely he'll hit Nashville again this year. Did he play Atlanta in the spring? I'm thinking he didn't, because I can't imagine why I would have driven to Ohio rather than down to Atlanta.

The Variety is a nice enough place, but the places I like best are the ones where you're not forced to sit through the show. Did you catch him at Smith's Olde Bar back in '99 on the Mock Tudor tour? That was nice. Rest your elbows on the monitors, look up and let your jaw drop to the floor.

Have fun in November. I'd sure like to go, but I just bought a house and my guess is that time and money will both be scarce for a little while.

Mike
Finally picked up tickets for Richard Thompson's show on Nov. 4th. Not sure if I'm going to see Laurie Anderson or not. The wife thinks she a little too out there. I guess she doesn't like her for all the same reasons I do like her.
Also picked up Front Parlour Balllads to get primed.
Picked up the Live in Austin DVD too but I have not had time to warch it yet. This weekend for sure.
