“Last dance. Last chance for love.”
Frankie Knuckles turns to Derrick May. They both simultaneously shout “ROAD TRIP!”
JUST IMAGINE: A world where George Clinton became EIC of Marvel instead of Jim Shooter.
It’d be too good for this world, I’ll tell you that. I guess he’ll just have to settle for one of the weirder shout-outs in comics.

Apparently a classic Clash bootleg, but new to me! Thanks to Evan for recommending this one, it is a blast. Mick Jones’ original double LP mixes of the Combat Rock album are adventurous, dubby and a hell of a lot of fun. Plenty of delightfully weird variations on very familiar tunes. Was going to up it myself, but discovered that the Lightning Strikes blog has an expanded, two-disc version. Know your rights! Go get it.
I keep meaning to get this somehow, so here’s my latest motivation.
"Move yer meat, ya dumb humps, we gotta have this up’n’ready in time for the Black Flag shindig!"

Someone once told me someday Iggy Pop is going to show up on stage with no skin and no one will notice anything is wrong and I believe it.
Killer Mike: Villains are noble people! Villains aren’t “thugs” and… What was the other shit they used to say on cartoons? Thugs, and henchmen, and shit? Villains are brilliant people. They determine their position. Like, Magneto’s not evil; he’s determined his position. He’s not going to allow himself to be talked down to by humans, he’s not gonna allow himself to be regulated, and there’s something very admirable about that. You know, if you look at Bizarro, in Superman, he’s no true fuckin’ villain so much as he’s from another dimension, where people don’t understand that in this dimension you can’t do the shit he does. I like villains, I always have. They’ve always been more complex and more interesting to me, and to me they’ve always held truer to their principles than heroes. —

Read Nate Patrin’s Best New Music review of the brilliantly no-nonsense collaborative album between Killer Mike and El-P, Run the Jewels.
This is less “why should I get this album” (ANSWER: “it’s free, duh”) and more “where does this sit in the context of these two artists’ previous works,” so think less “consumer guide” and more “justification for my eventual purchase of the vinyl version”.
