“The Revolutionist” was first released under the name J-Love & Ric Nice feat. Guru and under the title “Behold”. Guru then released the track on his fourth studio album outside of Gang Starr as Baldhead Slick & da Click. Now the title was changed to “The Revolutionist”. But the version/mix I love (the first of the YouTube videos here on this page.), is found on a bootleg 12″ under the Gang Starr name and also here called “The Revolutionist”.
”Look at all these slave masters, posin’ on yo’ dollar” … On “JU$T,” Run The Jewels deliver some hard hitting lyrics attacking the money system and the injustice that comes with it. Let’s face it, capitalism isn’t the same as democracy. Democracy is everyone equal rights, and that’s not what a capitalist society delivers. If you can afford two lawyers when charged with something, of course you have an advantage compared to someone living in the projects with no money.
“State of the Union” is their new aggressive and simply fantastic track. Produced by DJ Premier, it’s “a fiery return to the frontlines as they take on Donald Trump and his fascist regime,” according to a new press release. It continues: “An unflinching statement about the destruction the current administration has unleashed on the country and its people, ‘State of the Union (STFU)’ speaks truth to power while urging people to fight against racism, injustice and oppression with their vote.”
After the murder of George Floyd, We the 99% of the people MUST join together, no matter what your skincolour, gender, age, sexuality are. We have had enough with the killing of black people. This is NOT a right vs. left question, this is a ”we the 99%”, that are ruled by the few psychopaths […]
Don’t much to say about this one lyricswise, but here are the mighty Redman showing his greatness with more or less just one long flow. This is one of these rare tracks that I can listen to repeat over and over again without getting tired of it. And it was only released on a mixtape back in 2014 …..

Yes, I know! Liking System of a Down is not cool by the insecure crowd, you know the ones who always wait for someone with an authority on the topic to say something so they can all think a like. Like sheeps going to slaughter. To me System of a Down have always had a unique sound and lyrics that matters. Just listen to this and focus on the lyrics. A masterpiece!
Nina Gordon and Louise Post could be the coolest persons of any band in the 1990’s to front a band. Ok, maybe not cooler than Courtney Love (Hole), but they are up there with Liam Gallagher (Oasis) and Kim Gordon (Sonic Youth). There’s just something about these two that feels free, totally free with that ”I don’t give a f*’k” attitude that I’m a sucker for. No intention of playing any games, just natural cool. Just look at the Glastonbury YouTube video down below and you might get what I mean.
I’m not a big love song person, that’s why I have a hard time with for example, early The Beatles and other ”She loves me yeah, yeah” songs or a lot of slow paced ”love me” soul from the 1960’s. It doesn’t give me anything, but that can have to do with how we define love and what’s sleazy and what genuine. I also have a hard time to express why I like the love songs that I like. Maybe because I think early love is more pain than pleasure? Maybe I don’t really like love? I have often wished for myself that I wouldn’t love so I could have gone on and done other things in my life, but maybe I would have then missed out … who knows? Maybe that’s a task for some psychology major somewhere. But when I get the question of what I would choose when it comes to this category, I always think of this one and Depeche Mode ”It’s No Good” first and then I have to think about other titles.
Year: 1971Genre: Prog/RockFrom: ”Moving Waves” LP I don’t have any direct personal relationship to this track. I’ve heard it on and off during my life. Thought it was pretty good, but didn’t seek it out. Then by accident I came by this live clip from 1973 on YouTube that you can see down below, and […]
“Stellarvore”, or the eater of stars. The last song you hear when cosmos implode, when it all goes back to chaos. When darkness once again reign over the universe…
