It is Black History Month!

To celebrate same, I now have an excellent excuse to post PE’s ‘Fight the Power’ – released 22 years ago, BTW.  (Ouch.  I grow old, I grow old, etc.)

    They were waaaay far ahead of their time. Just saw this one on MTV last week and the way back clock kicked in.

    You shouldn’t need an excuse to post this epic track.

    Ah love this, I had this album on tape and listened to it all the time while I was working as a night time security guard/accounting guy at a gardening supply store in Ottawa. Summer job while at Carleton U.

    Good times, and it is scary how fast the time has gone.

      Did you see them at that show in Hull? Was awesome.

        No dagnabbit, would’ve been great. I did see some other bands in Hull though, what a party that place was. When I was 18 I saw a show somewhere in Hull that I have very fond memories of. It was the Flock of Seagulls and the Fixx, hehe. Danced myself stupid at that show and got picked up by a 25 y.o. after the show.

        Good times, though Flock of Seagulls doesn’t hold up that well over time…those silver suits definitely were of the period. I still really miss Ottawa, though with the Reformatories in power I bet that city is a lot colder and meaner now than it was under Chretien.

    These guys played in a dive I worked at one New Year’s Eve – must’ve been 1990 or ’91. If I remember correctly, Flavor Flav had trouble trying to cross the border from Seattle into Vancouver. They were amazing live. And, yes, we are old.
