    DO NOT listen to LuLu, the release he did with Metallica. it's god-awful. Same with The Raven, his album-length interpretation of the Poe poem.

    I like it, but I wouldn't call it an essential.

    Bryan is about 95% correct here, but focuses only on Reed's 70s work. Some of his 80s stuff is pretty damned stellar. The Blue Mask, New Sensations, and especially New York are really great albums. The songwriting is much tighter than his 70s work.

    Janelle MonŠe is an outstanding live performer who dabbles in all sorts of genres, including neo-soul, R&B, funk, Dance-punk and numerous others. Her lone LP, The ArchAndroid (Suites II and III), is really the only place to go for her music at the moment, with singles like Tightrope and Cold War garnering the most attention. Her stage presence draws a lot of comparisons to James Brown, while her musical influences have been listed as Brown, Michael Jackson, Prince, Outkast, Grace Jones, Stevie Wonder, David Bowie and Funkadelic - just to name a few. She's bound to impress the majority of people who watch her set.

    Somebody tell me about Jeff the Brotherhood. The two videos I've seen make me think I should investigate further. Are they any good live? which album do I start with?

    Start with We Are The Champions. It's just 2 brothers, one on drums and one on guitar/vocals. The guitarist plays a 3 string guitar, with the top 3 strings removed. The only time I saw them was at a shitty venue with a horrific crowd, and they still put on a kick ass show. I'm looking forward to seeing them at Coachella with better sound and crowd.

    This is from the show I went to.
    This ain't no middle of the mall shit.

    If you just wanna go Wu, they only have two other albums, Iron Flag and 8 Diagrams. I really enjoy both. The solo albums, well...there are a ton.

    yeah i'm aware there are a ton. I'm just curious of what they will play besides those group albums, because aside from some method man shows, there arent many set lists from them.

    Though, if anyone is bored, I'd like a write up of every act not yet written about. And a set list of what I can expect when they play at Coachella.

    Here's a Wu setlist from Glastonbury. This actually might be more fun than I was anticipating. Although, goddamn as much as I love the Wu on album, they are easily the single most disjointed fucking hip hop act live you can find a goddamn video of.

    Basically, the only worthwhile solo albums you'll hear anything from will be Liquid Swords by GZA and Only Built For Cuban Linx by Raekwon, seeing as how both artists had toured these recently. I would imagine they're still doing the Ol' Dirty Bastard tribute with Shimmy Shimmy Ya too.

    Damn that set is great. Yeah I really like liquid swords. I'll have to check out the one from Raekwon. I've heard in an interview that for the anniversary of enter the 36 chambers, RZA is getting everyone alive together to tour, but idk if that was just talks or not.

    That's probably less of a boon than you think. I saw them with everyone except ODB and it was a shitshow of mic feedback, people rapping over each other and general lack of coherence.

    I had a lot of fun when I saw Wu at RtB in 2010. It was in NY though, so the crowd was awesome, really into it.

    This is Palma Violets from London; their debut album just leaked on ? today (three weeks early). They'll definitely be a chill tent-opener in the early day. Not groundbreaking at all, but nice indie-pop.

    theophilus london came to the LA stop of MAd Decent's annnual block party. He spent half of his set plugging in his merch. He brought his cousin on stage as a hypeman, who spent the entire set drinking and shouting into the mic. The DJ would just keep on playing gunshot loops as per his request. At the end, he decided to crowdsurf, and some guy tried to take his hat, and he got mad butthurt and started a fight. I"ve also read articles that he peacocks all over SoHo hoping to get noticed by fashion rags. IMO, arrogant and overrated as fu!k performer, skip.

    One of the last discoveries I made on friday's lineup, as they are billed so low, but these guys are pretty darn talented. If you like Fleet Foxes, you will enjoy these guys, very notable similarities.

    for solo albums, the MOST essential ones are- GZA's Liquid Swords, ODB's Return to the 36 Chambers, Ghostface's Supreme Clientele and Fishscale(and to a lesser degree, Iron Man), Raekwon's Only Built 4 Cuban Linx, & Method Man's Tical

    Thanks for mentioning Ghostface, as both these albums are fantastic.

    I already had Rodriguez on my Coachooser, just out of random curiosity, but then found out about this documentary after watching tonight's BAFTAs (the film won). What a great (and sad) story. I look forward to catching his set.

    Still a lot of acts that I would like to be educated on. I listened to a lot of Tokyo Ska Paradise Orchestra today, but I am not familiar enough with them to give a legitimate write-up. They seem like they would be a fucking blast live.
