i live on the east coast and "badfish: a tribute to sublime" plays a biggish venue around here seemingly multiple times a year

cumlord millionaire (some dude), Monday, 4 May 2009 20:27 (4 years ago) Permalink

it seems to me that a more accurate predecessor for Sublime is Fishbone, not Minutemen.

Domm P))) (M@tt He1ges0n), Monday, 4 May 2009 20:28 (4 years ago) Permalink

badfish are from pvd

we are so proud

Badfish does the same down here on the Gulf Coast too.

I always saw sublime as propagating that red hot chili peppers / fishbone alternafunk mess

minutemen didn't really cross my mind

鬼の手 (Edward III), Monday, 4 May 2009 20:31 (4 years ago) Permalink

do you think they ever played around for a few months as "date rape: a tribute to sublime" or "caress me down: a tribute to sublime"?

Hate to say that Minuteman were (along with the Gang of Four) one of the biggest influences on that mess.

Gang Of Four was a big influence on the Peps.

Don't lump Fishbone and RHCP in with Sublime, guys, come on

hmmm....who writes more retarded lyrics? keidis or brad?

Keidis is bad, but BRAD is uggggghhhhh

Whiney G. Weingarten, Monday, 4 May 2009 20:43 (4 years ago) Permalink

oh come on, that is not a tough call at all

RHCP didn't become unforgivably retarded until 1996! They have like an 11-year span of greatness before becoming a hollow self-parody.

No, I mean, RHCP lyris have always been ridiculous

But compare

Now while I shower in the rain
I watch my dolphin swim away
The one who listens to the surf
Can feel the pulse beat of the earth
And like my dolphin swims so free
The sun does swim into the sea

really doe?

You could be from park ave
Or from a park bench
You could be a politican
Or a bitchy princess
But if you're lookin' for a fist
And you're lookin' to unite
Put your knuckleheads together
Make a fist and fight
Not to your death
And not to your grave
I'm talking about that freedom
Fight like a brave

but Sublime lyrics are on a total other level

i mean, overall though i should say that yeah peppers destroy sublime, they have some joints u can't front on.

The first sample on 40 oz. is a Minutemen sample though, for what it's worth.

I was a massive Peps booster from '85 through '96; I stepped off that train with One Hot Minute (although Mother's Milk did make me consider hopping off, Blood Sugar Sex Magik pulled me back on).

yeah, people actually refer to them as the Peps?

I was curious earlier what a minutemen-like sublime song sounded like but

"hey up to jimi hendrix, to beer, the sonic lizard, the rape man. how about bob marley, bob dobbs, and bob forrest. to all those punker sluts. to eek-a-mouse. tom for lettin' us practice and crashin'. chilli part all night. peni, fugazi, rhino '59, greek1, the last puriah's, and naomis' hair. how about the butthole surfers, and frank zappa. aunt bea, big drill car, bert suzanka, and all the ziggens' around the world."

now I am no longer curious.
maybe still curious about which sugar ray song sounds like wire.

"Peps" was the "AnCo" of its time

Mother's Milk has "Magic Johnson" on it, which I thought was irredeemably stupid even for them (as opposed to endearingly stupid, like "Get Up And Jump" or "Catholic School Girls Rule").

lol, i've never heard that song, but now i kind of want to, as a die-hard Magic-era Lakers fan. Looks like it sums up the singular excitement of a fast break very nicely!

yeah mother's milk was weird but knock me down is fire

the deal with magic johnson was you saw that on the tracklist of this new red hots record and you were all like omg this is going to be just the most awesome thing since my dingaling and then haha no see it really is about magic johnson because we are from la lol
