Revolutionary Generation


I'm going to see The Stone Roses in a football stadium today. Reports from the first three nights have ranged from 'great' to 'a religious experience'. Nothing if not enthusiastic, Roses fans. The support acts today are The Courtneeners (no interest from me I'm afraid, generic northern rock band) and Public Enemy (lots of interest from me, groundbreaking hip hop band who remain untouched in their field). Fear Of A Black Planet, their 1990 album, is a must own record from 911 Is A Joke to Can't Do Nuttin' For Ya Man, Brother's Gonna Work it Out and Fight The Power. And this one, which samples Musical Youth and Parliament...

Very possibly the best live band I've ever seen. PE, not the Stone Roses...

Public Enemy supporting Stone Roses? Surely some mistake.

That's the way it works Swede.
I saw PE many years ago too Robster- they were very very good.

We're getting Rodrigo y Gabriela in Dublin. Do you think the Roses don't like us?!

I saw PE supporting U2

That does seem cruel Michael.

Lee- I refer you to The Swede's comment.
