Rob really needs to put out some new music. I'm itching to hear what he'll come up with after such a long break.

I was hoping this show would be covered by hate5six so I could enjoy it in amazingly good quality lol.

I have to watch these clips still.




A lot of people ask me what kind of music I like. I love "soul music". My "soul music" isnít a style, genre or niche. Itís music that is genuine. Itís a painful lyric, a dirty bassline, itís a harrowing vocal, itís feedback, itís an anthem, itís a love song, itís anarchy. Iíve got my personal favourites but in the end it doesnít matter who or where it comes from... so long as itís good and it's real.

Nah. Not this time. I tried to talk him out of it. I can stand Social Distortion in small doses. And that means about 1 song every 5 years. :)

SD covers are lazy and Rob is usually good with reinterpretting songs so I thought he should have just done either the Beatles or Smiths' songs he's already recorded. He puts a lot of time into covers so this choice seemed really strange and out of character to me. I know he liked SD a lot when he was like 20 but that was a long time ago. Not sure why he chose to do this now.

Also, this might sound super gay but I suggested he try "There's Something Going On" by Frida (of Abba fame) or "Live to Tell" by Madonna. He could turn them into really interesting and spooky songs. But it's his band .... or solo project with live band or whatever you want to call it... and he can do what he wants.

So I'm with ya on this one, Paul.

I thought What Difference Does It Make was a Ramallah song for about a year until a friend recognized it; still one of my favorite Ramallah songs regardless who wrote it.

I'm going to disagree with Paulie and Mark.

Rob seems to finally be coming into his own as a front man. The other recent Ramallah videos I've seen, he's high-pitched and something just seemed off. He's looking comfortable now, and it comes across in the music.

As for SD... I agree that the song is overplayed, but I think he added something new, even if it was mainly just speeding up the pace. My guess is that he can relate and has some relevant things in common with Mike Ness back when Ness wrote the song.

Overall, I'm just happy to see Rob performing, looking happy and healthy (i.e. kinda chubby and not smacked out), and under the impression that he's taking care of himself. That guy's music and lyrics have kept me alive more times than I can count... just happy that they kept him alive, somehow, too.

As far as covers go, YDI - Mad at the world.

I'd love to hear a band I dig cover that gem.

I think the Bad Vibes would sound perfect doing that one

In all fairness, I didn't stream the video of the cover. I drew my conclusion from a recording he sent me a couple of weeks before the show. He may have changed it since then.

It doesn't sound like any thought was put into it...Speed it up,slow it down,Mosh as directed....I'm not a fan of SD outside of the first LP,and first few 45's...Yer bro could do better with a better song,if he wanted...My two cents...

I agree. My favorite Social D was the "White Light" album but even that was a bit of a cartoon of a real rock band (if there is such a thing). They kinda make the Stray Cats look like the real article.

By the way, sorry if I seem jumpy to defend my brother. Old habits die hard and there were a few years where .... some people... used a lot of fake screen names online to criticize him and make false accusations against him. I'm making an effort to break that habit now that he's around to defend himself.

I don't know about here but on Bridge 9 and other sites. They might have been real people but they were working at the direction of a certain someone.

Nobody actually listens to or gives a shit what the fucking B9 douchebags think. Board is toxic, they don't know shit from shit.
