Not bad. The Tim-sung tunes I've heard so far sound ultra lazy though. I agree with most that they peaked on LWW and stayed good til Indestructible. Everything after that has been mediocre, with a few outliers. I'd frankly rather hear a new Bastards album, because Lars' other projects are pretty boring too.

It's gotten to the point where Tim needs an accent coach if he wants to gain any more supporting roles as "middle-aged smoker recovering from a massive stroke." He's doing whatever the singing equivalent is of overacting. :shifty:

Remember Rancid??? I just saw them last night with the Dropkick Murphy's, neither of them are my favorites but I went with a friend and they were both really good. Not my generation punk rock but still good.

Rancid moved around a lot less than when I saw them in 95, back then they were bouncing all over the place, but at least now Tim and Lars actually sing into the microphone. They look terrible but sound the same, most of the set was the first 2 or 3 albums with some new songs thrown in.

The encore was amazing with both bands coming out for Cretin Hop, Folsom Prison Blues and If the Kids Are United

Awesome, Rancid usually plays "Kids" but it's been many years since I've seen them.

I bought the new fucking record a couple weeks ago and I still haven't played it!

Love this BBC session, great alternate versions in superb quality. Time Bomb is just immense with that extended bit in the middle. Shame about the quick fades which are probably due to DJs talking...

I just polished off some Low Country shrimp & grits and a mess of collards. That's a hell of a strain on the arm.

I hate it when DJs talk over the music as if they are somehow more important than the music.

Yeah, it's a pet hate of mine. Even worse when they sing over the end like Steve Wright (it's a Limey thing).

I can't imagine anyone thinking it's a good thing.

It was one of the things that made Alan Freed's reputation back in 1954. He'd scream along to the song and add percussion by hitting a phone book. But, yeah, it's not 1954 anymore and listening to rock n roll isn't some cult thing that needs encouragement.

That was a lot of fun, thanks for sharing. They always seemed to have the ability to do some interesting things live (like that version of that "Wrongful Suspicion" you posted earlier), but my understanding is they rarely do.
Look, you have to establish context for these things. And I maintain that unless you appreciate the Fall of Constantinople, the Great Fire of London, and Mickey Mantle's fatalist alcoholism, live Freddy makes no sense. If you want to half-ass it, fine, go call Simon Schama to do the appendix.
