I keep an eye on the wife's various conference locations, so that if any of them sync up with IMCTers, I can come along with her.
I have only met Tep and Kaleb in person, and spoken to Wolt once on the phone. So I have a lot of people to meet.
I've met up with Flex twice and sent Doc a super cool Yankees / KISS shirt but that's about it. If all goes well me and the Beaneater will down a few pints together and maybe go see Screeching Weasel in NYC.

I go to a lot of places that don't have IMCT people...that I know of
Beaneater is a solid dude, plus he'll let you get to second base with just a wink.
Good I like a cheap date that puts out.

So if you dig their albums through 2000, is there anything worth delving into in their post-2000s albums? From what I've heard, it's mostly rehashing.
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.

I think Indestructible is still a great album, with plenty of crucial cuts (title track, Fall Back Down, Red Hot Moon, Spirit of '87, Back Up Against the Wall, etc.) but Let The Dominoes Fall and, especially, ...Honor Is All We Know don't have as much to offer. I listened to Honor again the other day and was struck by how much it blurs together, even by Rancid's usual standards.

Honestly, I think the best song they've put out since 2000 is the comp-only "Fuck You" from this record: http://piratespressrecords.com/store/in ... cts_id=389

Addendum: Rancid is stupid-fun in braggadocio mode, like on that comp track.

I haven't listened to a few albums but to me they're a band who I don't really expect much growth musically. I accept that and enjoy them for what they are.

To me, Life Won't Wait was their zenith. It's been mostly downhill since, with a nice track or two scattered here and there.

I like Life Won't Wait but Wolves slays all.
So what does Marconi playing the mamba mean? "Marconi" is referring to the radio itself. It plays a deadly snake. The snake - the mamba - is slithering from the speakers. Ready to kill greedy corporations. Ready to free the world of all that is evil, and to leave behind only the youthful idealism encompassed by the tenets of rock and roll.

Indestructible is pretty great.

Dominoes is good, Skull City is one of my favourite Rancid tracks —



Hoh-onor I listened to maybe twice. Sounded kinda samey.

Yeah it's pretty golden, if a little long. But so is Life Won't Wait.
