DOWNLOAD: Bad Brains - Big Take Over (MP3)

Bad Brains' HR @ Sasquatch

Bad Brains played an inspired set on the main stage, sailing from sultry dub reggae into raging hardcore as if the two were meant for each other. They’re the only band who could make that leap, and it’s great having them back. It was awesome hearing classic tracks like “Supertouch” and “Banned in DC” coming from the legendary quartet, played with a passion and ease that suggested they are very real and very glad to be here. HR stood unmoving at the mic, raising an occasional fist but mostly crooning and crowing as the band thrashed in the background. It was the only reggae-fied vibe at Sasquatch! this year and the sound fully suited the setting. [the stranger]
AND.....
Bad Brains added some dub, raggae and punk to the day. The influential band was high energy and high impact. I was told Members of System of A Down were video taping the performance. [seattlepi]

Good News. can't wait for the NYC boat trip! I was at CB's when Bad Brains ripped it last year. Yeah, HR the happy crooner and all. I'm bringin' at least $250 bucks-and my one hitter. Can anyone give me the skinny on these Rocks Off cruises? Also who's opening for the band? I can't find shit on that!

Is the band playing songs off the new album? Anyway as much as HR has changed from his energetic, volatile,hyper-kinetic rasta days of the 80's you gotta admit the mojo is incredible when he, earl, dj, and doc get together.
