I just like the possibilities it creates. I wouldnt pay to see a hologram of a band but I would do for a movie

I think a movie is different. I'd be sweet with going to see Pink Floyd's The Wall or something equally epic that uses that type of tech.

But the more i think about it as a 'live' medium, the more disrespectful it seems - from a dead musicians perspective, and also from an audience point of view.

As a technology in itself, i think it's seriously cool. I suppose i'm really just not into using it to resurrect the dead.

Any of you crazy rap and hip-hop lovin' mofos heard of Death Grips?

Been getting into thair latest release, The Money Store. Check out "I've Seen Footage";


Disclaimer; do not watch this vid if you are prone to photosensitive seizures!

Yeah i really like it, it's some twisted shit, for sure. Nice to see a major record label supporting this kind of crazy, manic, anti-mainstream kind of stuff.

Be interested to hear what y'all think of it

C'mon! Don't keep me in suspense! Which one didn't you like?

It was that 80's crap wasn't it? Or the dubstep? Can't have been Death Grips! That shit is awesome!

Death Grips was not my fave no, but neither was that dubstep.

So cheesy 80's for the win? Yeah, it's hard to NOT like that. The whole Lovelock album is very 80's. But super-cool too. I love how the New Musical Express described it "cosmic-disco-meets-yacht-rock".

The last track on the album, Deco Delight, is just as awesome.

Death Grips is a 'grower', particularly the music - very messed up indeed. Dense, and kinda inaccessible in a lot of ways, but the more i listen to it, the more i like it.

I do like a bit of dubstep, even the likes of Skrillex. I thought the skills in that vid were pretty tight.

I can appreciate dubstep for what it is, but some of it is just SHIT, I've always liked electronic music even when I was younger, I remember going to see Pitch Black way back in the 90's it blew my mind.

Yeah, i've heard a few of their tunes, and i have to admit, i just don't get it; it all just seems so pedestrian and generic. I must be missing something.

I prefer the real Subtract. Kiwi's too;

Sad news about Adam "MCA" Yauch from the Beastie Boys passing away. Only 47 too; far too young to die. I've been hammering Licensed to Ill last couple of days since i heard the news. Out of respect and rememberance.
