Last thing I heard is Pam still DJs and owns a catering company. Boots did that thing with the guitarist of Rage Against the Machine. I live in the Bay…I don't think they've played in a while but I could be wrong.. Pretty sure Boots still does all his community organizing/political stuff out here.

It was interesting mix of music and multi-stage performance art. I believe it's a yearly thing.

It was released on the heels of his involvement with "Occupy: Oakland." Decent enough, but skewed a little too rock/punk for my tastes. There was some decent stuff on it though.

Probably time for the, to drop something else. Although these days they're taking four and five year breaks between albums.

For Boots at least.

I didn't like The Coup's last album. As someone else said... too punk, too rock for me.

He's a very underrated rapper IMO. I haven't dug the direction they've gone post album 3. Those first 3 records are some of my favorites from the 90s.

he's got a unique voice, got flow, complex lyrics, great song concepts... all of that. "Me and Jesus the Pimp...." is the greatest story rap of all time IMHO.

At the Jazz Cafe...it was unreal. I don't know if I've ever seen an emcee bring that much energy to the stage like Boots did. Man, it was unreal. Definitely worth seeing him/them if they ever come through your town.

I haven't checked out the most recent album, but Pick a Bigger Weapon had some great tracks on it. Boots verse on My Favorite Mutiny is one of my all-time favorite verses.

there comes a time in every mans life when he's gotta handle shit up on his own Can't depend on friends to help you in a squeeze, please they got problems of their own---slim kid3
