    I can’t stop watching this video. There are so many moments of MCA’s brilliant energy captured within. Sigh. Fuck cancer.

    Thank you MCA.

    And Cancer, you can go fuck yourself.

    Right now, I’m listening to their least-celebrated album “In Sound From Way Out”. It lacks almost all of the typical bombast associated with their mainstream stuff, but has still earned a place in my heart. 

    It’s also the unofficial soundtrack to PRI and NPR. Pour one out every time you hear Groove Holmes as background music…

    Xeni  – my sentiments entirely. I grew up with this band.
    My thoughts go out with you, too. My daughter has the same condition – and I still can’t bring myself to say the word.

  5. had/have cancer (still don’t have the right words for it) and in tears now thinking about how much it f*n sucks for everyone involved.
    thank you Adam for everything you created and inspired!
    Xeni – my thoughts are with you as you battle now!

    Thank you for posting this, Xeni.  Adam was a great talent.

  8. Thanks, Xeni. Keep fighting.

    I loved their Minor Threat covers. Heck I love all their stuff. One of my inspirations for sure. Throwing Paul’s Boutique on the turntable now…..

    y’all ever notice that the “egg raid on Mojo” lyrics were reprised on Paul’s Boutique’s “Egg Man,” except they say Haze instead of Mojo.

    Cooky Puss just came on my itunes lol

    I love that Mike D says if the Beastie Boys had finished after Polly Wog Stew they would have felt the project was complete, and that everything afterwards was ‘gravy’. What a lot of delicious, delicious gravy!

    Fuck Cancer.

    You got this, Xeni.
