Watching now! Thanks, Venus. So that's the gig you were at? 8)


Yep, those clips were taken at the gig I went to. :D

Haha, I noticed the Flash Harry reference in that review too. :lol:

Heehee I noticed that too. Hopefully the author knew of what he spoke, and was complimenting the very talented Barnaby on humbly avoiding being the star and being content to be an equal member of a brilliant band, allowing each member to shine.


Ditto that!

I finally had time to check on my order of the Specials since I hadn't heard anything, and the email containing the link to my purchase had gone to my spam folder and the link was only live until the 7th. I've sent them an email, but what a pain. :? I don't know which is worse: the spam itself, or my spam folder eating important emails. I never remember to check it.

Ooh, unfortunately, it's really a must. Every day, I do quick scan of spam just for that reason. I've found notifications for WTF posts there before, so they really cannot be trusted! :hammer:

I hope there is a special hell for spammers. :evil:

Blast! My email bounced back. :? Now I've sent a message through the BS website, but I'm getting discouraged. Only 2 days to download? :cry: Why didn't I write the date on my calendar. :bang:

Congrats to the Black Seeds.

The Black Seeds Sow Messages of Hope
by Shop Keeper October 18, 2010 - 10:02 am

Packed with positive messages, powerful dubs and pulsing and quick-paced rhythms, The Black Seeds are already being heralded as part of “the forefront of the New Zealand reggae/roots scene” — and damned if I knew there was even such a thing — but after hearing this 8-piece, all of whom provide a spectacular cacophony of drums, keyboards, bongos, trumpets, and one of the best voices in modern reggae, I’m on board.

From the Wailers-tinged, slowed-down, brassed-up groove of “Send a Message” to the more Specials-ized “Rotten Apple,” and the Funkadelic-ish “Afrophone”, you’ve got a reggae group which has wisely — if brazenly — chosen to wear their influences much like they wear their emotions: unabashed, on their sleeves, and touting a hopeful outlook on life in songs like “Love is a Radiation”, “One Step at a Time, ” and “Strugglers,” which hopes that the listener will “give what they can” and be a contributing member of society even throughout their own respective hardships.

The point is: This is great, if somewhat rehashed, modern reggae, and you can get a little of the new and a lot of the old right now on Red Bull Music Academy Radio. As a random side note, Flight of the Conchords member Bret McKenzie is one of the original members of The Black Seeds. It’s kind of interesting to hear his somewhat-more-serious side, and hearing yet another facet of his multi-talented musical personality come out.

Thanks for posting that, 4ever :)

Posted on Black Seeds FB Page. This is an interview and live acoustic set with The Black Seeds on Radio NZ 8) :
http://www.radionz.co.nz/audio/national ... lack_seeds


Ooh, I know a few of you are hoping to go to SXSW next year so let's hope they get their application in on time for it. :)

Damn, didn't get to hear what Mike had to say about what Bret is currently working on but I assume he was talking about Bret's involvement in The Muppets Movie.

Charming interview! I love those guys. I don't know who shushed him, (was it Mike?) but I like how the interviewer tried to get the scoop on Bret out of him anyway. :lol: I think I heard at least one Seed who hadn't heard about the Simpsons gig, but I wonder if they were serious about B & J doing more "guest appearances on major American shows". :D

"...Bret's small side project, "Flight of the Conchords"..." :roll2:

They sounded wonderful! Turn it Around was so smooth. 8) and So True! :heart:
