this was so, so, so good. Nash really is an excellent writer.

Yeah, I thought it was a good history.

As someone who benefited somewhat from the doors opened by acts like the Beasties and 3rd Bass, I read this piece with particular interest. And it was great to see Nash mention the great Sam Sever, one of the more underrated producers of rap's golden age. Years later, when Regenerated Headpiece was mounting its case, it was Sever who kindly booked us into a series of gigs at Don Hill's, a club better known for booking punk and hardcore acts than white rappers. We haven't forgotten his kindness.

"The video contains content from UMG who has blocked in your country on copyright grounds." Is that Universal?

I am getting this message a lot now for the videos you post. Big bummer. I can usually find them elsewhere, but it's a real pain. Hulu are also blocking a lot of content we used to enjoy. They are in Japan but their line up here sucks. They are serving shit that was on terrestrial TV decades ago, like Allie McBeal, 24, etc. What a scam.

I am left with no choice but to break the law.
