I’ve re-ripped Suicidal Tendencies’ Lights…Camera…Revolution to my iPod.
It is wonderful.Â Rocky George plays a lead guitar like no one else I’ve ever heard.Â That’s perhaps less a comment on his unique style than on the breadth of my experience, but still.
George’s method is basically to play a constant guitar solo.Â He’s not so much participating in the song as he is commenting on what everyone else is playing.Â The drums, bass, rhythm guitar and even vocals have a unity of purpose eschewed by Rocky George’s guitar.Â He’s not there to be Chuck D, he’s there to be Flavor Flav, except dead serious.
And the music as a whole makes me want to kick a white person’s head in, which is why a young man wears Doc Martens, after all.
Finally, “Alone” is one of those songs like “Full of Grace,” “At My Funeral,” and “I Wish I Was the Moon” that grabs me by my own personal sad bits, which, though it may sound strange, is worth all the gold in the world to me.
