Bredman, how does Mano Negra compare to Manu Chao's "solo" work? I've never heard them, but do like Manu Chao.

I notice I neglected to post my consumption of Glengoyne Scottish Oak and 311's From Chaos that occurred between my two posts above.

All four albums are very good, the earlier stuff is more punky, and the later has more ska (but they are all that blend of punk/latino/ska). If you're familiar with a lot of Manu Chao's work then you will recognise most of Mano Negra, as they are mostly the same songs, with the same titles, just reworked and mellowed slightly.

Let me take you back to a time when hair bands ruled. Of course many of the bands didn't survive the shaving. Kix Blow My Fuse.

Got some new (well NOS) tubes for the Copland at last, and by consequence i got a whole new CD collection. Listened to Abigail Washburn's Sparrow Quartet, Manu Chao Clandestino, and Simon Mayor Manolinquents. Also plenty of Bob Dylan, Pink Floyd, and Doc Watson.
