Love the TP series- best racing on the water at the moment.


In Topic: The Most Under Rated Rock and Roll Bands of all time.

An underrated genre of rock music is Rai music, mostly from Algeria, but also from some much more strict fundamentalist countries. It's straight ahead rebellious punk rock in spirit, men and women singing about screwing, drinking and partying, but within their Islamic world. If rock and roll from the fifties and sixties was about rebellion, then the torch has been passed to the Rai artists. Many of these guys ended up having to move to France because they couldn't live safely in their own countries (and sing in French rather than Arabic to sell records). There are always some religious assholes out there who try to kill rock & roll.

 

 

 

The bad boy of the Rai music scene is Rachid Taha. I did an album cover design for Cheb Khaled.

 

 

Away from Rai, I would add Powderfinger and The Datsuns.

 

 

 

 

And, of course, these guys.......

Nothing screams 'ramadan in Abu Dhabi' like an Eastern Orthodox baby christening ceremony.

Those on a budget could pick up Nirvana for $295,000.

For that kind of price, aren't you better off getting Green Dragon or something similar?

 

 

You're right, they're very similar.

 

Ok. I meant, "if the idea is to race".

 

On which boat would you have more sailing fun?

 

 

 

Indeed, I would prefer to race Green Dragon, but if I wanted a time-warp back to the 80s surrounded by dark wood and red velour then Nirvana would do nicely.
