They were all just in NYC last Saturday. Unfortunately I already had tix to a different show or else I would've liked to have checked them out.
I used to be a big Suicidal fan. Saw them many times. I know Mikey is the only guy left. How'd he and his band sound? Did they play a lot of old stuff? How Will I Laugh Tomorrow is one of my favorite albums ever.
The band themselves were pretty tight, skill-wise, but the sound was off. The bass was really prevalent, and the guitars practically buried in the mix.
I chalked it up to a soundman issue at first, but they never did correct it...so maybe the band wanted it that way (?).
Mike's still a really energetic guy on stage, but his backing band surprised me as well. They were all over the place. Not quite up to the energy level of Sick Of It All (who are BEASTS on stage, and are still at the top of the game after all these years), but pretty darn impressive nonetheless.
Here's the setlist from the show...a good mixture of old and new (but nothing from the "Art Of Rebellion" or "Suicidal For Life" CDs):
"I didn't hit him too hard," Simmonds said. "I just gave him a little push that I kind of thought he over exaggerated, and it worked. He is one of the best goalies who ever played. He can do whatever he wants in this league."
I stand by my prediction of a landslide of Carter-Reagan proportions. It's common sense.
Not one single McCain voter from four years ago will vote for Obama in 2012. But Obama will lose votes from several blocs because of his horrid record: Hispanics, women, white men, Catholics, Jews, small businesspeople. It's going to cost Obama every swing state, plus more. People are going to be talking about how inaccurate most polls were.
Watch as Pennsylvania and Wisconsin fall into the Romney column. Watch New Jersey and Nevada be nail-biters.
Let's watch and see.
GHDI, laugh like Biden all you want, get ready for the shocker on Election Day. It's over.
I say Romney gets to 315 or 320, with Romney getting Pennsylvania, Ohio and Wisconsin. All these states are tight according to several polls, and I think the enthusiasm to fire Obama will be the difference that pushes all of them to Romney. Wishful thinking? We'll see.
So we can all agree it was just wishful thinking then?
