And you can hear two of the songs (unfortunately not this one, due to some, er, language issues) on WYLA 97.5 FM.
Sometimes Straight to Hell is Reggae.
Tab is an awesome guy. He and his band always put on a great show. He is very comical and interacts so well with his fans. I have seen him MANY times and plan on seeing him everytime he comes to the NY/NJ/PA areas. In fact I am going out to Vegas to the Big Blues Bender to see him play. I truly enjoy his music. One of the best out there.
Why would someone downvote DMB Dubstep?
Prob. Ian would not want you to do a Fugazi cover band and if you did you better not make any money or charge for your show.
Yea, I know, I know.
I got a bad mouth.
always talkin shit haha
You're right. I can't be what I was so I better start being just what I am.
can't sit idly by, mat. you gotta fight for what you wanna be
"Charleston sure does love a good tribute concert."
And yet, every single time I mention my Fugazi cover band idea, all I get is crickets.

"So no threats of violence from the Christian community?"
There's plenty of psychological threats right here in these comments from "Christians".
So no threats of violence from the Christian community?
"Any mention of big local music support should probably include WYLA FM 87.5, which plays almost entirely local music 24/7."
Actually, any mention of big local music support should probably include WYLA FM >97.5<
which is what my fat fingers meant to type originally.
I'm a huge Susto fan, not just because their music is so damn good, but because Justin is living out his life through his music. He's all in... the good, the bad and the ugly. He holds nothing back. His Christian faith, or should I say "struggles" are all through their album, "Susto". They are a central theme. " Black River Gospel", "Black Jesus" and "Motorcycle Club" all are either direct or metaphorical Christian themes.
As a Christian, I love his brilliance and fearlessness in the way of approaches tough metaphysical questions. This is the point. Whether consciously or unconsciously, Justin Osborne is living out his faith through his songs, looking for truth and meaning and that is what great music is all about. Traditional Christians certainly might take offense with his "liberties" like the "Chillin with Jesus" song and video, but I see more going on here. Is Justin running from his "calling"? Is he trying to connect with his earthy, secular humanist fans...or is he asking the question, "what if we could be chilling on a beach with Jesus'? There is truth in every joke. Isn't he saying what he really wants to do is to be comfortable with Christ, chilling on the beach with a beer in his hand? Isn't that want we all want?
I have no doubt about Justin's pent up anger. I also have no doubt about his faith. Like each of us, he is a work in progress and a child of God. His music begs the question what do you believe? Until you can get people to open their mind and heart to that question, there can be no salvation. Preach on Brother Justin!
Isn't it a comfort knowing without a doubt....
