Asian Dub Foundation: Enemy of my Enemy
Okay - so this is not a review. I don't have the album. And if you read below, you'll see that I can't even beg for my faithful readers to get it for me. Yet.
The new album from the not-so-small massive Asian Dub Foundation is available on iTunes [only click that if you have iTunes open] now. Sadly, there's no U.S. album release date listed on their website, so we're either limited to buying the e-version of the album (environmentally more sound, but I want to HOLD the new album), paying more than $30 for the UK or Japan release (plus shipping), or just sit around waiting for a U.S. release. Damn it. Yet another reason why it blows to be brown in the U.S. We gotta wait for the ADF releases.
By the way how many people are in this collective now? Boy, talk about massive. I think that it's larger than a cricket team, but you gotta give props to the growing diversity in the group, both musically and literally. The brothers ADF rock. I wonder what their stage show is like now. I saw them in 1999 at the Bowery Ballroom, and I swear, Deeder, at 19 and thinner than a rail, was about to jump from stage to balcony at some guy who was giving them the finger. Fierce. And righteous with the work that they have stayed true to in the underserved youth communities of the UK.
Check them out if you haven't already. And let me know if you hear about a U.S. release date. Meanwhile, I'll have to listen to the :30 tidbits that iTunes affords me. Maybe I should drink more Pepsi in the interest of getting free caps enough to buy the e-(al)bum.
Urgh. Pepsi bad.
Note: The ADF that I'm talking about here is this ADF. Not this ADF. Scary.
