Bad Brains – The Omega Sessions

Sorry for being silent for a while. Been on vacation out of town. I’m glad my long silence haven’t kept you from this site though. It seems to be having quite a number of hits even when it’s inactive for some time now. But still only a fewer comments…come on guys, a few lines will do so spare a few seconds. = >

Back from slumber I still feel a little bit lazy, post-vacation syndrome, so I borrowed this review from another site. Good review and it has a pretty good description of the featured album.

“1997’s five-track OMEGA SESSIONS EP is a good choice for a short introduction to the Bad Brains’ early, influential hardcore/ska direction. Although the songs were recorded 17 years prior to this official release, time has not dulled the intensity of these performances in the slightest. Such early hardcore classics as “At the Movies” and “Attitude” are featured, as are the cool ska sounds of “I Luv I Jah” and the raging “I Against I”–which would later serve as the title track of the Bad Brains’ exceptional 1986 album.”

  1. One of my favorite Bad Brains releases.
    Stay Close to me is a gem, and the version of At The Movies is fucking killer.
