    Yo. T-Bird!!! I remember when Z-trip used to play around here in Phoenix. He was definitely into the Rock thing, mixing up Rush, Zeppelin, Pink Floyd, Janes Addiction, and Ac/dc, with Hip hop. But even though he's got turntable skills. I thought his music wasn't as eclectic as Larry Levan of Paradise Garage days. You'd never here a Fela Kuti or Hugh Masekela tune. I luv how he'd mix things like Rolling Stones "Miss You" and The Clash's "The Magnificent Seven dub". Or even Bozz Scaggs' "Lowdown". Larry was one of the best!!!!!!

    Fave 60's-70's Rock/Punk tunes to play in a set:
    The Clash- Radio Clash or Magnificent Seven dub
    Ian Dury & The Blockheads- Hit me with your Rhythm stick.
    The Specials- Ghostown
    The Stooges- Dirt
    Colosseum- Elegy
    United States of America- Coming down

    i was telling nat (rhythmlove) about one of my dj
    partners of yore that used to rock black sabbath tunes
    in his set back when z-trip was still living in az
    (and i didn't know who z was--although i had his break
    record!). you've got to set it up properly, and come
    out of it right. that's just not my sound, to
    suddenly drop things in. the (hard) rock thing is
    almost more of a novelty now (although it's not really
    novel any more). besides, if i did that, i would get
    accused of biting z's thang...
