    FYI to Jill and others interested,

    I spotted the Jets to Brazil in the list this week and thought to pass along that Blake Schwarzenbach, singer & writer of Jets as well as Jawbreaker, has somewhat recently gotten back into music and perfroming. He hooked up with another punk Legend Aaron Cometbus to form the new band Thorns of Life.

    Here is this video from Blake Schwarzenbach in NYC on his own.

    As for the new band this link is the first of four songs posted on Youtube from a recent LA show can give you an idea on his new stuff. And for a change the live audio is pretty good in quality.

    “99 Problems” – DJ Danger Mouse
    “La Vie Est Belle” – MC Solaar
    “Shoulder Lean” – Young Dro
    “Vox” – Sarah McLachlan
    “Songs in Red and Gray” – Suzanne Vega

    “Nothing” – Edie Brickell & New Bohemians
    “Contact” – The Police
    “One of These Things First” – Nick Drake
    “Prove You Wrong” – Prong

    Considering the percentage of music on my iPod consisting of Rap, that the first 3 songs came up rap songs is a statistical anomoly.
