PROPHETS OF RAGE
Hollywood 2016 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Palladium, Hollywood, CA; June 3, 2016. Fairly to very good audience recording.

consequenceofsound.net:

In 2008, Rage Against the Machine crashed the Republic National Convention, performing a capella versions of “Bulls on Parade” and “Killing in the Name” on the lawn of Minnesota’s state capital. Tom Morello plans to do something similar with his new supergroup Prophets of Rage. Speaking to Bloomberg Politics (via Rolling Stone), Morello revealed that the band will descend on the Republic National Convention taking place in Cleveland this July. Along with Morello, Prophets of Rage consists of Rage Against the Machine bassist Tim Commerford and drummer Brad Wilk along with Chuck D of Public Enemy and Cypress Hill’s B-Real.

The late Muhammad Ali didn’t need the confines of a boxing ring to fight his battles. He fought them everywhere. The same can be said of Chuck D. On Friday (June 3), after the Public Enemy MC finished the opening song “Prophets of Rage,” which began the second - and currently last - scheduled show the group of the same name is playing, he lifted his hand in salute.

“We raise a fist and pray for Muhammad Ali.”

Like the great Ali, Chuck D sees no boundaries between day job and personal identity. As long as he has a platform, he will use it against whatever force of darkness needs kept at bay. On Friday night in Los Angeles, at a 5,000 hardcore attended Rage Against the Machine (RATM) concert, the Palladium was already jumping around to House of Pain before the band even came on. There’s no doubt, however, that the man of the hour is Chuck D.

The initial buzz of the alarm clock came on May 31 as the Prophets of Rage announced they’d make their first appearance at the Whisky A-Go-Go on the Sunset Strip… If the Whisky was Prophets of Rage’s cell phone-less underground bunker committee, the Palladium - at 10 times the capacity - is the public rally they’ve been preparing for. Looking down from the balcony, the entire floor is a physical collision course, as the crowd charge at each other like newly liberated cattle, inspired by Morello’s solos, which he performs while doing the splits, setting fire to his own loins before scorching everyone else’s. On Rage’s “Bombtrack” and “Testify,” his playing isn’t furious, it’s infuriated. His licks are a catalyst for three circle pits so forceful they could power a shuttle launch. Chuck D, with free reign of the stage, responds to them with samurai lunges, windmills and repeated pogo-ing on his axes.

  3. Amen brother Ali was the greatest,only wish Cosell were here to put his passing into perspective .He knew the Champ so well and had such a way with words Maybe Dick Cavett will make a statement as he and Ali also shared some special moments.unfortunatly Merv,Mike Douglas Johnny Carson and others who knew him are also gone so we cant get their takes, Have listened to many people talking about what his passing meant to them but its just not the same hearing people who wernt even born when he was on top discuss him,They cant possibly understand as you had to have been there at the time to truly get it

    By Chuck in Texas on Jun 5, 2016

  4. @Adam - I second what you say about him being an icon. I wasn’t a boxing fan, but Ali was one of those 70’s icons / people important to our generation, just like bowie, harlem globetrotters, john Lennon, Sesame Street, etc.. great cultural & artistic things and people that inspired us. Gradually they are all slipping away, some already gone long ago, some will go soon, all falling victim to time itself. Long may they run and may today’s generation learn from them, ‘cos they sure won’t learn from Bieber and Cyrus.

  5. How many people today would give up almost 4 years of their athletic prime plus millions of dollars for their principles and beliefs .Had he not fought the draft and joined the military he never would have had to fight so it was indeed a matter of principle.He was never really the same fighter after that forced layoff,His speed and reflexes were not the same.Yet he was still the best and won on guile and experence to make up for his diminished physical skills.Frazier would have been desposed of within 6 rounds pre layoff ,Like most i also remember all of his tv appearences ,Remember him debating William F Buckley about how White Americans were the reason for all the social injustice in the world and how he didnt owe anything to the white slave masters ,as we got deeper into the 70s he became a beloved figure a big contrast to the late 60s when he was so polarizing and radical.If anyone remembers that first Frazier fight ,White America and conservatives were for Joe while blacks and liberals were for Ali it was truly a mirror into what the country was like at the time.Also agree that it is strange hearing people in their 20s and 30s comment about Ali when they really only know what they have read or seen on youtube

  6. Awesome post. Thanks BigO. It looks like tracks 202 & 203 have their names switched up

  7. 2016 a horrible year so far.so many legends gone.also grew up watching ali master boxer and showman

    By Roger Dodger on Jun 6, 2016

  8. Yep ,very bad year so far,Still grieving over Bowie ,Glenn Frey,Paul Kantner among othersand while Ali wasnt a singer or musician he trancended boxing and sports ,check out a youtube video with Ali and Sam Cooke singing a funny duet together.agree that his charisma and presence more than boxing were what made him,back in the late 60s thru the late 70s he was on tv on various talk shows all the time,Remember a Mike Douglas show where Ali and Sly from Sly and the family Stone got into an argument about race in America This show i believe was 72 when racial tensions were still very much present.Dont have anyone close to an Ali today ,also miss his interviews with Howard Cosell who sadly also passed away over 20 years ago

  9. The day we met The Champ: My brother Bill and I were huge wrestling fans, he more so than I but we both enjoyed going to the matches and following our favorites on TV. Mike Limuti, our neighbor across the street, ran the lights at the Dinner Key Auditorium and often brought us along. We could hardly afford to buy tickets so that was a real treat.
    One time our dad was also there. Early in his life dad had done some amateur boxing and via that connection knew Angelo Dundee. Dundee also attended the Italian-American club our family was active in. I even recall Dundee coming over to our house one time. Dundee was Ali’s trainer but he also promoted wrestling matches. A larger than life figure with his hand in several lucrative pies. On this particular night he and my dad ran into each other at the wrestling matches. I don’t think they were great friends but they certainly knew and seemed to like one another. Despite the alcoholism and violence that dominated our home life, outwardly my dad, when sober, was a very likable and funny guy. After talking to our dad Angelo came up to a group of us kids and said “you boys want to meet the champ?” Did we ever! So a few minutes later Ali, who must have been there in a luxury seat, came down, shook our hands, and showed a bit of the magic he had with people, doing his famous boxing poses and “faster than the eye can see” moves. I remember being enthralled with how readily he could entertain. A great boxer but beyond that a greater figure in the world.

  10. James , a great story and typical of the charisma and presence Ali possessed , they’ll will never be another Ali , as earlier stated he trancended boxing and sports he was much bigger than both , he was a world figure in the same vein as Mandella ,MLK , Malcolm X and Gandi , he just also happens to be the greatest boxer of all time , boxing though was only a small part of what he meant to the world what he meant socially and politically meant so much more , when discussing important 20 th century figures , he’s up there with those others mentioned plus he was funny as hell and had more presence than anyone ever , he stood out regardless of who he was with or around
