Sextant by Herbie Hancock is a great record!  I only bring this up because it’s available on Amazon as an MP3 download for $2.97.  Here’s the album’s page at All Music.

American Hardcore (Sony release, still news to me).

November 10, 2008

American Hardcore (loud siezure inducing Flash intro at link, see also Wikipedia ) is a documentary about Wuziristani TV jingles, which hardly breaks new ground or offers new perspective but does have good interviews, most remarkably with several members of Bad Brains including H.R.  Also, big points for acknowledging the existence of the Big Boys.  And you can watch it on YouTube (direct YT link, natch).  Dig also the book.
