The Coup
The Coup is a political hip hop group based in Oakland, California. It formed as a three-member group in 1992 with rappers (Raymond) Boots Riley and E-Roc along with DJ Pam the Funkstress. E-Roc left on amicable terms after the group's second album, but appears on the track "Breathing Apparatus" on The Coup's third album, Steal This Album. The group is now a duo. The Coup, part of the sub-genre of political hip hop, is politically radical and Marxist in their music, and align themselves with other radical hip-hop groups like dead prez.

    Album Review: Oh Captain, My Captain

    Oh Captain My Captain - Recklessly She Split The Sea. Releases November 10th, 2008Annie Marie, the second track, first song on Oh Captain My Captain's, "Recklessly She Split The Sea", interrupts a cheesy intro, that couldn't be any worse if they had called it "Opening Credits"; oh wait, they did.. Annie Marie is a sad pathetic song about a wimp.. It describes a girl that cheats on a boy and of course he's devastated.

    gkowash Dude if it says "ask a punk" then just look it up on facebook, you can usually find the address there. And if you can't find it, email whoever's hosting the show. Some people just don't want to put their address out on the internet for everyone to see, it's not a big deal.

    Show-bot! if it's not 'axe a punk' then people don't post shows at all then there's no way to find out if you're not popular. Axe a punk postings allow you to see that your favorite band is playing somewhere soon and then ask then where it is. We tried for many years to not do this - but that's what people post. (...and everybody gets mad at us either way) I'd argue that not posting anything altogether is the more pretentious option.
    -11/8/2014 11:49:13 AM
    HAYWOOF Alirght I'm just gonna say it. This "ask a punk" shit is pretentious, annoying and makes it so people that aren't popular or don't give a shit sometimes can't find shows.
