A free Lions download

The Lions are a multiculti reggae/groove ensemble here in L.A. They’re tight, and they’ve got a FREE MP3 up at the Amoeba Music website.

Click here to hear “Sweet Soul Music” streaming on my Vox blog. This piece was recorded live during a Lions in-store appearance in February. To download it, follow this link to

Interesting side note: The singer on this track is actor Alex Désert. (He co-starred in the sitcom “Becker.”)

Here is a half-hour video of the Lions’ performance at Amoeba:

I'm a little disappointed Dave :)

Alex Desert was in PCU w/ Jeremy Piven. Why should anybody give a shit? Because when the good people of The Pit throw a party in order to raise money to save their house who plays the party...

...George Clinton and Parliment-Funkadelic.

They play

-"Give Up the Funk (Tear the Roof Off the Sucker)"

-"Erotic City"

^ How quickly I forget!

Here's "Stomp," for those who don't know.

Jon Favreau was also in that flick. Dang... 15 years ago that was.

Piven, by the way, is a real-deal funkateer. I saw him in the crowd at a Bootsy's Rubber Band show at House of Blues.

I thought that guy looked familiar (I remember when he had locks). I just didn't know his name.
