Desert Isle Discs 

Brian Marsh, guitarist for Broke by Monday, picks his five essentials.

1. Tommy Fox, Reggae CD

It's a burn CD that WCSB DJ-musician Tommy Fox made of what a reggae band should ultimately cover. This thing has been played at least once a week for the last year.

2. Part One Tribe, Live 2005

Friends of ours played an incredible show with us at this shithole (the Old Miami) in Detroit, and the guy recorded it for 20 bucks. It's flat-out mesmerizing.

3. Sublime, 40 Oz to Freedom

Just plain raw as hell. Eric Wilson is a machine, and Bradley could write the best songs out of the simplest of ideas.

4. Boogie Down Productions, Criminal Minded

Every time I hear it, it reminds me of a summer in the projects. We kicked this record forever and then some.

5. Jimi Hendrix, Axis: Bold as Love

Jimi was the best player ever, and this is a masterpiece.

Broke by Monday, with the Facials and Shakedown. Saturday, September 16, at the Hi-Fi Concert Club.
