H.R. 

Once described by The Village Voice as "James Brown gone berserk," Bad Brains frontman H.R. ("Hunting Rod") is an enigmatic rasta personality fueled by the legendary D.C. hardcore scene. His solo efforts for SST Records embraced reggae of a mellower sort than the punk mashups that made Bad Brains a cult favorite, infusing funky tracks with Jah shout-outs and human-rights slogans. H.R. hits the road solo (with a backing band) in advance of the April release of a new Brains album, titled Build a Nation.
