happy april fools day
I think I saw somewhere about a “live” documentary about the beastie boys with the surviving members, looks kind of interesting
I feel silly now after having heard “Beastie Boys” was supposed to be a homage or sound similar to “Bad Brains” that I didn’t know that they started in hardcore punk till one of my hardcore friends in high school told me
I taped this when it aired in 94! I also taped their performance in SNL the same year. That was badass cuz they also played Heart Attack Man that night! Probably the time a real hardcore song was ever performed on NBC!
I saw the Beastie Boys in June 1992 supporting The Rollins Band. Yes supporting!
They did 25 mins of rap & then, completely out of the blue, strapped on guitars, got behind the drums & did 20 mins of hardcore.
Absolutely incredible. It was one of those - "I was there moments".
The only Beastie Boys album I have is the compilation The Sounds Of Science: we bought that because of Sabotage and Three MCs And One DJ. There really is everything on that album: some of their early guitar punk stuff, crossover rock-hip hop hits like Fight For Your Right, straighter hip hop like Shadrach or Three MCs, jazzy instrumentals like Son Of Neckbone, a great cover of Benny And The Jets, a couple of pastiche country songs. Truly skilled musicians with an eclectic approach. Sabotage remains hard to beat though.
boys entering anarchistic states towards inner excellence
they have a deep history
Intense... that's what is is....
I can imagine all those tv viewers across the US getting smashed in the face....
At some point in the 90’s I got to see Rollins open for the Beasties, as they both opened for Bob Dylan, of all the wonderful and crazy things.
What a bizarre line-up.
Would have loved to have been there.
Saw them only once at a Free Tibet festival on Riker’s Island in, I think, 1995 and a big fan since 1988 or so.
Also RIP Yauch, damned shame. Would have been interesting what they’d have gotten up to in middle age.
