i have not heard uh, anything since hello nasty i think but the beasties were staple listening pretty much everywhere in high school and are thus hardwired somewhere in the fog of adolescent nostalgia. RIP :(

Peppermint Patty Hearst (VegemiteGrrl), Friday, 4 May 2012 17:24 (1 year ago) Permalink

I actually just called a friend who is probably the biggest B Boys fan I know and left her a message saying I'm thinking of her which sounds so weird and lame but I know she's going to be devastated.

So so sad.

wolf kabob (ENBB), Friday, 4 May 2012 17:24 (1 year ago) Permalink

I missed the story from last month that he wouldn't be able to attend the RRHOF induction, which I guess would've at least been a strong indicator that something like this was around the corner. As it is, though, I feel like I've been slapped with a flounder.

Genuinely horrible, and like everyone I know on facebook/twitter is just overflowing with earnest grief. This is the most unexpected and tragic music death news in a long time. Gutted.

The bit about Gratitude made me well up.

Sick Mouthy (Scik Mouthy), Wednesday, 23 May 2012 20:15 (1 year ago) Permalink

Love those interviews - there's one with Mike D too. Great that they pay homage to him (prompted by Fricke) by telling these little specific stories about tracks. It's easy to slip into the broad sweep when you're summing up a life but reading about something geeky, like how he made the beat for Paul Revere is so much more powerful to me.

Westwood posted this home video from the Raising Hell tour in London, and it is INCREDIBLE: Drunk Beasties, LL Cool J swapping the mic on Slow & Low, MCA stagediving straight onto the floor, Lyor Cohen diving after him to smack anyone who touches him, Russell Simmons rapping along with his head uncovered, LL AND LYOR DOING THE WHOP TOGETHER:
