I remember the first time I heard Back to Oakland. It blew my teenage mind. Yeah, I played it to bits, too. After that, I bought each new album as they were released, through Ain't Nothin' Stoppin' Us Now, when I stopped purchasing albums for several years (I was on my own, then -- had to pay the bills). Didn't buy another until 1993, with T.O.P., which was my first TOP album on CD. They still cook (tasty Squib Cakes).
Remember playing Urban Renewal and Back to Oakland to bits,Great Album covers(I am talking Vinyl here) as well.Life and circumstances meant i really haven't followed them. recently downloaded a compilation,and wow still sounds like the first time,must get hold of more...what a fucking awesome band
I am off to see them in November in London. It cannot come soon enough. I am going to jizz at the sound of the horn section live and Rocco bringing that damn funkay shiz I vibe to. Oh boy it's gonna be heavy.
