NYT said:Michael Diamond (a k a Mike D) and Adam Horovitz (Ad-Rock), the surviving members of the hip-hop group, have signed a deal with Spiegel & Grau, an imprint of the Random House Publishing Group, for a book celebrating their history and aesthetic. A title has not been chosen, but it is planned to come out in fall 2015, the publisher is expected to announce this week.
I've been listening to Paul's Boutique a TON lately. Aside from the dated pop culture references, which you can't gripe about too much, it's an incredible album. Top 10 album for me, probably top 5. Hello Nasty also still does it for me
You do know that "Sabotage" was a homage and an anthem the group wanted to record to their fans, musicians, and critics that they started out being a punk band or were influenced by the CBGB classic Bowery punk bands of the late 1970's Ramones, Television, New York Dolls, The Talking Heads, and later on Fear.I didn't love the more "rock" sounds they did. IMO they were more innovative/creative, maybe even to the point I would call them "progressive" when they built their sounds out of samples, loops and layers. That's why I keep going back to Paul's Boutique and Hello Nasty instead of Ill Communication or Check Your head. And I mean, I am a rock/metal guy, it's not like I don't dig guitars. They just did the other side of it better. JMO of course.
