Hustlin Since 91

Backyard Band – Wanksta (from Blackout Sunrise unknown year)

Finally grabbed a copy of the DC issue of Stop Smiling, one of the better magazines out there today. It came with a nice CD of Backyard Band bootlegs including a cover of a Pack song thats hilarious. Andrew Noz did a nice job on his Go Go primer, and the Anwan Glover interview is great. Photography is top notch too. Due to walking around today with headphones blaring conga funk, I was reminded of one of my favorite Backyard Band tracks. I love the way they emulate the ice cream man sound of Curtis’ jumpoff single, and the drumming is sick as ever.

Eventually, I’m going to put up every Backyard Band song I have on here.
