Beastie Boys Check your Head

LTW : An obvious influence on GLC, the Beastie Boys turned the frat boy rap into an art form with this album that was essential listening a few months after its release when people suddenly realised that the Beastie Boys had ‘grown up’. There was a time when everywhere you went you would hear the songs played over and over.

Egg : By the time this album came out in Britain no one wanted to like the Beastie Boys so it went under a lot of peoples radar, me and my mate Canns would drive around in his Orange mini listening to this whilst trying to be profesional skateboarders, sometimes we would go to a local underpass and stand in front the convex mirror at the end of it to recreate the fish eye lens that Beasties used in loads of videos. If ouy dont like at least one track on this record I will never buy you a pint……ever. MCA RIP.
