KEXP

In anticipation of our 12-hour comprehensive look at Beastie Boys 1989 album, Paul's Boutique, this Friday, we thought we'd share with you today a special edition of Review Revue featuring this groundbreaking work and see if the KCMU DJ's either bought in to the LP's initial lackluster reception or picked up immediately on its promise. But, after searching through all of our stacks, this is all we could find:

"Vinyl copy was STOLEN!! Don't steal, its a sick habit!"

Thankfully, that's no loss for you because tomorrow, from 6AM to 6PM on 90.3 FM in Seattle and KEXP.ORG worldwide, we'll have all the goods as we Step Inside Paul's Boutique and play all 115 sampled selections and more from the 15 album tracks and feature exclusive interviews with the co-producing Dust Brothers. You can expect to hear spoken word artist Lightnin’ Rod, the R&B horn band Tower of Power, Bernard Herrmann’s iconic score from Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho, and the Eagles in close proximity as we take you through perhaps the most in-depth look at this seminal work of music sampling.

Review Revue: Þeyr - As Above . . .

If you're anything like me (and who isn't?), the first Icelandic band you ever heard of was The Sugarcubes. If you were a college radio DJ in the early '80s, though, you might have gotten wind of Þeyr (pronounced "Theyr," more or less) before the rest of the U.S. got wind to the crazy stuff going...
