Back in the Day

19 10 2010

This week, we stay in Southern California for a song from 1989.

This rap act broke a lot of stereotypes and was indeed groundbreaking. It’s a group of Samoan brothers from Carson, today perhaps best known for being the city near L.A. in which the Home Depot Center (stadium of the L.A. Galaxy and Chivas USA of Major League Soccer) is located.

The brothers are the Boo-Yaa Tribe, and they played live instruments on their debut album, “New Funky Nation.” They still perform – I saw them on TV about a year ago one late night in Seattle.

Aside from the trip into my CD collection, the weather in Phoenix today was perfect. In the 80s. I could actually roll down my window and crack the sunroof. First time in five months or so. Welcome cooler temps!
