Big fun In The Big Town

Thursday, May 24th, 2012

Just seen in the Metro free paper, this documentary from 1986 is now out on DVD.

I must admit, I’ve never seen it, although I heard about it.

Although, not as acclaimed as Henry Chalfont’s earlier ‘Style Wars’, it nonetheless is a fascinating cultural time capsule

Although, much of this is available online – you can now own a bit of hip hop history yourself, without having to wait for your PC to buffer.

A glimpse into an emerging culture, where expression & talent was still at the core, with future stars in their (much) younger days.

There’d better be extras & unseen footage – now where’s my fat laces……….

Let’s Take it Back To Tha Old Skooooool!!!!

Oh. My. Gosh.

Found this on Mixcloud – some PROPER old hip-hop/rap: genuine early 80’s stuff, by hiphopproject:
Cosm Roks based the idea of mixing tracks centering around his year of birth (1983).

For old, (semi arthritic) ex-b-boys & girls, this is a true step back in time.

Prepare to get all misty-eyed…..
