Ok… after some days on the road that required another week of recovery I have returned & will get back on my posting grind, as there are things afoot that the public simply must be made aware of. But before all that I wanna thank Lauren Pierro, Tone, The Problmeaddicts & all the folks who mad this year’s Bella Terra Festival possible. This weekend was further proof of my belief that the liver is evil & deserves punishment. As usual my main damey & partner in crime Johnny Durkin aka Kool DJ Amber Alert acted in collusion on the heist of several golf carts. Capers that were highlighted by a power slide into the head of security, my first pop-a-wheelie, and culminated in both myself & Durk crashing high speed (for a golf cart anyway) through the performances of two aghast fire jugglers. A spectacular moral victory for enemies of the faux arts everywhere.
Once again proving that Gurp City is a lifestyle not a gimmick, TopR, Adam Strange, DJ Amber Alert & I did a grievously hungover yet heroic 4pm Saturday set in the blazing hot sun for a few hundred damaged, yet no worse for the wear festival goers. And though playing outdoors, I for once took the occasion to not barf onstage… I know, kind of seems like a wasted opportunity. While over the course of two consecutive all nighters several pictures were taken of cohorts & party members in various embarrassing states of vulnerability & compromising positions, unfortunately they are of such low quality I am unable to post them here. We will simply have to make due with the above endearing little number of those of us who made it to 6am Sunday morning just hours before we made our escape back to Lagurdia, none the wiser.
Special thanks to MadLee for the timely airport pick-up & the clean get away in the $100K Benzo. You sir are a class act. Gurp City South wins again.
Once again the Fist Fam is back on their video grind with another single off the “Posted” LP. In a bold & decisive maneuver that no one saw coming the song is groundbreakingly titled “Drinkin” and shockingly is about the imbibing of alcoholic beverages (seriously, where do they come up with this stuff?!). The video was shot at the legendary Reitzel family estate, back home in the mountains of Western NC, which provides an actual family feel to the whole thing that I really enjoyed. My favorite part being the cameo appearances of little Cameron Smith aka Cool James aka Not Fuckin With You Nerd James’. Al Lover stays on his production grind on this one, as you could probably tell if you picked up a copy of “Posted” (available on vinyl & download here on their artist page of this site).
One blaring omission is the total lack of any appearance by the one & only Foul Mouth Jerk, but as they say “Always leave them wanting more”. The Panama Jack EP will be available for free download on Gurpcitysouth.com any day now so holla back & make sure you get a copy. Another job well done by the Fist Fam.
For those that don’t know, every Thursday from 10pm to midnight several members of the Gurp City South crew, namely myself (Foul Mouth Jerk), TopR Holiday, Adam Strange & Smidi host an internet radio show on Ashevillefm.org, appropriately known as the Worst Case Scenario. The program is basically two hours of dubious opinions, wild, baseless speculation and slanderous accusations that push the envelope of free speech to the outermost reaches of dickishness, with bits of rap music peppered liberally throughout. It’s sort of like a drunk version of Hardball meets Kool DJ Red Alert… with racist jokes. Recurring guests include a case of PBR, the head of our research department (i.e. one gossipin ass black chick) known as the Snow Shark, and a 15 y.o Hungarian boy affectionately referred to as Serbian Beiber, who serves as an intern, but whose main purpose is to retrieve beers & keep us abreast of how low the standards of behavior for teenage girls has fallen. Needless to say it’s the cutting edge in tasteless public discourse.
That being said, I have been promising on air to post highlights from the show on the site for months. And while I wouldn’t count on this now being a new, reliable occurrence on my part, I will be posting what I think to be the funnier snippets from random episodes as frequently as my feeble work ethic will allow. The current posting being an episode in which multiple members of the staff had split a bag of shrooms just before going on the air.
So without further ado…
It should be no surprise to any regular visitor of this site that Gus Cutty is keeping what we call Blue Collar Rap alive. We may not have invented this particular sub-genre, but we will surely not be shy in claiming that we did. And if we didn’t, we do it better than anyone that you think did. And Gus spends his time doing it better than most of us.
So if you suffer the indignity or pride of riding the city bus, in any city or town to get to work and back I’m sure that you will feel this jawn. As the last man standing who actually owns & listens to a discman to drown out the cacophony of human background noise with actual headphones and not earbuds it hits home for me. When I’m not ignoring current society with burnt copies of “Big Daddy Thing” I’m listening to this or shit just like it… Enjoy Fucker
As promised, The Ville Boyz are stepping on the gas as they reach the final stretch to releasing their latest full length, and stepping their game up along with it. So here is pre-album release, free single #3 “Be Somebody”. Enjoy.
