1989 Another Summer, Sound Of The Funky Drummer

Here’s today’s post which didn’t publish this morning for some unknown reason.

The ultimate extension of Keith LeBlanc’s 1983 Malcolm X record was this, the motherlode of righteous hip hop, the pinnacle of Public Enemy’s career, the greatest protest record of them all- Fight The Power. One record pulling together the history of the civil rights movement, the upsurge in interest in Malcolm X, Spike Lee’s film making, The Bomb Squad’s screaming, pummeling production and Chuck D’s angriest, most on-point lyrics (the verse that goes ‘Elvis was a hero to most but he never meant shit to me, straight out racist that sucker was simple and plain, motherfuck him and John Wayne, people get ready ‘cos I’m black and I’m proud, I’m hyped and I’m amped, most of my heroes don’t appear on no stamps’ is as good as it gets). Again not on the hard drive but do you want the full seven minute version of the video? Yeah, boyeee!

  1. Yes! One of THE great records of all time. More power than a thousand thrash metal bands playing simultaneously at full volume. And the video… jeez, they don’t make them like that anymore…
