News from Rhythm Ruckus

I was flattered and happy to see that I'm quoted in the very first sentence of the Rhythm Ruckus bio on their myspace:

"Rhythm Ruckus has been called "the closest thing to Slayer that Vermont hip-hop will ever see." From an inauspicious complex nestled in the abdomen of Vermont's lush green mountains, Dr. Caucasian and Scribe1 dispense serrated infotainment from the barren, shrieking maw of Generation Dead. MSNBC's "Current Magazine" says "their gritty, experimental music represents a re-emergence of raw, socially conscious hip-hop." Their new LP, due in early 2008, is a sprawling meditation on rural existence, confusion, rebellion, depravity, joy, and ruin. It includes guest appearances from Kool G Rap, Vast Aire of Cannibal Ox, Sticman of Dead Prez, Cottonmouth TX and Chris Ballew of the Presidents of the United States of America. Their last gig was a sold-out hometown show."

Also, Scribe1 has a free EP out called "I'm Leaving You for Hawaii" -- apparently my dudes haven't discovered mediafire or winzip, cuz you can download all the individual tracks, not the whole album at once.

Also, something's going on here with Judas Booth. Time will tell.
