Classic Day – Like Nas

How can one of the greatest hip-hop records be followed by one of the rappers with his face on lyrical Mount Rushmore? It follows with Nas and the 1996 release It Was Written which is a step away from the overwhelmingly grimy New York…

Classic Day – Tanks and Planes

MF DOOM seems to have more aliases and pseudonyms than actual records and in the way that he carries himself through the early 90s with KMD to his solo records and joint albums lately. DOOM has had an incredibly expansive career that continues to…

Classic Day – Prime Cut

It is rare to see an 80’s musical release that achieved radio popularity hit the sites of Matt’s Music Mine, but every now and again there is this collection of cheese that strikes to the core of enjoyability and synthetic bliss. Billy Idol is…

Classic Day – To The King

To mark down a debut record in 1969 that is more recognizable and more influential than King Crimson’s In The Court Of The Crimson King would take some deep digging. Between the cover art created by Barry Godber or the sampling done by modern…

Classification on music from track to genre becomes harder and harder as the pieces and players adapt to break lines and form their own styles. The Meat Puppets were far ahead of the curve with their 1984 release, Meat Puppets II that combined a…

Classic Day – Bodega Boy
