A few years ago I was on tour with EL-P, and during said tour EL had a live band playing with him. The band featured Wilder Zobey of Chin Chin fame on keyboards. You may remember Chin Chin from earlier music blasts and their stellar live show during the Ringolevio album release party. EL also had a fellow by the name of Kareem Bunton playing bass. I didn’t know much of this Kareem fellow other than he snored like a fucking maniac and he had a hella-fied sneaker collection. During one late night drive out of the shit hole that is Albuquerque, NM the lot of us that were still up (myself, fellow hangar member Ian McMullin, Soundguy Jimmy, Wilder Zobey, Photog extradonaire and friend of the blast SeanieCameras and the fore mentioned Mr. Bunton) were all up, drunk, watching the sun come up and sharing music, some we enjoyed and some of our own. When it came time for Kareem to play something he humbly said “check this out and tell me what you think, it’s some new stuff I have been working on”. I had no idea what I was in for, but it was jaw dropping. It sounded like Black Sabbath, if Black Sabbath was chilling with Robert Johnson at the crossroads and making a deal with Beelzabub that in return for their mortal soul they get to rock the fuck out of your dick holes with the a sonic assault that makes you want to put babies in your lady and then eat some good pulled pork with no shirt on.

The Juggs are the fucking truth. I have had a rough version of this album for almost a year now and have been waiting for the day I got an email or a call from Kareem asking me to blast this fucker. Well that day is today. Christmas in April muthafuckers.
