    Default New Beastie Boys Album 'The Mix Up'

    Completely Instrumental. Due out June 26. Said to have influences as diverse as The Slits, Gang Of Four and even Adrock's own BS 2000. Parts of the album have been said to sound remniscent of Pink Panther soundtracks, crossed with The Junkyard Band. There's even a sitar in there.

    The album was recorded with Keyboard Money Mark and Alfredo Ortiz. The tracklisting, from www.beastieboys.com :

    1. B For My Name
    2. 14th St. Break
    3. Suco De Tangerina
    4. The Gala Event
    5. Electric Worm
    6. Freaky Hijiki
    7. Off The Grid
    8. The Rat Cage
    9. The Melee
    10. Dramastically Different
    11. The Cousin Of Death
    12. The Kangaroo Rat

    5 Burroughs was trash on production. I just D/L'd hello nasty a few days back cuz I couldnt find my copy anywhere.

    Beasties got great ideas as far as instrumentation goes.

    True. Even if 5 boroughs wasn't to everybodys tastes, they have a fund of ideas on all fronts that most bands can't fuck with.

    No Mixmaster, and the music is all live, all the way apparently. I've read a review of it that claims parts of it are fit for sampling, but that it's different to their other instrumentals in that the new ones are extremely dense.

    Mixmaster is touring with them, when they do hip-hop sets.
