In 1981, Beastie Boys, then consisting of Adam Yauch (aka MCA) on bass, drummer Kate Schellenbach (later of Luscious Jackson), guitarist John Berry (of Big Fat Love), and Mike Diamond (aka Mike D) on the mic, made their debut at Yauch’s seventeenth birthday party. After releasing one of the first New York Hardcore records, the 1982 EP Pollywog Stew, Beastie Boys recorded their first foray into Hip Hop the following year, The Cookie Puss, replacing Berry with Adam Horovitz (aka Ad-Rock). Their next recording, Rock Hard/Beastie Groove, was produced by Rick Rubin as the second record released on Def Jam. Their first full-length album, Licensed to Ill, was the first rap album to hit number one and has since sold approximately ten million copies in the U.S. alone. Subsequent records have included Paul’s Boutique (regularly hailed by the likes of Rolling Stone as one of the greatest records ever made), the multi-platinum Check Your Head, the instant number one smash Ill Communication, and 1998’s quadruple-platinum double-Grammy-winner Hello Nasty. The two-CD set Beastie Boys Anthology: The Sounds of Science was first released in 1999. The slipcased set of the anthology, including the book and four vinyl LPs, was released in 2000 and is now sold out. Beastie Boys have just completed To The 5 Boroughs, their sixth studio album and the first to be produced by the boys themselves.Présentation de l'éditeur :
From 1982’s Pollywog Stew to 1998’s Hello Nasty and 2004's To The 5 Boroughs, Beastie Boys have pushed, bent, and molded the boundaries of music and pop culture worldwide. Starting out as a punk band from New York City, they mutated into the first Hip Hop act to hit number one on the pop charts, and went back to live instrumentation, while always drawing on a wide array of musical sources—from funk to hardcore, from Hip Hop to afro-cuban jazz.
Compiled by the band, Beastie Boys Anthology: The Sounds of Science takes you through the lives of MCA, Ad-Rock, and Mike D as they chronicle the creation of "Fight for Your Right", "Shake Your Rump", "Hey Ladies", "Pass the Mic", "Jimmy James", "So What’cha Want", "Sure Shot", "Sabotage", "Intergalactic", "Body Movin’" and more—all in their own words. The anthology also includes two CDs packed with their greatest hits and B-sides, making this the ultimate Beastie Boys collector’s item.
With photographs taken by Spike Jonze, Ari Marcopoulos, Ricky Powell, Glen E. Friedman, Danny Clinch, Nathanial Hörnblowér, and Sean Mortenson, to name a few, Beastie Boys Anthology provides the most insightful look to date into the trio that has defined cutting edge hip hop and alternative music and culture for more than two decades.
