Beastie Boys: The Series – Aglio E Olio (1995)
While recording for Hello Nasty, the Boys realized they had recorded too many hardcore tracks for the record. Seriously, can you have too many hardcore songs? I THINK NOT! Anyway, they instead decided to release a bunch of it as this EP, named Garlic & Oil. Why? Because they can.
The sticker on the front says “Only 8 songs, only 11 minutes, only cheap $.” That should tell you everything you need to know. Their roots are as brash punks, not brash rappers. This all would have fit perfectly on Some Old Bullshit, despite the decade+ between recording sessions.
Deal With It
Square Wave in Unison
You Catch A Bad One
I Can’t Think Straight
I Want Some
I liked this a lot, ‘cos I like that east coast early 80s punk sound.
