New! Strange Famous Podcast

New! Strange Famous Podcast

A brand new feature of our site is the Strange Famous Podcast, which currently contains 5 hours worth of hip-hop mixes. Originally broadcast on Sage Francis’ college radio show “The True School Session” circa 1997-1999, we’ve decided to dig up the time capsule and share with all. This is a lot of underground hip-hop so don’t take it in all at once. Keep your browser open and let it play until you can’t take it anymore. We edited out most of the yapping for your listening pleasure, but we kept in the good stuff.

“Homegrown Mutiny” FREE DOWNLOAD from 1996

I’m still digging through my old 4-track tapes. Here’s a free download of “Mutiny” which appeared on my Homegrown Demo in 1996. The instrumental is from Company Flow’s “8 Ways to Perfection” song.

“Mutiny” was eventually re-recorded with a live band in 1997 and can be found on my “Sick of Waging War” CD (also available as a digital download.) A lot more exclusive material on the way. Read the rest of this entry »

A sweet review of Dan vs. Pip & B. Dolan in Portland

On Saturday, October 4th, the most recent Strange Famous Records tour rolled through Portland’s Doug Fir Lounge, manned by U.K. hip-hop/electro act Dan Le Sac vs. Scroobius Pip and Providence, RI’s own B. Dolan. As a fan of both acts, I had high hopes and I was not disappointed. This easily ranked as one of the more exciting and original shows I’ve seen in many years. In large part, the strength of this show rested on the odd contrast that Dan v. Pip and Dolan presented, but more on that in a minute. Read the rest of this entry »
