Suga Buga

Sugar Bear only ever recorded two songs, but one's a club classic that always works best as an entrée to It Takes Two, while the other one's such a generic golden-era B side that even the sort of gormless random-rap obsessive Borks who think Years To Build is better than Let The Rhythm Hit 'Em couldn't care less about it; ergo Don't Scandalize Mine is an absolute shoo in for the remarkable songs by unremarkable rappers canon, innit?

Sugar Bear - Don't Scandalize Mine
(From Don't Scandalize Mine 12" single; 1988)


Thank you Based Bear and the track's producer Shabazz for sampling that good bit from Once In A Lifetime so I've only had to sit through the original Talking Heads song a mere once. Give me Sugar Bear's proto-Tim Dog vocal stylings over David Byrne's poncy ‘wacky’ vocals all day, every day. Let's not even try to bullshit each other here, folks: everything Talking Heads did on their Remain In Light LP in 1980 was done a billion times better by Peter Gabriel on his So album in 1986.

Do you happen to have that other Sugar Bear track as well? It's not very easy to locate on the internets.

I don't, sorry.

Oh shit, looks like he did.

Talk about "dome blown within the circumference of your own home."
