My Mind Spray 14

None of Duke Deuce's singles from the past twelve months have quite hit for me, and I'm gonna attribute this to him developing a penchant for Doc Marten boots. When rappers start dressing like crusty punx, a part of their musical mojo vanishes forever.

More than any other genre, Rap songs are messages in bottles from the eras they were created, and the details wot date them are a strength not a weakness.

A.I is a wasted technology until somebody uses it to create a 1980s-set video for Ice-T's Soul On Ice. Best closing song on an 80s Rap album IMHO.

No spoilerz, but that new horror movie Late Night With The Devil really missed a trick by not using Andre Nickatina's Conversation With A Devil as its end credits music.

Speaking of movies, here's a rare picture of the Scottish darts player Peter Wright visiting the set of Ghostbusters II in 1989. Left to right: Ernie Hudson, Peter Wright, Dan Aykroyd, Bill Murray and Harold Ramis.

💀 @ Peter Wright.

Hoping to catch Late Night with the Devil before whenever possible.

I liked it a lot.

Just seen that After Hours is getting a U.K cinema re-release this friday too.

Is there a good place to start with Duke Deuce? Seems kinda Pastor Troy/90's Memphis esque any good full projects?

Ray Garraty said...

agree on Duke

Ben, Memphis Massacre III is his most consistent album. His others are generally very hit and miss. Best Duke Deuce songs:

Bad News
No Smoke
Crunk Is Dead
Fat Mac
Just Say That
Open Up
I Get Crunk
Mr. Memphis Massacre
All That

The problem with Duke is that he's trying to ride every wave past or present. His hommage Memphis thing is great but his hommage Linkin Park stuff is ass!

Also that Def Jux pic + the caption was definitely a cheap shoot. ROFL material

His singing shit which sounds half Linkin Park, half Meatloaf 🤮
