Beastie Boys Back To Roots On The Mix Up
Posted by Molli Fire on Monday, 30April07
A new Beastie Boys album hits the streets in June! When i say roots, i’m talking pre-License To Ill punk rock days. They have revisited this sound for a few songs on a few albums, but this sounds like a full album of raw slam dancing! Mike D reports to NME that the music on The Mix Up is more rockin like what you hear on Check Your Head and Paul’s Boutique. All of the sounds and instruments on The Mix Up are played by the 3 of them. They put the sampler away for this album!

The BBoys will be performing at the Virgin Festival, Live Earth Concert in London, Electric Picnic, and SONAR Festival in Barcelona.
When asked about what they would be playing at the London Live Earth Concert, Mike D replied –
“By that point we’ll already be playing new songs. But I dunno – you don’t wanna do ‘Jazz Odyssey’ in front of a crowd of 60,000.”
