Beastie Boys Check Your Head
Song: Lee Majors Come Again
Artist: Beastie Boys
Album: Check Your Head (2009 Re-Issue)
Label: Capital Records
Notes: none
Analysis: ‘Lee Majors Come Again’ is a hidden 7″ disc bonus track for some of those who purchased the re-issue of their classic Check Your Head. It isn’t what you would expect, though. The song is an abrasive, fuzzy punk rock cut much in line with their VERY early work (like, 1983 Cooky Puss early). It’s fast and very rough around the edges, but really cool to hear something “new” from the group before their actual new album is released later this year. I can’t recommend it to anyone whose strictly a fan of only their commercial stuff, but to anyone looking for a brutal, staticky mosher… shit, it’s the Beastie Boys. Everyone should be listening no matter what.
