SOTD: Tackhead - Ska Trek (1989)
Remember the song "Rapper's Delight" by the Sugarhill Gang? They had a group of guys backing them up called Fats Comet who were also known as Tackhead. These are the same guys backing up Grandmaster Flash on White Lines and The Message.
They released their first 7" in 20 years on November 11th, 2011. Its a cover of Bob Marley's Exodus. Here's a remix of the new track.
It's from an album of new music that's supposed to be released in 2012. Stay tuned to their Official Site for news on that.
They released the album Friendly as a Hand Grenade in 1989 and the first track on the album was "Ska Trek"
