if you like the beastie boys

Then you are going to love FannyPack. I'm listening to them right now, and feeling silly (in a good way). Maybe you have even heard their single "Camel Toe" on the radio already or have seen the video for it. I'm not saying this is the greatest ish I've ever heard, but for some early-to-mid '80s electro tripped out hip-hop nostalgia this is the it. There is a comment on the current musical culture wrapped up in the music of these teenagers that is quite intriguing. Just in being their own youthful selves, unihibited, and playful they have somehow made a statement that it's time to take it back and have a lil' bit o' fun. The lyrics make you laugh, and the music makes you dance (in that shake, shake, shake, shake your booty kind o' way, but not in the KC and Sunshine Band steelo - more like Luke with some Miami Bass) --- I can just see you doing windmills and backspins now and popping and locking (oh yeah that's right that's not considered old skool anymore since Missy started using it in her videos and stage show). But I know what the song might spark you to do,You'll prob'aly start singing, "Pump up the jam, now pump it!" or "Move That Body." "Baby Got Back" or "Wild Thang" anyone?
Can you name this tune...
TINA got a big ole butt
I know I told you I'd be true
But TINA got a big ole butt
So I'm leavin' you
TINA got a big ole butt
I know I told you I'd be true
But TINA got a big ole butt
So I'm leavin' you

For real kids, this is where FannyPack takes you. It might even make you want to go back to Cali. Now how's that for a throwback?

For more on FannyPack: "Camel Toe Making An Impression On Booty Shakers, Bagel Buyers," by Joe D'Angelo. Go to VH1 or MTV for extras (like video and audio), and the article. The CD, So Stylistic is due for release in July.
