Bus Stile Activities: Sugarhill Gang & Furious Five Columbus Concert

Sugarhill Gang took the stage and rocked routines.We found ourselves involuntarily waving our hands, clapping, calling and responding. The entire room’s enthusiasm for Sugarhill Gang was sincere.

Sugarhill Gang has rocked parties, TV shows, arenas and stadiums since 1979. Wonder Mike shouted RIP Big Bank Hank. I’d forgot Big Bank Hank died in 2014.

I didn’t feel like a dick, sorta. But I did laugh at teenage me’s aversion of Sugarhill Gang. I don’t quite feel like I was guilty of Rockism.

I feel comfortable reporting Sugarhill Gang were extraordinary at late 70’s rap performance in 2024. Sugarhill Gang gave historical facts, denounced violence, and gave props in intervals while making everyone party.

Sinkane - WE Belong + Black Violin ....

https://columbusfreepress.com/article/does-sinkane-still-belong-columbus...

Sinkane’s new album is called We Belong, released by City Slang records.

Where you’re from, and where you belong are fundamental ideas of existence. For a reader, so is deciding if Sinkane is in their realm of music. Where does Sinkane We Belong in music?

Sinkane previously released music from LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy label DFA. Is Sinkane a dance hipster with alternative rock radio possibilities? Sinkane’s latest, We Belong falls under wherever his Okay Africa culture could take someone in American music.

I’ve found amusement that North American College Community radio, or NACChart.com, considers Sinkane college R&B. Consider the Weeknd, Sinkane’s friend Solange, sister Beyonce and Erykah Badu’s influence on music over a mass of music over a sustained period.

College R&B is a genre with interesting possibilities. Kids starting bands in school, and then releasing underground DIY R&B records like punk bands until labels sign them?

Bilal is featured from We Belong’s second song “Another Day” trading verses with Stout and harmonizing with Sinkane about black peoples’ past 400 years.

Bilal’s worked with Dr. Dre. Bilal was in the Soulquarians with D’Angelo, Questlove, Dilla, Badu, Roy Hargrove, James Poyser, Common, Q-Tip, Talib Kweli, and Mos Def. Perhaps NACC’s College R&B is a product of the intent of 1996-2002’s the Soulquarians.

“Another Day” exemplifies the difference of We Belong from previous Sinkane efforts. Sinkane now exists as a R&B producer playing arrangements while singing with other vocalists. We Belong sounds like Sinkane is leading a contemporary Earth, Wind and Fire or some other 1970’s R&B group. Sinkane doesn’t sound retro.

Bushalte Stelle Abenteuer - Kraftwerk

Bushalte Stelle Abenteuer - Kraftwerk
By Wes Flexner aka anonanonanon
wesflexner@anonrocknroll.com

I received an email. Kraftwerk at Express Live Friday May 17. I pondered….who would open for Kraftwerk?

A quick web browsing determined Kraftwerk performs for two hours, prompt without openers. Kraftwerk is one of the groups who invented everything. Kraftwerk influenced Juan Atkins and his friends who invented Techno in Detroit.
DILLA.
One of my favorite definitions of Hip Hop from Ego Trip Magazine Book Of Rap Lists I couldn’t find online. Kraftwerk’s influence on Afrika Bambaataa allows a joke about Hip Hop being invented in 1970 Germany. I don’t know Kraftwerk’s opinions about factology.
DILLA.
