Recorded backstage at their reunion show in London last week. They discuss their first show in New York at Homebase with fellow Elektra artists LONS, Brand Nubian and KMD; Wendy Williams breaking ‘T.R.O.Y.’ on NY radio, how Sylvia Rhone taking over at Elektra is when “things started going haywire”, and more.

Along with remixes, b-sides, demons and other non-album cuts.

I didn’t know this was going down. Just got chills from hearing T.R.O.Y.

From yesterday’s show at Relentless Garage, Highbury.

Pete Rock & CL Smooth live onstage in London for the first time in years, dropping classics like ‘Soul Brother #1’, ‘Straighten It Out’ and ‘They Reminisce Over You (T.R.O.Y.)’

It’s a short video, but props to Duncan Master for the heads up.
