That Limerick show in 2009 was the first time Godknows & mynameisJohn were in a studio together. 5 years later, they release one of the most exciting album of the year in Ireland. Hope to see you back in Limerick again Billy
Avatar 7:36pm Billy Jam:

24 years ago this month Def Jam sent out promo cassettes of the Chuck Chillout "Merry Christmas" mixtape - a one-hour radio show styled production that was packed with interviews and music of Rush related artists - including EPMD and Public Enemy on the imaginary radio station "WDEF" on "The Rush Hour" Although the tape was sent out in Decemember the interviews were conducted earlier in the year - the Fall of 1990 - when EPMD had just switched to Def Jam and were finishing up "Business As Usual" in the studio, and while Chuck D/PE were fresh off US tour in support of "Fear Of A Black Planet" released at the start of that summer
