The Planet Rock

2012 Overture

1999 wax from Los Shape Shiftaz.  Wonderful cover art, and dope songs too.  I've said before that I really go for the rougher sound of the earlier recordings found on Planet of the Shapes and Know Future, but you can't really compare that stuff with this.  The same players may be present, but here they came together to make straight ahead hip hop, whereas Planet and Know Future are more like experimental noise collages.  Even Circus reigns in somewhat here, with a cleaned-up and truncated "Mos Eisley".  Five tracks deep, with instrumentals for "Prevail" and "Reiterate".

  1. Believe in Christ! Christmas is ridiculous
    Rubber bullets and tear gas is how we spend our last momments together
    In this armeggedon addition of Jerry Springer
    I'm a Jerry's kid in the legend of Zelda
    When fighting an invisable enemy here ye
    The final calling the final story revealing the build up of electric shielding
    Protecting the military bio domes, home to Destro's Y2K syndrome
    Next stop thundar beyond thunder dome
    wishing upon a falling star wars bob dobbs is mobb deep and balthazar
    Seven second delay portrait of Earth view from Mars
    Is a wack place to be says carl sagan lazer ray gun
    Hulk Hogan hurry up and snap into it eat some power bars
    Snack on Slim Jims to save the earthlings from the Tiahuana alien invation
    And those evil Russians enslaved by the mansions of masons
    Frustrated at the lack of education
    Divided, lies, why do too many young black teenagers
    Wind up handcuffed front page daily Planet Rock 2012
    Reporting live from the gates of heck!

    Universal law, mathematical language
    Prophecies are least reason for man's anguish
    The end is near, thou shall not fear
    Most high appears in the form of a spear
    Splits the hemisphere, a massive earth quake
    Armeggedon begins, our souls are at stake
    Punnish them all, the evil ones shall fall
    All the souls evaporate, landscapes and all
    Millenia maddness, holy war analysis
    Carry the world on my back, like The Atlas
    Every step I take increase mortal magic
    Every breath I take decrease a mere savage
    Rapid destruction, volcano eruption
    Revelation forshadow Earth's abduction
    Fresh for 2012 you suckers!
