No Sleep Till KXLU


Los Angeles. 1985. The Beasties boys on their first trip to LA touring with Madonna. I really hope you are having crazy nostalgia flashbacks right now because I definitely am. Glen E. Friedman just forwarded me the above photo (check out the Oki-Dog hat!) that he took as well as this podcast of a 1985 recording of Adam Bomb’s radio show on KXLU [part one | part two] which he just found online by accident. He was showing the B-Boys around LA while they were here on tour and he took them by the studio for this show. This shot is from the same day, just afterwards. A few more pics from the party mentioned on the show after the jump.
