Grand Invincible “MEGABLAST”
[mp3]http://gurpcity.net/wp-content/uploads/2008/01/08-megablast.mp3[/mp3]
I used to know a girl who would hit Richard Pryor’s chalice, grab me by the ears, and say in a gravel voice, holding back her exhale, “Shotgun this megablast, bitch,” and then blow a full-on horizontal mushroom cloud of burnt-styrofoam flavored smoke directly in my face. It was a pretty heavy thing to experience and I’ve never been able to shake it from my memory. Also, this song is Cali’s answer to Chill Rob G’s “Wildpitch.” Compare the two you’ll find vast similarities. Dan came sick with the 45 King-ish (not to be mistaken by Pete Rock-ish or T-ray-ish) horns at the end, don’tcha think?

Grand Invincible “ELEPHANT TRANQ”

I think it was DJ Eons homey Jake who found this record in the street and gave it to him. Lo and behold from someone else’s trash came this amazing break. The perfect theme for the Year of the Rat “and that’s twelve whole months of the/ hardest G’s alive hidin’ under their comforters.” (Do you recognize the nod to AZ pioneers Supermarket in that lyric? If you don’t, get Brandon B from Trunk Drank to put you up on game at the show on Sunday, this Sunday, Jan. 20th).

Grand Invincible “WAR MEMORIAL”
[mp3]http://gurpcity.net/wp-content/uploads/2008/01/10-war-memorial.mp3[/mp3]
This next one isn’t necessarily about the current war, it’s more a comment on all wars and conquering people. I was inspired by Killah Priest (of course, Eons dubbed out Wildstyle samples, especially the baby cooing, got me in the mood, reminded me of that remix that GZA did for Jon Spencer Blues Explosion with KP on it) and the war poems of Alan Dugan (here’s one so you get the idea; it’s called How We Heard the Name, enjoy:)

The river brought down
dead horses, dead men
and military debris,
indicative of war
or official acts upstream,
but it went by, it all
goes by, that is the thing
about the river. Then
a soldier on a log
went by. He seemed drunk
and we asked him Why
had he and this junk
come down to us so
from the past upstream.
”Friends,” he said, ”the great
Battle of Granicus
has just been won
by all of the Greeks except
the Lacedaemonians and
myself: this is a joke
between me and a man
named Alexander, whom
all of you ba-bas
will hear of as a god.”
