ESG – “South Bronx Story”

Posted in Uncategorized by Mogo on May 27, 2007

the popular story about this quartet of sisters is that they were aspiring to be a soul/r&b group but, due to their lack of instrumental prowess, ended up sounding more like a no-wave band and becoming popular in that scene, despite being fairly detatched from it on an intellectual level. they also had some material released by 99 Records. I don’t remember off-hand if this release is an anthology or just one of their albums, but either way, pretty enjoyable. oh yeah – apparently ESG became sample fodder for the Beastie Boys at one point as well. I forget the exact details but if you google the band name you should come across the story.
