Inspired by their triumphant return to CBGB's, the band has regrouped with its original lineup - H.R., guitarist Dr. Know, bassist Darryl Jenifer and drummer Earl Hudson - and are working on releasing the record as well as its follow up.
Guitarist Dr.Know spoke to Billboard about the show, saying:
It was tremendous, We hadn't played in that place in a long, long time. Did you see the DVD [the recently released 'Live at CBGB's 1982']? That shit was like that [laughs]! There was so much friends and family -- it was a bit much, actually. It was really an honor and a privilege to have so many good friends and see them all. We were back together for a week; we hadn't been together for a long time.
As for the record, he describes the sound:
There's a lot of dubs and there's some old school-meets-new school Brains, Not moderate tempo, but fast tempo. Yauch said, 'Man, I want y'all to do some old school-type shit,' so we did it like that. I want to start working on the next one, because we did that one two years ago already,
Dr.Know is also working on a solo record, with planned help from Flea (RHCP), Mos Def, Living Colour and his bandmates.
