“Singer Alice Russell picks three tunes as Resident DJ. Alice has collaborated on tracks from Mr Scruff’s “Music Takes Me Up” to David Byrne and Fatboy Slim’s concept album ‘Here Lies Love’.
Plus we mine the archives as ‘Hello Nasty’ by The Beastie Boys is 20 years old. Released in July 1998, four years after the band’s previous album, Ill Communication, ‘Hello Nasty’ marked the addition of DMC champion Mix Master Mike to the group’s line-up. The title for the album was allegedly inspired by the receptionist of their NY-based publicity firm Nasty Little Man who would answer the phone with the greeting “Hello Nasty”. The art cover depicts all three members – Michael “Mike D” Diamond (vocals, drums), Adam “MCA” Yauch (vocals, bass) and Adam “Ad-Rock” Horovitz (vocals, guitar) – wrapped in an aluminium sardine tin and getting baked in the sun. ‘Hello Nasty’ reached number one in the UK album charts and soundtracked the Summer of 1998.
