Links Are Dead - I Know

I keep getting Emails from people asking me to re-upload the links and music etc. I think people are just getting to those particular pages so are not reading the reason for the dead links.

So I am putting this in place so hopefully people will read it and stop Emailing me about it.

The reason the links are dead is that my account with Media Fire has been closed with all 11,000 files lost. That is why you can not download the things and No I can not re-upload them.

Eventually I will start doing that again when I have found something suitable. In the meantime this blog will be information only blog.

Thank you all

Grandmaster Mell and the Furious Five

'Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five' was a highly influential hip hop group composed of Grandmaster Flash, Melle Mel, Kid Creole, Cowboy, Scorpio (aka Mr. Ness) and Raheim. The band released their most significant hit 'The Message' in 1982. The single was produced by in-house Sugar Hill producer Clifton "Jiggs" Chase and featured session musician Duke Bootee. Though not the first in the genre of rap to talk about the struggles and the frustrations of living in the ghetto, the song was unique in that it was set to a slower beat, refocusing the song on the lyrics over the music. As most of the group were uninterested in recording the song other than Melle Mel, no other members of the group actually appear on the record. Rahiem lip-synced Duke Bootee's vocal in the music video. 'The Message' went platinum in less than a month. In 2007, they became the first rap group to ever be inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame The single made it to number 8 in the UK Singles Chart.
