My favourite track (3) from The JAMS “1987; What The Fuck Is Going On?” LP. It was a pretty landmark step in both sampling and copyright challenging, as well as having an attitude that bordered on the sociopathic.
The reason this track (Don’t Take Five [Take What YOU Want]) is such a favourite, is along with the rudimetary 808 beats and Clydebank MCing is a none too hidden break, where Dave Brubeck’s “Take Five” floats into conciousness.
Out of place, out of time and a defiant fuck you.
I’m sure the old guy would have approved.
