Kinda cute. Beastie Boys v. Matt & Kim From http://www.thehoodinternet.com/2009/04/beastie-boys-vs-matt-kim.html
This interview was originally broadcast on March 29, 2006. The Beastie Boys released a new album, Hot Sauce Committee Part Two, on May 3, 2011.
To film The Beastie Boys’ 2006 concert movie, Awesome; I… Shot That!, fans attending a concert at Madison Square Garden received 50 cameras.
Awesome, described as "an authorized bootleg," includes more than a thousand edits, as footage was spliced together to give an omniscient view of a Beastie Boys concert. The Hi-8 cameras capture the scene as the rappers tear through a 24-song set.
From standard stage shots to multiple visions of a crowd going wild, the images flow with the music, forming a pastiche that’s not unlike the sampled, tweaked beats of hip-hop.
Courtesy of the artist In the concert, Mike D, MCA and Ad-Rock — who go by Michael Diamond, Adam Yauch and Adam Horovitz when they’re not rhyming — are backed by Mix Master Mike, Keyboard Money Mark and percussionist Alfredo Ortiz. The set also includes an appearance from rapper Doug E. Fresh.
Awesome had its premiere at the Sundance Film Festival, and its director is listed as Nathaniel Hornblower — the nom de cine of Adam Yauch, a.k.a. MCA. It’s the first full-length film for Yauch, who created much of the art and video associated with the group.
The Beastie Boys have been making music since the early 1980s, and their catalog includes party songs like "(You Gotta) Fight For Your Right To Party)" and "Brass Monkey," which is performed in the concert film.
As any hip hop fan knows, The Beastie Boys were there from the early days: New York white boys skipping from punk to the new sound, running with Run DMC, opening for Madonna on her Virgin Tour. And then they were huge, creative, anarchic, out of the box with Sabotage, Intergalactic, Fight For Your Right to Party. Adam Yauch was there from the beginning, a force with a bass guitar, and often a video camera, in hand. Now he’s shooting kids who shoot hoops and go to the NBA.
