Change the Style
The Son of Bazerk were a rap band far ahead of their contemporaries. Unfortunately for them, they were also way ahead of their intended audience. The beats, the look, the style were borrowed from the future and stolen from the past. A silk-suited rapper whose style went from reggae to hardcore mid-song was "too much for the mental." Bazerk was joined by bandmates with names like "No Self Control," "Sandman" and "Half Pint." It was 1991 when I interviewed Son of Bazerk and the music industry still hasn't caught up with them.
