Hollywood's bad b-boys: Dirt Nasty and Andre Legacy 

Wednesday, Jun 18 2008

"I'm on a bender/Don't ask me no questions/I won't remember," Andre Legacy sings in "Bender," a silly tune that has become the signature offering for the novelty rapper from Los Angeles. His brother from another mother, Dirt Nasty, was born in San Francisco and had a previous life as MTV host Simon Rex in the '90s. Trashy Hollywood experiences play well into both Legacy's and Nasty's debauched musical style — especially the latter, who is a former Paris Hilton paramour. A prime example: "1980," from his 2007 debut album, which is laden with punch lines about cocaine and fast women.

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
