People Under the Stairs on The Simpsons, on Deck

Posted By on Tue, Jan 12, 2010 at 11:24 AM

Gavin Newsom wasn't the only familiar celeb to be part of The Simpsons' 20th anniversary special last Sunday night.  Hip-hop duo People Under the Stairs were in on Homer's action as well. Thes One and Double K--who live in L.A., but we consider localish since they're on Bay label Om Records--recorded a special anniversary theme song for the show, collaborating with Mr. Party Til You Puke On the Piano, Andrew W.K.--who took to the ivories and "did some scatting" with PUTS. Their part of the theme sounds kinda brief--the group admits it's a "blink and you'll miss it" contribution--but they were pretty damn excited nonetheless. PUTS says Harlem Gospel Choir, Moby, and Phish also added to the song.

You can hear more PUTS this weekend, when Thes and Double headline a DJ night at Som Bar to promote their new record, Carried Away. J Boogie will also be on deck. We can only hope PUTS uses their Simpsons connections to convince Homer to come out and perform "Rapper's Delight."

  • 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.'"
