Before there was Kool Keith, Old Dirty Bastard or 2 Live Crew - before there was hip hop, for that matter - there was Blowfly, performing X-rated songs with a funky groove. Born 60 years ago in Cochran, Georgia, Miami's Clarence Reid has recorded more than 40 albums during his illustrious career. He got his nickname as a child when his grandmother, after hearing him sing dirty versions of then popular songs - like "Suck My D**k" for "Do The Twist" - proclaimed, "You is nastier than a blowfly."

St. James and The Apostles

"...They’ve slayed face with acid-tinged rockers that draw from classic rock, psych, and biblical tropes, and have been dubbed “the hardest working band in Philly” due to their energy and nonstop performance schedule." - Kate Bracaglia,
"Via Dolorosa" - out 9/23 on Ghost Imprint/King Pizza
