Played keys, bass and guitar on the hilarious and clever rapper's debut produced by Nappy G who I met when Alphabet Soup used to come to New York and play at The Cooler with Groove Collective in the early 90's.

The last gasp of a great band that could've been great. Whatever the reasons the band never broke, this is a good representation of how we sounded.

Steve Horowitz - The Code - Fot
Keyboards . Wacky Bay Area outsters Ralph Carney, Willy iwnant and Myles Boisen contribute.
