Famous today black hardcore / rap quartet started in the late `70s as a fusion band, and formed the basis of the repertoire of compositions Chica Korii and Stanley Clarke.
In early 1979, the band moved to New York,which quickly went up the hill - with the Dead Kennedys and Black Flag collective laid the foundations of hardcore, playing on the mind-boggling speed of punk rock hybrid, modern jazz and reggae - in this period, the group used when recording multiple overlay effects loop and a mechanical disk torshn.
