Break out your videotape of Breakin' 2: Electric Boogaloo (the one you stole from Q Records in 1989), because according to Grand Buffet's website, the American rap duo is going to be doing a lot of smashing this year; in the South, in Canada, and in their "second favorite country," Europe. This information is "hella important" because it means millions of people will be hit in the face with joints like "Headballs," "Things That Go Hump in the Night," and "You're on Fire." The raw rhythms of old-school rap, avant-garde keyboard noodling, and the occasional acoustic instrument accompany the Pittsburgh-based rappers' wry lyrics and sing-along choruses. Their latest wanderings bring them to Florida, their "home away from home." See what all the fuss is about, but remember: No Kangols, No Adidas, No Service! -- Jon Wilkins
