So this is usually a space for pictures of nice food and coffees we are serving. But we play more music in the cafe than we serve food and drinks- most of the people that work with us are either devout and hungry music fans or music makers.
Outkast have been one of the staples on the Fleetwood boom box for the last 2 years. I watched their live stream from Coachella Festival on the weekend, their big come back and first show together in 8 years (also the first show in a 40 date festival tour). Andre 3000 seemed to sort of implode into a vortex of doom. He looked like he was worlds away and really not enjoying it. I hope he finds a way to enjoy the next 39 shows because they are one of the most innovative and influential
hip hop groups of all time.
I present here an ode to Outkast with 5 of their lesser known tracks (I believe they call them deep cuts). Enjoy- hootie hoo. Jai
1. SpottieOttieDoplascious- from Aquemini
2. Follow The Light (Dungeon Family) - Even In Darkness
The Dungeon Family were Outkast’s supergroup side project that only released one album. It has some serious jams on it though including this one:
3. Vibrate (Andre 3000) - from The Love Below
4. Toilet Tisha- from Stankonia
Tell me they hadn’t been listening to lots of Prince when they made this one.
5. Hootie Hoo- from Southerplayalisticcadillacmusik
Back to 1994 with their first album they made when they were still in their teens.
