September 14, 2010 - The trio take on the Fab Four with their 7th studio release RUBBER SOULIVE, dropping today on Royal Family Records.

Kraz recalls, "It finally came together when we ended up back at Alan’s studio in Hatfield, MA after a weekend of gigs last year... We were in the middle of unloading the gear when we decided it was time: You know what? Rather than driving home and then driving back in a few days, let’s stay right here and work on that Beatles idea.

It really was that spontaneous.

I actually went to a music store and got a bunch of the new re-mastered stuff. The first day in the studio, we just did a lot of listening – listening and talking about which tunes to do and how to do them.

We wanted to do some stuff that already sounded like it was in our lane – the groovier, funkier stuff. But we also wanted to delve into other songs that were more open to our interpretation, you know?

Kim Kardashian can now be on the road to divorce, but does not forget his humble roots ...
Way back in 2003, before she was famous, she was just another girl on the party scene in LA, and best friends with Paris Hilton. She was dating a rapper named Ray J at the time and the two headed off for Mexico and filmed what would become one of the most downloaded videos the internet has ever seen.
Dubbed Kim K Superstar, the 39 minute DVD was released in 2007 after Porn purveyor Vivid bought the rights and settled with Kardashian for $5 million dollars and immediately began selling the footage. The DVD sold over 1 million copies.

Now, in a new twist, Vivid has released all of their Kim K sex tape footage... and it's even more uncensored and longer than we imagined.
[i]Dubbed "Kim K Superstar, Part 2" the full online version is over 1 hour 40 minutes long. [/i]
27 Jan 2010 Update: Kim Kardashian's rep denies TMZ's report and tells Access Hollywood she will have security, but not an armored limo.

Questions: Where can I watch it for free?
This is pretty much the only question I get so I’m just going to answer it quickly. A lot of people have been getting burned on non-official websites that try to install so called "codecs" to watch the video. Any site that asks you to download any kind of computer program before you can play the video is actually trying to get you to install a virus. Sounds fun. Now, if you're too poor to afford to watch it online, god help you. Just pray you won't get a virus.
