I went to the Hammersmith Apollo last night and saw one of the most legendary and greatest hip-hop bands of all time, live, direct, in full effect and in the flesh; every single one of the bad boys (apart from the sadly departed Ol' Dirty Bastard).
I can't describe to you how utterly awesome it was to see the whole Clan on stage, playing tracks from their entire, lengthy discography and making London jump like crazy fools to their frenzied sounds. They managed to fuse tracks together, so the gig was like one intense medley of noise and power.
These guys are one of the founding fathers of modern hip-hop, one of the leading lights in pushing the genre forward and they've been sadly missed from a fairly redundent US hip-hop scene churning out artists with little artistry, skills and stories that are worth listening to.
I salute you Wu-Tang Clan, long may you bring the motherfuckin' ruckus!
