Press release :
An ode to the bearded Zenmeister of maximum noise-creation, "Rick Rubin" is in fact Spank Rock's very own, somewhat cryptic brag. For what the Baltimore duo (trio? quartet?) are suggesting is that, just as Rick Rubin transformed modern music in the mid-eighties, now Spank Rock are going to do the same for the mid-noughties.

As you would hope, the boast is accompanied by tons of squelching bass, bizarre latin percussion, talking drums, random electronic squeaking, robot voices, and a rhyme from Spank Rock himself that skips through concepts and ideas at such speed that it leaves you dizzy and desperate for more:

Is it out of touch?
Or is it the touch?
Is it that creation you've been patiently waiting for?
Bloody as fuck raw?
Soulfully hardcore?
Does it get you moving?
Is it too confusing?
Am I losing you with theses theories I'm proving?

Being all about bringing the newness in their own sweet (and not so sweet) way, Spank Rock decided to hook up their own remixes for the tune and consequently make sure that everything came out just how they liked it. The "President Evil" remix features 5Deez member Pase Rock, who trades lines with Spank over a slapping, swinging rhythm. Producer XXXchange then takes it even further into electro-territory on his own glistening and body-rockin' mix.

The package is completed by bonus track "Girls And Boys," which shows something of the more brutal, avant garde element to the Spank Rock sound. Truly raw and resolutely in yer face, it hints at the fact that their forthcoming debut album, "Yo Yo Yo Yo Yo", will be considerably more than a party record.
