Release date: April 22, 2017 for Record Store Day
"CSC Funk Band, a 10-piece supergroup featuring members of GWAR, The USA Is a Monster and Talibam!, deliver on their most ambitious undertaking yet with “Above The Starrs,” an all-instrumental homage to the seminal East Coast hip-hop duo, Gang Starr, that consisted of MC Guru and the DJ/producer DJ Premier. In the three years since their last full-length “Funkincense,” was selected for SPIN’s “Record Store Day Shopping Guide: 42 Essential Releases,” CSC’s 10 band members have poured hundreds of hours of studio experimentation into this highly anticipated follow-up album, resurrected from the Fat Beats vaults and originally inspired by a live collaboration with rapper Masta Ace at a Guru tribute concert.
"Above the Starrs" offers an instant rap-geek curio for anyone who likes hearing bands cross the bounds of sample-based and live hip-hop instrumentation. Limited edition of 400 copies on black vinyl. Comes in full-color jacket and includes digital download card."
