It must have been 2002 or 2003, when I was standing in the crowd at the Sonic Acts Festival in Paradiso Amsterdam. The line up had something to do with the guys from Beta Bodega and Rice 'n Beans. They must have thrown cd's into the audience that night because the next day I found a compilation album in my pocket; I turned on the amplifier, sat myself between the speakers and off we went. Those tunes grabbed me like never before. Sometime later at a party or birthday bash I lost the damned cd. Years later, while I was round for dinner at a friends place, he put on a minidisc and I flipped out, there was that dope again. I tried to track the first issues of Rice 'n Beans but soon found that those early cds were never archived. Rice 'n Beans, beta Bodega, La Mano Frija, Nothing exists of them now. Here's some guesswork. Pefuse 63, Five Deez, Cannonball Ox, Fila Brazillia. I mixed them with some stuff which has triggered me in the last few months. The beginning of the world. Right here, right now. Kid Kowalski
