NME Festival blog: Listen to 12 Beastie Boys rarities for anniversary of ‘To The 5 Boroughs’
The pioneering New York group’s fourth studio album featured such tracks as ‘Sure Shot’, ‘Sabotage’ and ‘Get It Together’, and is widely considered by fans to be a key release in their back catalogue.
The film, Still Ill: 25 Years of the Beastie Boys’ ‘Ill Communication’, features interviews with the group’s surviving members Michael ‘Mike D’ Diamond and Adam ‘Ad-Rock’ Horovitz, with the pair dive deep into the making of the 1994 album, which a press release hails as “arguably one of their high points as artists and generational touchstones”.
Still Ill also shines a spotlight on the late Beastie Boy member Adam ‘MCA’ Yauch and his contributions to ‘Ill Communication’ in particular.
