BB has what every skinny jean wearing dance/rap party group wishes they had...SKILLS. With fifteen years under their belts, these up beat kids cast shadows of big intentions, leaving dance floors exhausted and thirsty for more. Come witness the magnificence of Brothers Backword!

Biography

Brothers Backword will do for the Beastie Boys what the Bourne Ultimatum did for James Bond. Unpretentiously, Brothers Backword are a 21st century update on the classic components of Hip Hop and dance music that made them so lovable in the first place. David Bryant or Passage (Restiform Bodies / anticon.) and Mike Busse (Chronic Future, Modern Art Records partner) rap and sing in legible, irresistible flows. Topical tracks like Special Education, essentially a rapped three minute rendering of the film Notes on a Scandal, wind away from convention far enough to refresh themselves, but swing swiftly back to Earth with syrupy hooks, damaged yet effective verses and downright provocative bridges. Brothers Backword swoon and holler like hood rats, with none of the outsider politics or hang ups so common to indie rap. Dave and Mike are the classic "big guy, little guy" combo. Standing 5'7 and 5'11 Brothers Backword set the stage for impressive, tempo melting performances, and their vocal abilities flex to demonstrate the audio equivalent in their recordings.
The "Stupid Intelligent" mix-tape proves the perfect hunting ground for Passage and Busse. They interact with, infect and invade every track, from Mr. Oizo to Talking heads to Nas. Fearless of studio magic, they add talk box back ups to Shannon and manipulate hooks from beyond your memory. Suitably aggressive and comedic lyrics weave in and around chopped, meticulously syncopated Christian Bale sound bites. With an EP due out late this summer, Brothers Backword's "Stupid Intelligent" mix tape is a glimpse of what's to come, but in this future I don't know if we can win this war.

Lyrics

The Malfunction

Written By: Brothers Backword

CHORUS:

WHY DON'T WE TRAP THIS TRANCE AND CHASE THIS LIGHT
WHICH WE DESIGNED TO DESTROY BETRAY AND LIE
IF WE DANCE TO THE TUNE OF SACRIFICE, WE LET
OUR HEARTS ALL BREAK AT ONCE TONIGHT

M- IT'S A MESS WHEN MECHANICAL HEARTS MALFUNCTION
M- SAFE BEHIND GLASS WHERE NOBODY CAN TOUCH THEM

D-LIKE TWO AWKARD LOVERS IN A PAPER DUNGEON
D-ON A MOTORIZED PATH TO MASS DESTRUCTION

M-IT'S A FRAGILE UNION WITH A FLAWED DESIGN
D-IT WAS BUILT WITH AN EXPLOSIVE DEVICE INSIDE

D&M-AND YET THE BOYS AND THE GIRLS SKATE
D&M-FIGURE EIGHTS UNTIL THEIR BLOOD RUNS
D&M-COLD AND THE LOVE TURNS HATE

CHORUS:

WHY DON'T WE TRAP THIS TRANCE AND CHASE THIS LIGHT
WHICH WE DESIGNED TO DESTROY BETRAY AND LIE
IF WE DANCE TO THE TUNE OF SACRIFICE, WE LET
OUR HEARTS ALL BREAK AT ONCE TONIGHT

D-WHY WAIT LET'S TURN AROUND AND SMASH THE CASE
D-TO REMOVE THE HEART FASTER THAN THE GLASS CAN BREAK
M-WE AWAKE THE WHOLE CITY WHEN WE CRACK THE ICE
M-GET THE MEN AND WOMEN SWIMMING IN THEIR APPETITES
D-WE CAN SPLASH AROUND IN THE INFINITY POOL
M-WE LET IT ALL SLIDE LOVER WE DESTROYED THE RULES
D&M-ONCE A BOY AND GIRL GET THEIR CIRCUITS WET
D&M-THEY ENJOY THE MALFUNCTION WITHOUT REGRET

CHORUS:

WHY DON'T WE TRAP THIS TRANCE AND CHASE THIS LIGHT
WHICH WE DESIGNED TO DESTROY BETRAY AND LIE
IF WE DANCE TO THE TUNE OF SACRIFICE, WE LET
OUR HEARTS ALL BREAK AT ONCE TONIGHT


BRIDGE:

D&M-ALL THE LOVERS I HAVE EVER HAD HAVE BEEN THE
D&M-ONE SO HOW AM I TO KNOW THE DIFFERENCE IF THE
D&M-RIGHT ONE EVER WANDERS THROUGH THE ROOM I'M IN AND
D&M-EVERY MOMENT WE DELAY THE OPPORTUNITY IS
D&M-NARROWING AND I CAN FEEL IT FALL AWAY

D&M-WE GOT TO KNOW RIGHT NOW IF WE RIGHT FOR EACH
D&M-OTHER I'LL ROLL THE DICE IF YOU PLAY MY NUMBER
D-LEAVE A LITTLE SPACE I CAN MOVE BETWEEN
M-I SEEN A MILLION OTHER LOVES THAT WERE LOVELY DREAMS
D-AIN'T A GLAND IN A MAN THAT DON'T WANT YOUR DRUG
M-TO ENHANCE WHAT HE KNOWS HE DON'T KNOW ENOUGH
D&M-WE ABANDON THE DANCE AND WE ANIMAL UP
D&M-AND LEAVE THE BOY AND THE GIRL TO THE PUSH AND SHOVE

CHORUS:

WHY DON'T WE TRAP THIS TRANCE AND CHASE THIS LIGHT
WHICH WE DESIGNED TO DESTROY BETRAY AND LIE
IF WE DANCE TO THE TUNE OF SACRIFICE, WE LET
OUR HEARTS ALL BREAK AT ONCE TONIGHT
WHY DON'T WE TRAP THIS TRANCE AND CHASE THIS LIGHT
WHICH WE DESIGNED TO DESTROY BETRAY AND LIE
IF WE DANCE TO THE TUNE OF SACRIFICE, WE LET
OUR HEARTS ALL BREAK AT ONCE TONIGHT

STEP IN STOP BY
GOOD LUCK NICE GUY

THIS IS THE WAY THAT WE ROLL
LOOK AT THE WAY THAT WE PUSH
THROUGH YOU TOO COOL
YOU PUSSIES CAN'T RUN FROM OUR
ROID CRAZED MICE BRAINS NICE DAY
TO FIND US A FIGHT IN A CAGE
THIS IS THE WAY WE BEHAVE
GET OUT OF OUR WAY

WELL THERE'S NO TIME LIKE YESTER
NEXT TO THE CONTESTANT
LOOKING FOR SOME CONSISTENT ENTERTAINMENT
A JESTER CONFIDENCE IN A QUESTION
LACKADAISICAL MESSAGE
IF YOU DON'T MEAN WHAT YOU DO
THEN TAKE A SUGGESTION

TAKE A DECONGESTANT IF YOUR STUFFED UP UNCLEAR
GO AHEAD AND TAKE A SWING BATTER BATTER
AT THE CHUMP IN THE MIRROR
YOU SPLIT YOUR 8 INTO A COUPLE OF 4'S
A 16 DOESN'T FEEL LIKE SUCH A MISERABLE CHORE

FORMULAIC IN SESSION MISTER SMITH WITHOUT WESSON
COME OUT TO THE WEST AND TAKE A LEFT AT THE EXIT
UNIVERSITY LESSON GUESSING ON YOUR TEST AND
A PINCH HITTER COMMITTING TO INSTANCE OF AGGRESSION

FLEX IN YOUR APARTMENT HARD
I BEG YOUR PARDON
SMARMY LOOKING DUDE
STEPPING OUT ONTO THE PORCH
A TARGET FOR THE MARKSMAN
CORNERING YOUR MARKET

LORD OF YOUR OWN CARPET

BIG SHOT JUST STOP
LOCK YOUR MOUTH SHUT
STEP IN STOP BY
GOOD LUCK NICE GUY

HEY CHOSE A LANE BUCKO BEST OF LUCK JACKO
LACK LUSTER OR MACHO RUSH TO SUCK A FAT OLD DICK

AND DASH THE CRASH CUSTOMER TASK MASTER OR HUSTLE

SAND BLOCK STUTTERING NOTHING COMING TO MIIND
WHO ARE THEY HUDDLING COMFORTABLE IN THEIR CRIME
LOVING UNDERSCORE CUDDLING UNDER A RHYME
LIKE THEIR SPOONING WITH THE BEAT PLAYING IT SAFE AT THE TIME

THE TANK TOP TRASH TALK UNICORN DOOM
HE AINT RULE NOTHING WITH A FIST BUT HIS ROOM
ONLY THE LONELY LAUGHING AT HIS OWN JOKE
HOMMIE I'M STABBING THESE GEEZERS IF I'M FEELING THE NEED
TO REMOVE THROATS

BIG SHOT JUST STOP

STEP IN STOP BY
GOOD LUCK NICE GUY

GET OUT OF OUR WAY

AND IT'S DELISH TO DISH ON A CITIZEN
WHEN NONE OF US IS INNOCENT
YOU WISH IT WASN'T YOU IN THE DESCRIPTION
IT'S THE BOTH OF US CONNECTED LIKE TWO REELS BY A PROJECTIONIST
WHO'S SPLICING US TOGETHER BUT MY BODY IS REJECTING IT

COME AND INTERACT WITH ENTHUSIASTIC ASSHOLES
JUST TO SEE A MUD FLAP WAGGING OUT OF CONTROL
IT'S SO HARD TO SEEK PEACE WITH NO ONE ELSE AROUND
SO I STICK TO THE PIXIE DUST AND KEEP MY HEAD ON THE GROUND

SHOW ME YOUR ANGER AND I'LL BE OUTTA YOUR WAY
THAT TYPE OF RESISTANCE IS TOO EASY TO STRAY
KITTY CAT COMFORTABLE ON A COUCH IN A KITCHEN
THE DIGNITY OF INJURY YOUR A CLOUD THAT'S GONE MISSING

BIG SHOT JUST STOP
LOCK YOUR MOUTH SHUT
STEP IN STOP BY
GOOD LUCK NICE GUY

THIS IS THE WAY THAT WE ROLL
LOOK AT THE WAY THAT WE PUSH
THROUGH YOU TOO COOL
YOU PUSSIES CAN'T RUN FROM OUR
ROID CRAZED MICE BRAINS NICE DAY
TO FIND US A FIGHT IN A CAGE
THIS IS THE WAY WE BEHAVE
GET OUT OF OUR WAY
