ABU!/Style Warrior Tee & Hoody Offer


Ladies and gentlemen, in conjunction with STYLE WARRIOR I am very pleased to announce that as from today there is a brand-new ABU! t-shirt available to purchase.

Featuring the much-loved and iconic font as found on many NYC b-boy and DJ crews in the 1970s, STYLE WARRIOR have given it their unique spin and have produced a perfect design for the ABU! massive.

Not only just a tee but also up for grabs is a top-quality hoody in the same colours and design which will be perfect for wearing during those nippy Autumn evenings.

Available in a range of sizes, head over to http://www.stylewarrior.co.uk/abu-shirt/ now to make your purchase as with all Style Warrior stuff, this is a pre-order item only. Plus you need to order ASAP as they will only be available for a limited time. In fact you have until Sunday 12th July to order. After that the option to buy is gone.

A big supa-dope shout to Martin @Style Warrior for the fresh designs.

You know you need one of these. Remember what happened when the original ABU! shirts sold out? Don't let it happen again!

Order NOW!

Baby Love RSC

We all remember the female member of Rock Steady Crew - b-girl, Baby Love. Yes?
I found these pics some time back but neglected to post them and am relieved to report that she hasn't turned into a munter as some ladies from the scene have sadly become.
I'd hate to see what Sparky D looks like now *shudder*

L-R: Candy, Beta, Baby Love

Look out. Duck-face...INCOMING!
L-R: Vicky, Lady Champ, Baby Love




Baby Love (real name Daisy Castro) is now approximately 43 years old and has settled in Atlanta with two kids.
There was once a rumour that she broke her neck and died whilst performing a headspin. Hmmmm.
For those inclined among you, her Facebook page is here.
I don't care what you think, I still reckon 'Hey You (The Rock Steady Crew)' is DOPE. Yeah, it has singing in the verses by the other members of the group which most certainly contains a high level of cheese but that's what gives it it's charm!


Also check this page for a great read of a reprinted magazine article about the RSC in 1984. I liked the quote from the disgruntled, classically-trained traditional dancer, Alexis, who says

"Breakers are taking jobs away form professional dancers. The trade journals Variety and Show Business, advertise for breakers to act in commercials, films, plays. We can't wait until the whole thing passes over.
I went to audition for a movie the other day, where there was a call for dancers. They (the breakers) took some of the spots away from us. I don' really resent it, though, because I know it's just a passing fad."

She was almost right. Commercially at least.

Very sad news about a mum of only 43 years old. Thoughts to all that are close to Ms Melodie.

I just happened across this old post and noticed that you mentioned "I'd hate to see what Sparky D looks like now *shudder*".

Well wonder no more, Reepz, old bean. Follow the link to see a recent Sparky D pic. All I can say is 'CHRIST on a bike'.
