Caveman was a British hip hop group originally from High Wycombe, England, consisting of MCM, the Principal, and Diamond J. They were the first British hip hop group to be signed to a major U.S. record label, Profile Records, and quickly established themselves as one of the UK’s more popular and versatile acts.

The group’s first releases were the twelve inch single “Victory” (Profile, 1990) and “Fry You Like Fish” (Profile, 1990), and the I’m Ready EP (Profile, 1990). This established their jazz-based style of hip hop, influenced by U.S. artists such as Gang Starr. The song “I’m Ready”, however, was based on Jimi Hendrix’s, “Crosstown Traffic” and showed early on a liking for the harder style that they adopted for later releases. “I’m Ready” was a popular song, and still regularly turns up on hip hop compilation albums today.

Their debut album, Positive Reaction (Profile, 1990), was released to critical acclaim and cemented their reputation as one of the UK’s top hip hop acts. The following year, the group released The Victory EP (Profile, 1991) and then took a break from recording. When they returned with The Whole Nine Yards…And Then Some (Profile, 1992) the group had undergone a radical changes in style. While their earlier sound had been predominantly based on mellow jazz samples, the new album was predominantly bass heavy, hardcore hip hop. The move was a success, and today their second album is Caveman’s most in demand recording, often selling above its original asking price and considered a rare find.

Shortly after the release of the album, the group decided to go their separate ways. MCM had a short-lived solo career, releasing some twelve inches and guesting on other artists’ tracks – such as Dodge City Productions’ “Understand This” from their Steppin’ Up and Out (4th & Broadway, 1993) album. The Principal went on to produce other artist’s tracks, such as a remix of Run-D.M.C.’s “Ooh, What’cha Gonna Do?” from their Down with the King (Profile, 1993) album. Diamond J went on to provide scratches for Maxim’s Hell’s Kitchen (XL Recordings, 2000) album. None ever reached the same level of success as they did with Caveman.

Almost 20 years after the last Caveman album, front man MCM incorporated the name Caveman on his first solo studio album The Gospel: The Missing Gems of MCM Caveman (I-innovate UK, 2011). The double album included several unreleased tracks from the 1990s.

In between songs lead singer Caleb Followill thanked the crowd in his soft-spoken drawl before launching into go-for-broke guitar riffs on songs like powerhouse rocker “Don’t Matter.” The bass-heavy “Closer” sparked cheers from fans with Matthew Followill taking the opportunity to impress the crowd by playing the guitar with his mouth on the strings.Caleb loosened up with the crowd toward the end of the set.

“I don’t want to be a dick, but it’s been a while since we’ve played these songs, and I’m going to feel really awkward if no one sings along,” he said. “And it’s OK if the boys sing too, we’ve all been drunk and know the feeling,” he continued before launching into “Sex on Fire.”

“Use Somebody” rounded out the set before the band thanked the crowd and left the stage.

Amazing show by The Kings!

About The Performance

Although things may have been looking bleak for Passion Pit and their fans this past week, the band rolled into the legendary Ed Sullivan Theatre on a warm Wednesday night for their Live on Letterman webcast looking as if they hadn’t missed a beat.

After being forced to play DJ-sets for a string of shows in Canada when approximately 75% of their gear was destroyed in a Chicago storm last week, Passion Pit showed up more than ready to hit the stage in their proper form for the first time in a whole week and gave fans a live experience that they won’t soon forget.

The band marched into the Ed Sullivan Theatre in support of their latest album “Gossamer” – the critically acclaimed followup to 2009’s “Manners” LP that had the band working tirelessly for months to perfect.

Speaking on the new songs and preceding recording process in the pre show interview, lead singer Michael Angelakos expressed how on “Gossamer”, songs like ‘Constant Conversations’ really showcase what the band is capable of, especially in a live setting.

Angelakos also went on to talk about the challenges that the band faced when all of their equipment got wrecked last week – and how the bands crew tirelessly worked to get everything up and running again as they dumped gallons of water out of the bands mellotrons, synths and more.

Fortunately, “the old rice trick” worked and the band were set to play their first non DJ-set in a week for a theatre that was packed to capacity with ‘pit fans.

Passion Pit then hit the stage, promptly at 8PM from the back of the audience and quickly got to work. The band opened the show with a blistering rendition of their new song ‘I’ll Be Alright’ and then hit right into ‘The Reeling’, off 2009’s “Manners” LP.

The band definitely appeared to be especially amped as well as relieved to be playing with their own gear again (as well as to be playing indoors). When they hit into the third song of the night, ‘Carried Away’, off 2012’s “Gossamer”, fans went completely nuts as they sang “Sorry ’bout things that I’ve said. Always let it get to my head” After incredible renditions of ‘Eyes As Candles’, ‘Take A Walk’ and ‘Constant Conversations’, the band broke into “Cry Like A Ghost”, the sixth new song of the night off 2012’s “Gossamer”. The crowd was behind the band with every word and the energy in Ed Sullivan Theatre was booming. Before closing out the show, the band surprised fans with a rendition of ‘Where I Come From’, off the 2012 soundtrack to The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2. Passion Pit then hit fans with their 2009 hit ‘Sleepyhead’ before saying goodbye and rounding out the show with ‘Little Secrets’ to wrap up another memorable evening at the house The Beatles built.
