virus065 (1988) CD - out of print
Now available exclusively on iTunes and other digital e-tailers!

Inspired San Francisco band that successfully combined elements of ethnic rhythm, industrial percussion and punk roots into a highly energetic and raw experience. Intense socially-conscious lyrics complete the mix, including their underground favorite, "Television (the drug of a nation)"! Features Michael Franti and Rono Tse, who soon afterwards spawned The Disposable Heroes Of Hiphoprisy and Spearhead.

"Political rap/punk/industrial hybrid featuring Michael Franti and Rono Tse, later of Disposable Heroes of Hiphoprisy and Spearhead, The Beatnigs made some really strange music that strides the fine line between bizarre and plain ridiculous!"
- Rock-A-Rolla
