Unheard Beastie Boys material in vault: producer
A producer that worked on four Beastie Boys albums said that the hip-hop group has plenty of unheard material in their vault that could be released in the wake of member Adam Yauch's death.
In an interview with NME, Mario Caldato Jr. (a.k.a. Mario C), said that the material could see the light of day but cautioned that the band isn't in any rush to put it out at this time.
"There's a handful of extra stuff from each record apart from Paul's Boutique," he said. "I actually went through it all recently and checked out a few things that weren’t used for Hello Nasty and there’s definitely two or three tracks that didn’t get utilized that could be utilized."
He added: "We'll take it slowly. No-one’s thinking of doing anything right away. It's too soon."
Caldato worked on Beastie albums Paul's Boutique, Check Your Head, Ill Communication and Hello Nasty. He also said that the band recorded with Yauch, a.k.a. MCA, shortly before his death in May of cancer at age 47.
"The guys told me that he wanted to record. So they hung out and did what they used to do -- just lay it down and have fun," he said.
