Beastie Boys’ ’90s Punk Record ‘Aglio E Olio’ Hits Streaming Services: Listen

The Beastie Boys are back, sort of.

The Hall of Fame inducted hip-hop crew have finally released Aglio E Olio on streaming services, a quarter century after they cut it.

Aglio E Olio represents the Beasties in full-on punk mode. Its eight tracks are raw, high-octane and, at just 11 minutes in total, the EP has more pace than Usain Bolt. Think “Heart Attack Man” from Ill Communication, their classic album from 1994.

Recorded the following year, in 1995, the EP was originally released on CD and 12″ vinyl record by the band’s now-defunct label Grand Royal.

Amery “AWOL” Smith, drummer with Los Angeles thrash veterans Suicidal Tendencies, guests on the record alongside Ad-Rock, Mike D and the late MCA.

Next month sees the release of Beastie Boys Music, a 20-song career retrospective (due out Oct. 23). It follows the Spike Jonze-helmed Beastie Boys Story: A Live Documentary which arrived earlier this year on Apple TV.

For the record, “Aglio e Olio” means “Garlic and Oil” in Italian.
