Boo-Yaa T.R.I.B.E.

David Toop, The Face, January 1990

A LITTLE suburban parking spot in Carson, Los Angeles, and balmy tranquility hangs in the air like Valium fallout. There are harsh alien sounds, though: RHHHUGGH, SMANG, GUHHFF, MROAGH, GHUA-GHAU-GHAU-GHAU-GHAU, PSHAANG, PSHA-PSHAANG, BUK-WANWANWANWAGA.
