November 2000 will no longer be known as "election" month, but will officially be proclaimed the "month of the Beastie." The Beastie Boys have once again decided to take the world by storm via all possible media outlets. To coincide with their limited edition vinyl release of The Sounds of Science, the Beasties will unleash a photo exhibition in New York exploring band's history. The limited engagement exhibit starts November 16 at Gavin Brown's Enterprise (Chelsea), and will also feature footage from the Beasties' upcoming double-disc DVD collection, dropping November 7. All items sold will benefit Milarepa (an organization supporting Tibet's liberation from China) and will feature pieces from Spike
Jonze, Ricky Powell and Beastie Adam Yauch (aka Nathanial Hornblower).
November 21 is when you can get your hands on the four-record Sounds Of Science, which includes a 72-page hardcover
book, unreleased Beasties photos, and commentary by the group on each track. The DVD will be smoking with videos for 18 songs, along with audio remixes byMoby, Prince Paul, Peanut Butter Wolf and Fatboy Slim.
BS 2000, the side project of Adam Horovitz
(a.k.a. King Ad-Rock) and Amery "AWOL" Smith, will release its second album, Simply Mortified, in February, following the new single "Buddy,"
due in November.
Horovitz has also made his remix of a speech by Green Party
Presidential candidate Ralph Nader available on the Beasties' Web site
