When TVT Records shut down this year, our honest first response was But what about Dude N Nem? For the Dude dudes to get signed by what was a leftfield-but-focused label gave us hope that their album would get a great push and much deserved attention (And maybe what? Ying Yang-level commercial success?). So now that that deal's done, we're left to monitoring YouTube for random fan videos of hidden Dude N Nem gems like "Get Away!" (above) with cut-up footage of bootleg Godzilla. And then there's "Believe", which after last night, Obama fans can do a little more, but doesn't do much to make us believe in the reality of a Dude N Nem album anytime soon. Steve Gottlieb, holler at us, and we will sell that joint out of our bike baskets.
