Before there was Kool Keith, Old Dirty Bastard or 2 Live Crew - before there was hip hop, for that matter - there was Blowfly, performing X-rated songs with a funky groove. Born 60 years ago in Cochran, Georgia, Miami's Clarence Reid has recorded more than 40 albums during his illustrious career. He got his nickname as a child when his grandmother, after hearing him sing dirty versions of then popular songs - like 'Suck My Dick' for 'Do The Twist' - proclaimed, 'You is nastier than a blowfly.' In reality, there's a split personality involved in this man's music: there's Blowfly, the outrageously garbed creator of trash classics such as 'Shittin' on the Dock of the Bay' and 'Porno Freak,' and then there's Clarence Reid, who has recorded more than a dozen 'clean' albums over the years and penned songs for the likes of K.C. and the Sunshine Band, Gwen McRae, Betty Wright, and Sam and Dave. Many people cite Blowfly as being the first rapper with his 1965 'Rap Dirty' record, which was recorded for disco giants T.K. Records after the smash success of Sugar Hill Gang's 'Rapper's Delight.' Blowfly himself credits the 'soul talking' Southern radio DJs of the '50s and '60s as the pioneers of rap, but he is without dispute the first rapper to have a song banned, after an Alabama record store was busted for peddling 'Porno Freak.' Blowfly was also sued by the President of ASCAP for his 'What a Difference a Lay Makes.' (The music publishing honcho also happened to be the composer of the popular 'What a Difference a Day Makes.') Blowfly's sounds are a staple of modern-day hip hop. His music has been sampled by many rappers, including The Jurassic 5, (whose hit 'Quality Control' is backed by the outro from Weird World Of Blowfly) Ice Cube, Atmosphere and Puff Daddy. In 1991, Blowfly hooked up with Fishbone and Red Hot Chili Peppers bassist/wild man Flea to record 'Shake Your Thang' (clean) B&W 'Shake Your Ass' (X-rated), both of which are included on the soundtrack of Blow's legendary film, The Twisted World of Blowfly. The resulting relationship led to a series of shows with Flea and the Fishbone at Club Lingerie in Hollywood, Ca and multiple 'Nuttstalk' tours with Fishbone over the next decade. In 2003, Blowfly was interviewed by Miami-based journalist/drummer Tom Bowker for a cover story in the Broward-Palm Beach New Times. When asked why he hadn't played a Miami area gig in 20 years, he replied 'I don't have a band down here.' To which Bowker replied 'Want one?' Two months later, Blowfly's new band played Bowker's bachelor party and never looked back. In 2004, Bowker and his fellow bandmates -- keyboard player Mr. Lock (ex-everything for the Otis Redding progeny funk combo The Redding's), guitarist Chris Chavez and the recently disgraced, runaway bassist John-John (now replaced by Dennis 'The Menace' Murcia) -- teamed up to record Fahrenheit 69, Blowfly's first album dedicated to new, original material since 1988's Blowfly for President. Guest artists include: Afroman (of 'Because I Got High' fame) Slug (MC for Epitaph/Rhymesayers rap sensations Atmosphere), and Bay Area Electroclash freaks Gravy Train!!!! (Kill Rock Stars). Fahrenheit 69 will be released in May 2005, with a label announcement in February. Over the years, Blowfly's seen a lot of his contemporaries fall by the way side. His survival can partially be credited to the fact that while Blowfly is totally whacked in the head, Reid is a God-fearing, Bible-carrying Christian. 'I never drink, never smoke, and I never use drugs,' confesses Reid. 'I may go to hell, but it won't be for those things!' Steven Blush SPIN Magazine.
