Review ' Planet B-Boy

Were you hitting your teenage years around 1980 ? If so, you may remember the explosion that was beat-boying or more commonly….break dancing. The Sugar Hill Gang and Grandmaster Flash were bringing the streets into our white bread living rooms with their edgy new style of music called RAP and life was never going to be the same again. Alongside the rappers came the b-boy crews such as the Rock Steady Crew and the New York City Breakers. These kids would throw down a square of vinyl underlay on the hard cement , flip on their oversized boom boxes and start spinning, twirling, popping and locking in a manner that had us suburban white kids dumb struck. From then on we would hang out to see what new song featured anyone rap dancing or breaking and if we new Countdown ( the Australian version of Bandstand) was going to be featuring a break dancing crew, it was Must Watch TV !!
