A few of you may remember back in 2006 when I broke some news about the Coup’s Boots Riley and Rage Against the Machine/Audioslave shredder Tom Morello teaming up for a new super-group, called Street Sweeper Social Club.


Well, it took long enough for ‘em to unveil their project to the world at large, but looks like it’s gonna be worth the wait based on their main stage set here at Sasquatch this afternoon.


SSSC has easily generated the biggest buzz on day two of the festival. The band’s self-titled debut is due on June 16, so mark your calendars. And I managed to scored a bit of face time with the pop provocateurs shortly after their set.

Boots (first voice) and Tom talk about how they hooked up.


Tom on how even he was surprised by the three-quarters Soundgarden reunion that happened when they played Seattle in March.
