Mack-in' with Lifesavas

The members of Lifesavas have no problem giving it up for their influences. Their newest album, Gutterfly, is a love letter to the Blaxploitation era and a soundtrack to a film that doesn't exist–yet. Here, Vursatyl and Jumbo talk about the movies and actors that influenced the album, from Superfly to Black Caesar, and Pam Grier to Fred Williamson. The movie version of Gutterfly isn't a full-blown feature yet, but Jumbo and Vursatyl have been in character as Bumpy Johnson and Sleepy Floyd and, as an added bonus, loaned us some of their self-produced scenes to preview in this episode!
