Bad Brains Fire Burn Babylon Hardcore Hot Sauce

D.C.’s Punky Reggae Pioneers Turn Up The Heat Again

As if their triumphant return to the music scene isn’t enough, Bad Brains members Dr. Know & Darryl Jenifer have gotten into the pepper sauce trade. The trailblazing punk band’s website now sells bottles of a tongue-blazing concoction called “Fire Burn Babylon Hardcore Hot Sauce.” Bad Brains’ love of reggae music is no secret. The dreadlocked D.C. punk quartet’s self-titled 1982 debut album interspersed blistering hard core tracks with lilting dubbed-out riddims like “I Love I Jah.” The first single from their latest album, “Into The Future,” has been issued on red, green, and gold limited edition vinyl (click through photos above). But this “small-batch scotch-bonnet-pepper-based sauce” is their first foray into West Indian cuisine.  “Fire Babylon is a perfect blend of heat and sweet, with the “Secret 77″ recipe,” adds Darryl, the bassist. “Dr. Know and I have returned to Hot Sauce Heaven with this roots, rock, rubba dub style hot sauce.” So why not check out their new sounds while you decide if you can take the heat? Audio After The Jump…
