In the latest episode of the Cult Film Club podcast, we are talking about one of my favorite movies, Krush Groove, from 1985. It’s a fun discussion and a great look back at essentially the genesis of my interest in rap, which was around early 1985 when the first Fat Boys album and Run-DMC’s second album, King of Rock, was released.
Later that year, in October 1985, the movie Krush Groove was released. I did a small review of the movie back in 2010 for the 25th anniversary. Check out episode #36 of the Cult Film Club podcast for my more in depth thoughts on the movie.
What I really want to talk about is, why wasn’t there a Krush Groove novelization? The obvious answer is that it was a movie focusing on the music industry and it may have been hard to translate that since there are at least 3 music video sized interludes in the movie. But that shouldn’t have stopped them. I just finished reading the novelization to Jason X and that book expands the sparse 1 hour and 20 minute movie into a 400+ page novel. You telling me something couldn’t be done with Krush Groove?
So, to correct this rather EGREGIOUS oversight, I created my own Krush Groove novelization based mostly on the design of the soundtrack album cover.
I think it goes without saying that I would have read the sh*t out of this book.
