I don't think they were ever "signed" to Stones Throw, they just had one single put out and later Wolf put out the Fraudulent EP

PB Wolf's explanation:

"PEANUT BUTTER WOLF WRITES: Back in 1993, I was living in San Jose and part of a very small, yet dedicated hip hop scene that had to travel to San Francisco to be a part of any kind of organized event. The Wake Up Show with MC Sway was just starting to get it's rep on commercial KMEL, The Bomb was a magazine and not yet a record label, Gavin held yearly hip hop conventions attended by all, and I was in a group with a rapper Charizma that had just gotten signed to Hollywood Basics. It was a jazzy, smooth time for hip hop with artists like Gangstarr, Tribe, and Lord Finesse getting equal time in our tape decks. More so than signed groups though, Charizma and I continuously bumped our own shit and the "blue tape" by fellow San Jose group Homeliss Derilex in my Ford Escort. We called it the blue tape because the covers were made at Kinkos on fluerecent blue paper. We couldn't believe a group with that sound actually lived in San Jose, let alone the west coast. Both us and them got a little slack for sounding more like the east coast, but then again, most people who were in the game longer understood the Bronx's influence in the grand scheme. Ask anyone who really knew the "real" from the fake during that "Keep It Real" era. The HD's were on top of the stack. They didn't have any gimmick, and they lived in San Jose, which were two strikes against them getting signed. This is right before the indy label renaissance of '96-'97 where everybody was putting out their own records instead of waiting around to get discovered. When I started Stones Throw in '96, the Homeliss Derilex were the second group I put out on 12" single (after Charizma). The song "Cash Money" did well, getting major plug from the Beat Junkies and giving us our first press oversees at a time where they were just beginning to take note of the Bay Area scene. Fast forward to 2002 and well over 50 releases later. While working on a track listing for a new PB Wolf mix CD, I decided I wanted to put an unreleased HD's track on there. This gave me the idea of releasing a whole 6 song EP of their stuff on vinyl-only for the DJs and hip hop collectors. These songs were collected over a period of '93-'94. A lot of people talk about this period as the "golden era of hip hop" and wish new stuff still sounded like it. You have well respected artists like Edan, PUTS, Ugly Duckling, and J5 doing their thing with that classic sound of yesteryear, slightly updated. At the same time, why not expose people to the stuff that was recorded back then, but never heard? The HD's stand the test of time."

They've have a total of three CD's out (Fraudulent, Raise It Up and HD's vs the SP1200) and they're all good in my opinion. The expanded edition of Fraudulent that is worth the cash.....just straight up dope songs.

they're one of my favorites.

HD's on Myspace

Yeah, they're unsung heroes for their early 90's stuff. I just tried to add them to my top friends on myspace, but I forgot how to do it.

oh my gawd, the dude PPW posted in my topic, damn!


Got another question, are the Stones Throw promos anything worth? I got promos from Dudley's Expressions, Jaylib's Champion Sound, the 2007 Promo Sampler and PBW & Charizma - Big Shots...didn't pay much to get them, won't sell them, they have personal value, just wondering if they are 'rare'.


And I wanna scoop up a promo for Guilty's album >_<

excuse me while i school this cat/.... :huh:

ok, so when you log onto your myspace page, you go to just below where the images of your top firends come up (on classic view)... theres a link in blue there saying "change my top friends"...

click there, and a bunch of profile pics come up highlighted in red.

in the search box, type in Homeliss Derilix. -this sometimes doesnt work, so just click the "H" link, and scroll to find their page if so...

(if the search does work All the red highlighted images will stay up, and the H.D. profile image will apear too...)

Click and drag that image into the top of the box, (pushing another one out)

Repeat, searching JustAnotherDJ instead of Homeliss Derilix...

pat yourself on the back

END
