International Wrecking Crew - Born To Break

Well, it's snowing like a mofo outside so I'm glad I'm indoors sipping a hot cup o' tea from my Hardnoise mug.
 This is the kind of record that makes me feel that nostalgic kinda warmth, not that I ever had or had even heard it when it came out in '84 but definitely one I'd still have now if I'd bought it then, if you get me. Solid beats, party atmosphere, good clean rhymes, makes me almost want to dust off my Mileta tracksuit, (remember those?) and break like I was born to. I had a a sky blue one with dark blue trim. There was a rather large kid at school, Ian,  who had the same one and he took a dim view of me sporting mine at school. I could break though and he couldn't so in my mind I was more worthy. I didn't tell him that though; I'm no hero now. Some of his mates told him to give me a seeing to but he kind of pretended to punch me 'cos he wasn't really the kind of person to bray the shit out of anyone for anything really and I kind of knew him since junior school.
 Me and my crew were challenged to a battle with him and his cronies one afternoon at school as the snow was coming down big style and we were summoned to the assembly hall before they decidedbeing sent home. We got on the stage all ready to entertain the masses but the headmaster came up and stopped us and announced the school was closing because of the weather and their blushes were spared. They were all talk anyway, had no idea about b-boy style and we'd have burned 'em and made 'em look like the fools that they were.
