E.U., originally known as Experience Unlimited, is one of D.C.'s original go-go bands, but they never scored a pop hit until 1988, when "Da Butt" became a dance sensation, thanks to Spike Lee's School Daze movie. While they didn't record many great albums -- 1989's Livin' Large, which was riding on the success of "Da Butt," came the closest -- each of their records has something that would appeal to hardcore funk fans. But E.U.'s strength was never captured on vinyl -- it was their energetic, groove-oriented live shows that earned them a large following in the '80s, not their records. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi
