Funk group Skull Snaps were quite a mystery when they recorded their self-titled album in 1973. The members’ identities were completely anonymous and the group quickly disbanded after the release of their only studio album. ⁣

Though they weren’t a group for long, their album ‘Skull Snaps’ became one of the most legendary rare funk records. The drum intro from their song “It’s A New Day” would be sampled countless times on songs from artists like Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Ice-T, Common, and Lords of the Underground to name just a few. ⁣
