Melvin Van Peebles had such a good time working with Burnt Sugar the Arkestra Chamber bringing "Sweet Sweetback's Badasssss Song:The Hood Opera" to life on the Paris stage, that he decided to continue the collaboration. After enlisting Jared Michael Nickerson, Burnt Sugar's bassist & business manager, and members Paula Henderson, Bruce Mack, Mikel Banks, Will Martina, Andre Lassalle and Chris Eddleton, M.V.P. titled his new band 'Laxative.' When asked why the title, Melvin replied, "Why? ...'cause they're a crew of musicians who make sh.. happen and get sh.. done. That's why!" The new show,"Yeah unhunH Sure ... The Rubber, ie. Your Behind, Meeting The Road, Do Jesus, Hand To Heaven Street Songs," will feature tunes taken from Melvin's Broadway shows, movies and recordings.
