Brandon Flowers tweet from earlier today appears to reference the 1988 song, ‘Posse on Broadway’, by Sir Mix-A-Lot. This track featured on his debut album, ‘Swass’.

In the picture above, a Roland TR-808 Rhythm Composer is depicted. This was one of the first programmable drum machines and was released in early 1980. This machine is also mentioned in ‘Posse on Broadway’.
Given that Brandon states ‘My posse’s still on Broadway.’, he may be alluding to some sort of connection or influence derived from this song or the location mentioned in this song, Seattle’s Capitol Hill district.
