Killer Album - Ruthless Rap Assassins

Killer Album
Released on 11th OCTOBER 2010. 1990 they shifted the nucleus of UK rap away from the capital to their native Manchester, offering a thinking man's alternative to the indie-dance of Happy Mondays and Stone Roses.

Their debut LP, KILLER ALBUM, reflected the black British experience in a unique, often poignant way. All the way live from the notoriousNorth Hulme estate, the trio of Anderson, Carson and a pre-Black Grape Kermit eschewed the phony Brooklyn accents of many London contemporaries for a hardbitten, sometimes bitter but always razor sharp trawl through the harsh realities of low-budget living packed with depth, humour and social comment. Using a sampledelic approach incorporating elements of rock, reggae, pop and jazz segued by producer Greg Wilson their open embrace of diversity has haunted the grooves of countless acts to flow in their wake. The 20th anniversary edition of KILLER ALBUM comes with extensive liner notes and rare photos.

Organised Rhyme
MC Duke has always been a top-ranker. The self-styled 'English rasta' was first spotted by UK original Derek B, destroying all challengers at a London open-mic contest. And even though the verbal whirlwind didn’t have the obligatory demo tape to his name, he was fast-tracked into the studio by Music Of Life producer Simon Harris - a prescient bit of business that quickly yielded British rap's first essential long player. A funky time capsule of hip-hop circa 1989, this remastered and expanded edition of ORGANISED RHYME comes with no less than 7 bonus tracks, including a rare live freestyle and four brand spanking new tracks - ample proof that the fire still burns strongly in this irrepressible blue-blooded legend of British hip-hop. Our Price: £9.95
