cwith eubank on thpliffths

uk hip hop...........a dirty word . nonsense .

here is a killer piece of plastic. all the way from 1988 on simon harris' music of life label .

music of life put out some crackin records which have been lost and forgotten about in the midsts of musical rewriting...........much like psychobilly..........a genre surely due a revival...or maybe we will have to wait for that from franz ferdinand whenever they don leather jackets and quiff their hair for the next will be back.

so ,yeah , mc duke . he was from east london and did this killer tune ....i'm riffin (english rasta) has the funkiest loop ever which underpins the entire tune . it has the force , brutality and funk of public enemy . the duke does not try and pretend to be american , he drops names like forest green , manor park ...areas close to his heart . i have 2 other 12s by the dukester , both good , but not a patch on this tune.

i never bought his album , which had a strange cover of him dressed in country gent style in front of huge country estate , wearing a monicle over eye , with his crew in tow...this kinda put me seemed like the duke was losin his 'street' edge ......

manor park keep dancin

Not hiphop but bend yer lugs round this. The human voice as instrument.
