The disinterested ILB end of year rundown: #2 DJ Quik and Kurupt – Hey Playa (Moroccan Blues)

I suppose there is some humour to be had in what is, basically, a weed paean being laced by Kurupt, who quite clearly goes through crackpipes like most of us go through cans of original flavour Relentless. Read more…

The disinterested ILB end of year rundown: #5 Napoleon – I Try To Despise The Ugly People (But The Beautiful Ones Keep Turning Me Down)

It’s kinda appropriate that Napoleon and Playboy Tre are side-by-side in this most useless of year-end countdowns (I’ll get it done today and be back zinging tomorrow, I promise), because they were, as hinted above, the kind of albums I’d be foghorning about if I cared about music anymore.

And you sort of spend five minutes staring at it trying to work your bearings out and going “So if that’s where Gamestation is nowadays, then that butchers would be where Reflex: The 80s Bar is now?” Enough time has passed to make what is literally exactly the same place hard to identify. I think that “STARSTRUKK” is your high street and “Whistle While You Twurk” is the photo of it from 1912 with the open-top busride for the county cricket team riding down it. Read more…
