The Show: Oddball UK Hip Hop

Strange U has a new EP out on Eglo Records consisting of weird, murky, grainy hip hop.

How weird? Well the record label describes it as “rap music never sounding so orthopaedic” and that Strange U are ” invoking the spirts of Oshun, Vishnu, Apollo, Sobek and Jim Henson” in order to “crush Duran Duran rapper with a Dr Claw beer mit”.

For some reason this all makes us hark back to the Infinite Livez’ “Bush Meat”  album from 2004. So to enable you to compare and contrast here are Strange U’s “Klaatu Barada Nikto” and Infinite Livez’ “The Adventures Of The Lactating Man”

(actually it is mainly contrast)

The Show: Lobsters

To celebrate the 35th anniversary of the release of the first Derek & Clive record we present “Jump”

Maybe we should have played “The Worst Job” instead, it would have segued nicely into the Squeaky Lobster track.

Still on a Cook & Moore tangent, take advantage of Trunk Records’ ridiculously cheap Bedazzled soundtrack offering – 50p for the full download. Get in while it lasts.
