The Streets Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records
The classic debut before he went a bit soft. This was genuinely thrilling back in 2002 and it's combination of UK garage/hip-hop and Mike Skinner's lyrical observations were a unique and fascinating combination. Now we have Sleaford Mods a lot of his work sounds a bit....meh... but this is the good one and still sounds fresh.
Split 7” first released in 1978 on Romantik Records, a label at the core of the nascent Belgian punk scene. X-Pulsion (containing a member of Chainsaw), are as bouncy, basic and shouty as all good punk should be, and Streets fit the same bill. Remastered and reissued with restored original artwork by No Good Records.
Upon its release 10 years ago, The Streets second album, A Grand Don’t Come For Free was instantly hailed as another masterpiece to equal his initial clarion call, Original Pirate Material.
Unavailable on vinyl for the best part of the intervening decade, Be With Records marks its second release by issuing Mike Skinner’s electronic soap opera on this format.
