Mr Scruff Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records
The unshaven lord of acid and trip-hop -- and prodigal son of Ninja Tune -- is back with a 12", with some help from friends. Berlin house producer Max Graef takes on "We Are Coming" and gives it his signature touch, while on the b-side Scruff gets in a time machine and gives his old tune "Feel Free" a dance-friendly look-over.
A 12” sample of Mr Scruff’s latest album on Ninja Tune, Friendly Bacteria. Two reworkings of the track ‘Render Me’, a track that features vocals from Denis Jones. I found his vocals pretty weird to be honest, especially put within the usually light and Scruffy sound of the track, but maybe that isn’t such a bad thing. Cover has some bacteria drawn by the Scruff himself.
Friendly Bacteria is the seventh full-length album by Mr. Scruff, otherwise known as Andy Carthy from Manchester. Famously plying his trade on the Ninja Tune label since his second album, Keep It Unreal, in 1999, Friendly Bacteria is regarded as his most complete work to date. The completeness of his work, according to the man himself, is down to time spent jamming and working with other musicians.
Friendly Bacteria is available as an over-engineered digipak CD and double heavyweight vinyl LP.
