From the name, L.A. Salami sounds like a Californian punk band. In fact, he’s a UK ‘postmodern blues and urban folk’ musician, and Dancing With Bad Grammar: The Director's Cut is his debut album. Salami utters confessional / political lyrics on a wide-range of songs, some quiet and subtle, others big and brassy. Out on Sunday Best.

7/10 Theo Teastrain Customer review, 6th March 2017
A very good start to what will surely be a very long and esteemed career for L.A. Salami, full name Lookman Adekunle Salami.
His style and live presence precedes him and I was recommended the album having heard very positive things. 16 tracks on the record as well as very long song lengths make this a real slog of an album but the dynamic approach to it, switching between full band and pure acoustic tracks help to break it up. L.A. definitely has a lot to say and in that comes my slight criticism. A more measured and palatable could be considered approach to his next releases, perhaps focusing on perhaps quality rather than quanitity.. That said, he is picking up fans and respect left, right and centre with his unique brand of social commentary and if there is an appetite to hear his opinions, who am I to tell him to reduce the portion size.
There is no-doubt an abundance of raw talent and ability behind the style and beauty of L.A. Salami's music, he has a lot to learn and develop but I, like many others, will be watching and listening as he does this. A must listen to record.
