    Dudes...

    Pharcyde

    Tour name: Bizarre Ride II 20th Anniversary Concert

    November 2012 sees the 20th Anniversary of one of the finest Hip Hop albums of all time "Bizarre Ride II the Pharcyde".
    The Pharcyde return for a one off exclusive concert to celebrate this seminal piece of work at the Clapham Grand.
    Released in 1992 on Delicious Vinyl, "Bizarre Ride II the Pharcyde" introduced the world to one of the most innovative and original rap groups the world has seen. "Ya Mama", "Passin' me by", "Otha Fish", "Pack the Pipe", "Officer" are all included on the debut album. In fact, the album is so strong that every track could have been a hit single.
    AGMP brought the band over to play their first UK shows in 1993, one night at the Jazz Cafe, one slot at the Phoenix Festival and one memorable night at Subterania in London where the band played on a double bill with Gil Scott-Heron. The Pharcyde have returned to the UK many times since then and have always played to packed crowds and have a reputation for one of the finest live hip hop groups. The Pharcyde will be playing with their regular live band for this one off special.


    AND I CAN'T FUCKING WELL GO :(

    Oh man! I wish I could do that! Just no way I can justify the expense this close to Christmas.

    Any other Childish Gambino fans here? Or is he too mainstream for this thread?

    Childish Gambino is great. Has a genuinely unique perspective.

    I don't think anyone in here has a problem with people selling records tbh. Or are you only listening to him because he is popular?

    Because that would be fucking dumb.

    Brap, brap, old chap.

    Why would you only listen to someone cause they're popular? A lot of the music I listen to would be mainstream but that's due to not having the time or willingness to search for underground music.

    What I meant about mainstream is people seem to use this thread to find new music that wouldn't be widely known, didn't know if the discussion was limited to that.

    You've hardly ever seen him live? He was supposed to be performing in Ireland last year but the gig got cancelled.

    I've recently listened to CG's album (Camp). Sounds like a cross between Lupe Fiasco and Kanye West, seems very heavily influenced by the latter. Quite funny at times and worth listening to, but nothing special imo.

    Also reminds me that I need to watch Community.

    Dead Prez glitched - free download /friendpimp

    A strange game. The only winning move is not to play.

    Thanks for the heads up. It also seems to have the most epic, incredible album cover I've ever seen

    Cruising around You Tube I found this clip of Doc Brown incorporating some rhymes into a stand up comedy routine. Quite interesting. Bit hit and miss but be mostly pulls it off.

    Interesting guy Doc Brown. Good albums but has a bit more to him as well. He's Zadie's Smith's brother so obviously quite a brainy family.

    DJ Woody - Happy Feet (free). Direct mp3 link.

    It's kind of a b-boy / turntablist / breakdance style mix. It's fucking EXCELLENT.

    And if lyrics from the Mr Oizo Flatbeat mash-up at about 45 minutes doesn't at least make you smile then you are dead inside.

    Love DJ Woody. Look forward to hearing that.

    The Edward Scissortongue album that came out last week is a bit good by the way.

    A dark downbeat album but brilliant nonetheless:

    Brap, brap, old chap.

    Really like this new J Rawls & P Blackk tune:


    Looking forward to the album.

    The J Rawls & Casual album from earlier in the year was awesome so this should be good too.

    Edit: "Cats is mad cute" LOL

    I've been watching a load of old Professor Green battles on Youtube. I really can't stand the guy and particularly what he's become, but you have to respect the talent he had in the old days. Him Vs Life is a particular highlight.

    I couldn't, much to my annoyance. Gonna see Dj Krush early next year which should be novel.

    DJ Shadow set cut for being "too future"

    Catching up with a few of the UK Hip Hop albums I missed this year and I stumbled across a couple of belters.

    Both old heads to be fair.

    The Skuff album Destroy Everything is great. He's been knocking around the scene for years but this is the first proper album I've heard from him. Will be looking into buying his older stuff I think.

    Brap, brap, old chap.

    Also, the Dr. Syntax & Tom Caruana album is all kinds of awesome.

    Caruana is always good but you never know what you are getting with Syntax. Best album of his career is the answer in this case.

    Brap, brap, old chap.
