    Bought a CD yesterday by "The Streets" called "Original Pirate Material".

    It is in no way like anything Dinosaur related but is very, very good indeed. <img> <img> <img> <img> <img> <img>

    Worth checking out. The web site is http://www.the-streets.co.uk

    If one of you likes it then I’ll be content at having spread the word!

    really can’t get into them, and I love hip-hop. Just sounds like a whack white boy talking about pills. bought the album due to "hype" – wish I’d taken heed of what Public Enemy told us all those years ago. Flav – damn you were right, boyyyyyyyyyyeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee.

    ISee where you’re coming from Javro – maybe they don’t translate too well. The bit where he talks about ending up in a kebab shop in South London after a night out drinking Stella, trying to deal with "You lookin’ at me?" type drunk yobs probably doesn’t have much to do with American life and culture.

    It does however (and sadly) have alot to do with living in London and going out on a Friday night…

    Still, alot of the lyrics made me chuckle – the one where he’s comparing a drunk yob to a peaceful dope smokin’ chap amused me, and I love the music.

    Ah well, each to their own….

But you couldn’t compare the two… A tricky one. I like his mixing of the trivial and cultural references – and he seems to be pretty clued up bearing in mind how young he is (or at least looks)…

    yep – am indeed a "limey". Am quite au fait with kebabs and stella, although prefer to stay north of the river <img>

    Am fairly sure that our North American brothers and sisters have their share of "you looking at me" types. Think they call ’em jocks…..

    And also, I do really like the video for the latest track, he does look really young, but kinda cool. What’s yer name, where ya from, what you on – takes me back to my student days.

    You gonna go to the J gigs over here? Been ages since I met someone from London who likes this music – we could go for a stella and kebab beforehand, and then look at people…..

    Javro,

    Yeah, was thinking things over last night – last thing I did after wittering as if you were from LA or something was check your profile…ah – London then…too late by then. Had a pleasant evening chuckling to myself about the few people that would be thinking how much of a arse AndrewD was…

    Sorry mate, but you’ll see where I’m comin’ from. The Streets are great – but there is no greater talent than J!

    I will absolutely be going to see J when he comes over. Definately in London – also have friends up in Nottingham who are similarly obsessed by J – so would def’ go up there if he plays there again.

    You’re right about people down here though – I normally get "who???" or "Is that the band that did that freak scene song?".

    THESE PEOPLE NEED TO BUY MORE LIGHT!!!!

    I’m sure there will be a flurry of activity on the boards from London based J fans as soon we know dates and places.

    Can’t wait…

    NB : You using the phrase "whack white boy hip-hopper talking about pills" made me think you were from the US…..don’t know why. Maybe "whack" was the decider for me……… <img>

    At least you get a response when you mention J. I just get a "Duh" look. I also hate having people think of the Flaming Lips as "that band that did that vaseline song"
