I’ve been getting back into Garage recently after buying a mate’s collection. We used to go out to loads of Garage clubs back in the late 90s when I was just a young lad and it’s wicked to now be able to put names to some of these tunes.
The bad thing is that I’m now addicted to this stuff and eBay and Discogs are doing some very bad things to my bank balance, even if loads of these tunes can be picked up for almost nothing.
Anyway, something here from Grant Nelson, a man responsible for so much good music it’s ridiculous. He started out making hardcore as Wishdokta and made manyclassictunes in the Happy Hardcore genre before it went way too four to the floor and cheesy. He is probably most well known for his Garage and House output, running several huge Garage labels like Nice ‘N’ Ripe and all of its sub-labels that churned out the tunes in the 90s.
This is the filthiest song I’ve ever heard by a long, long way. Ghostface Killah is an awesome man who has put out some incredible music but is also clearly insane.
Taken from his latest album Ghostdini Wizard Of Poetry In Emerald City which has an amazing name and even better cover (click the link), the song needs no comment from me as it really says all it needs to itself. Look up the lyrics if you can’t follow along, they’re too funny…
