Named after the 1940s passenger company that shipped Black Americans to the motherland Africa during civil rights struggles, this Leeds outfit are a cross-cultural blend of Asian pop and electronic dance music, centred around the "mouth and trousers" of Indian-Trinidadian Choque Hosein. This, their major label debut, has a seamless, film-like quality. There's the rich orchestral sweep and Indian percussion in "Ethnic Suicide Of The Volga Boatman"; the sensation of pop kitsch colliding with Two Tone on "Superfly & Bindi" (Choque's homage to The Specials); and the audacious psychedelic take on Indian restaurant muzak with "Inder Automatic". Though less overtly political than Asian Dub Foundation, the other proponents of what has been labelled "New Asian Cool", this trio have made a subtle yet powerful impact, creating an intensely melodic debut that can be replayed again and again. --Lucy O'Brien

Format: Audio CD
I bought this because of their outstanding performance at the Mercury awards. I thought they truly deserved to win (although they didn't). This album deserves more than to be categorised as "New Asian Cool". Yes, there is an 'East meets West' fusion of influences, but there are also some quality tracks which set them above such generalisations, and to appeal to a much wider audience. "Swimmer", "Low BMW" and "Superfly & Bindi" all stand out as my favourite tracks. This album has not lost any of its charms despite many, many repeat playings. It's the sort of album which constantly surprises, the songs have so much depth; there is always something new to hear in them. A truly remarkable album, which any music fan should be proud to have in their collection.
