Feel like a King.....................................pluck a string.
I always liked Fingathing. The pairing of Sneaky and Peter Parker made for brilliantly fun albums so it was a sad day when the Grand Central label went under leaving more Fingathing albums looking unlikely for a while. Discovering that Sneaky had his own album out was pure luck and it's brilliant.
I had always assumed that the Fingathing pairing left Sneaky with purely double bass duties and Peter Parker with all the scratching, button pressing and knob twiddling. However, this album suggestions that idea was way off and it was always a more balanced mix of work as this album has a lot of what I like about Fingathing.
I was expecting this to be ALL about the double bass type work with maybe some clever beats to help build the tracks up a bit but 'Feel Like A King...Pluck A String' really sounds like Finathing just taking itself more seriously. Basically, if you can imagine a Fingathing album without the film/comics reference samples you would be pretty close.
Stand out track for me is Beduija but the whole album really is quality.
I hope Peter Parker has some of his own albums planned too.
P.S. The 'Feel Like A Remix' companion album is also very good. It has the wonderful and moody Sneaky track 'A Dark Little Joy' and most of the original albums tracks have been remixed (not as good as the original albums but very good remixes though).
