If Company Flow's instrumental album Little Johnny from the Hospital: Breaks and Instrumentals, Vol.I is musical wallpaper then it's of the peeling, stained and cockroach-ridden variety. Opening with a track that tells the story of a little girl shooting a man who is trying to molest her ("Suzy Pulled a Pistol on Henry"), Little Johnny plays less like hip-hop than the soundtrack to some weird sci-fi horror film as performed by Pete Rock or The Wiseguys on a bad comedown. Unintelligible alien voices gibber and moan over skipping, stuttering beats; distorted, off-key samples struggle to keep time and deranged rock guitars roar over squealing horns and organs. The creeping paranoia of early tracks "Be Aware" and "Workers Needed" quickly gives way to the manic, insectoid madness of "Giga Pet Epiphany" and "Worker Ant Uprise" before careering towards the screaming mental-breakdown conclusion of "Happy Happy Kill Kill". Content and subject matter that can only be classified as "difficult listening" might be off-putting, but repeated listening is rewarded with appreciation of an album that is unique, multi-layered and above all, deliriously catchy. Listen, but listen with the lights on. --Paul Philpott

Dear God, what have I bought? Well, the short answer is 'Breakbeat Genius.' The best way to describe this album is...well...weird. But in a good way - like a dog on a treadmill. Its music Jim, but not as we know it....
Starting off with 'Comp', with its weird beats and strange dialling tones, Little Johnny grabs you by the throat and absolutely will not let go until your mind is as infected as his is. 'Suzie pulled a gun' is mental stuff - freaky, off-kilter beats and snatched samples of a young girl being raped by her fathers friend. This strange, nightmarish mesh continues over 'Friend vs Friend' and 'Lenolium' (to my mind, the worst track on the album - but still eons ahead of the beats found on many rap albums, which shows you how far El-P & Mr Len have pushed the boundaries of what hiphop and breakbeats are). For me, the album really picks up speed around 'Worker Needed' and from there your ears are dragged along for the ride. Electro stomping, mind confusing, bass heavy beats - I have the biggest grin on my face right now and it doesn't want to come off!! The best tracks on this LP are 'Giga Pet' and 'Worker Ant Uprise', whilst 'Happy Happy Joy Kill' is a fitting climax to an album that can easily be described as an urban horror movie for the ears.
For those considering purchasing this musical madness, 2 words of advice - 1: THIS IS INSTRUMENTAL ONLY!! That means no lyrics. And 2: Don't look too closely at the album artwork. Sick, sick boys.......

El-P and Mr Len from Company Flow produce an album full of breaks,beats and dark,dark humour. Rawkus productions are always tight and this proves once again that the best hip-hop does not have to be shock music for teenagers. So often break and beats albums are really only for dj's and head nodders but here you find yourself caught up in the infectious groove of tracks such as "friend vs. friend" and "bee aware". On the other hand dj's and turntablists will love this album. Perfect breaks for scratching over and the trademark Company Flow style are bound to delight. Actually released in 1999 this album is another strong offering from the excellent Rawkus label. Buy it now!

Company's Flow's first album, 'Funcrusher Plus', is one of the best rap records of the 90s, probably the best of the late 90s 'indy hip-hop' movement and certainly one of the most influential albums in recent times. The beats were stark, abrasive and abstract, while the lyrics were confrontational to say the least. On 'Little Johnny From The Hospital', the dense but intelligent lyrics from El-Producto and Bigg Jus from the first album are gone, which will probably disappoint many of the earlier Comapny Flow fans.
However, this seems to let the group concentrate their energies solely on the beats, which results in some extraordinary moments. As ever, 'conventional' or 'familiar' are words that are not applicable to Company Flow's production, as are 'jolly' or 'upbeat'. The samples and the way they intergrate with each other become more and more ominous and disquieting as certain phrases or sections are repeated. One track in particular, entitled "Suzy Pulls a Gun On Henry" is fairly disturbing, in that it is based on a spoken work sample with a molested teenager getting her own back on the older man. Well, I broke out in sweats.
There are filmic leanings too, reminiscent, though certainly not derivative, of DJ Shadow's masterpiece 'Endtroducing'. The almost cinematic soundscapes heard in tracks such as "Bee Aware" and "Friend Vs. Friend" adds to the dark and macabre nature of this record.
Although not as revolutionary or plainly brilliant as 'Funcrusher Plus', the consistency of this album is mind-blowing; as soon as you think you've heard the best track on the album, the next one just blows you away even more. This is a proper Company Flow record, not a middling project or whatever; it's too good for that.

One thing needs to be made clear about this CD from the start - IT HAS NO LYRICS. It is strictly a breaks and instrumentals album. If you are looking for the dexterous freeverse skills you expect from Co. Flow, buy Funcrusher Plus, or pick up something by Kool Keith (He did invent freeverse after all). OK, now that's cleared up this album is a wonder. The production team of Mr Len and El-P behind Co. Flow have excelled themselves on this album, and have earned themselves a mention under the title of deranged genius alongside Kool Keith and Automator. The beats on display are very off-key, as they were on Co. Flow's debut, but more-so! The sound is dark to match the theme, in that the whole sound matches the presentation of the album - that is like it was scrawled onto disk by a maniacal, silenced abused child with a rusty nail. You get the impression at points that if you scratched the CD a few times with a stanley knife, and then played it, it would scarce affect the overall sound - THIS IS NO BAD THING! Outstanding tracks include the bizarre "Worker ant uprise" whose odd tapping high pitched rhythm and oddly timed sampling brings order to chaos and then thinks better of it. "Indelible hybrid" is very short, but Co. Flow fans of old will recognise the tunes that are taken and mutated into this track. Overall, this album is a must for the fan of bizarre alternative hip-hop beats, it won't appeal to everyone but if you liked the odd beats of Funcrusher Plus, get this. If you're a newcomer, listen first because it's one of those love/hate things.

CO-FLOW: Fine Beat Craftsmanship from El-P & Len. 23 Mar 2000
By yampazooie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The use of spacey samples and strange verbal exerpts keeps this release on the underground side, but there's some catchy ish goin' on after you listen a few times. Check out my favorite track, "World of Garbage", and you'll see how that popping-cork sound at the beginning makes you want to freestyle right then and there. Perfect for writing verses, or just as chillin' music to help one's creativity. NO LYRICS HERE, JUST BEATS. If you're expecting another "Funcrusher Plus" with this one, don't bother. If you're open-minded enough to skip the newest DMX single in favor of true expressive hip hop, look no further. Peace.

Soundtrack for dark dreams 30 Dec 2003
By Todd Boostrom - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
These murky, rumbling beats definitely stand on their own. If you're looking for a sequel to Funcrusher Plus, you're going to be disappointed, but if you approach "Little Johnny From The Hospital" as a gritty ambient Brian Eno-meets-Isaac Hayes Blaxploitation "Three Tough Guys"-"Truck Turner"-era soundtracks, then you've got a great trippy experience ahead of you.

A Piece of Production History 11 Sep 2002
By J. B. Ware - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
The Funcrusher Plus LP exposed the world to a completely new breed of hip hop. With "Independent as ..." as their rallying cry, Company Flow opened the door for hundreds if not thousands of underground hip hop acts to cross over into a marginal amount of commercial success without sacrificing their basic values. The irony is that although Company Flow made room for many other underground acts, there really aren't any underground acts like Company Flow. They are a seemless amalgum of 1985 and 3000. And despite the undeniable importance of El-P's "is this guy for real?" cadence, and Big Juss's definite contribution to their work on Funcrusher, the true essence of Company Flow lies in the beats. On Funcrusher they were almost entirely composed by El-P, with a little help from DJ Mr. Len. Here Mr. Len and El-P share the spotlight to some degree, providing beats for a millenium far in the distance. This album provides the basis for Mr. Len's follow solo production masterpiece Pity the Fool. And while Len was clearly El-P's apprentice to some degree during this release, Len does provide some of the album's finest moments. In fact Len might have stolen the show if this album did not arguably contain El-P's best beat work. And Little Johnny certainly bridges the gap between the production from Funcrusher and the production of Cannibal Ox's Cold Vein and El-P's own Fantastic Damage. One drawback to this album that if you are familiar with all of El-P's other work, you will be begging for him to get on the mic at least once to assert his intergalactic dominance, instead he lets the beats do all of his talking for him. And if you are an avid Company Flow/Def Jux fan you will release the lack of sampling material he is really drawing from, as some of his beats are simply reworkings or alternate versions of ones you've probably heard before. However, considering that he himself admits that he only has about 100 albums he samples from, it is amazing that he can come up with such consistent brilliance.
