Product Description

Product Description

In the Eighties, America shouted "It's time to get ill!" and the world followed suit. Everybody got ill. the age of Hip-Hop was born. L'age of d'ip-op as the french called it. British B-boys got especially ill, because in Britain, nobody could rap. Properly, anyway. The UK had a permenent cold, in fact, until some wise ole Ninjas discovered you could drop the lyrics, and redress the attitude within the music....this method of hip-hoperaration developed through the mid-nineties, until the British war-cry developed it's own voice, one without any traces of an American accent.

July 1995, London

Ninja Tune present the debut album from West London's finest, The Herbaliser - "Remedies". It's time to get Well, y'all.

United Funkingdom at it's most firing, The Herbaliser will shake your butt like - uh - nothing from Twickenham ever has. A hybrid of seriously rumping retro jazz grooves and fugged-up turntable tricknology effortlessly sprayed onto a solid steel wall of hiphop, the Herbaliser dare to go where most modern artists refuse to tread; in between the groove that separates those who deal in DAT's from those who Do It Live, courtesy of a live horn section and sum tumpin dubble bass.

This long player is a pleasure-chest of jazzy gems; from the back-room ho-down feel of "Scratchy Noise", to the cool, laid back and funky "Styles"; "Bust a Nut" is what happens when a wildstyle welder fuses P-funk with the Gap band, while "Up 4 the Get Downs" is nothin but pumpin' - deep, dark, raw and DIIRRTTTTY. "Wrong Places" heralds the return of the lyric - MC Unknown lyrically parps and slurps like the muted trumpet that lays the break. The gaps are plugged by short stabs and fusion fills, completing a formula designed to treat any disease caused by the curse of drip-hop, easy-core, blandbag and the gorgons of trance. With more kick than a nightMare on steroids, "Remedies" represent the perfeck Cure for a fugged-up generation.

5.0 out of 5 stars Flawless! 9 Sep 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album is so good and probably Herbaliser's finest, it's mainly down-tempo hip-hop and trip-hop beats, some traks jazzy, some funky and some brooding breakbeat but it all comes together so well. If you like Herbaliser, hip-hop, trip-hop or breakbeat, BUY THIS!

4.0 out of 5 stars major grooves 4 Oct 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The Herbaliser's oft-overlooked first album is more a compendium of a bunch of cool grooves, sounds, and beats than a cohesive album--so it may not be as quite up to par as, say, Very Mercenary. So? It's still killer, funky stuff--and, at times, it's better than anything that came after it. Me like.

4.0 out of 5 stars Top quality early effort 12 May 2006
By J. Zbar - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
You know, there are times when people become a little gushy over the early works of the artists that they have fallen in love with. I might have been guilty of that a few times in my life. I proclaimed loudly and frequently to anyone that will listen: "I discovered these guys waaaaayyyy before you were listening to them", back when they weren't chock full of guest artists and stuff.

I mean, this is a great album by anyone's standards, but it sounds pretty raw by comparison with the Herbaliser's later works. Not your standard hip hop, with the Ninja Tunes influence far more apparent in this album. A bit clever, in an undergraduate sort of way.

Still, great music and a must for lovers of UK hip hop history.
