Mr B's Sgt. Pepper's
, 19 Feb 2012
In an era when hip hop has regressed to a group of semi-literate thugs throwing around words like "bitch" and "ho" and referring to each other as, well I doubt Amazon would let me type it but it's an anagram of "ginger", it's refreshing to hear some high quality rhyming accompanied by the beguiling tones of the banjolele. Given the number of cover versions this could be said to be Mr. B's fin de seicle album as a trawls the 1980's for inspiration from KISS, the Shamen and of course The Rock Steady Crew whilst simultaneously bemoaning the usurping of tweed by Kappa tracksuits and the Hilman Imp by the Citroen Saxo. His usual obsessions are apparent on "A Very Modern Breakup" and "Hermitage Shanks" so existing fans can rest easy that he hasn't sold out a la Example. Excellent follow up to "Flattery Not Included" so sherry all round!! (Can't understand why he is portayed as Napoleon on the cover artwork though; surely the Duke of Wellington would have been more appropriate?)
