Product description

Cornershop - When I Was Born For The 7Th Time - Cd

Amazon.co.uk

Tjinder Singh's jewel-box armoury of mellow grooves, left-field samples, harmonium melodies and flute riffs swept all before it in 1997: the sweet, dizzy "Sleep On The Left Side" was the automatic soundtrack for TV features on New Asian Cool; and you couldn't go anywhere without hearing Fatboy Slim's Number One, knees-up remix of "Brimful of Asha". Thankfully, due to its old-school hip-hop sensibilities, When I Was Born doesn't sound tied and dated to its big year; the album oscillates between mantra and funk ("We're In Yr Corner", "Good Shit") and small, penny-chew songs played on dodgy, cheap keyboards ("Funky Days Are Back Again", "It's Good To Be On The Road Back Home Again".) Alas, Singh loathed his brief time in the spotlight, and retreated to his low-profile side-project Clinton--an eighth rebirth that never quite worked. --Caitlan Moran

Okay, I put my hands up. I, wisper it, only bought this album because of ( You know whats coming next) "Brimfull of asha" Yes i know that was a bit silly. That if i had a clue about Cornershop i would know that Norman Cooks Fatboy efforts are not a clear guide to the talent of cornershop, I know that The band are alot more than just Three minute pop acts.
I know that now. I know that because this album proves that point over and over again. This album is a gem, a real mood piece.I can listen to it over, and over. Tracks such as "Sleep on the left side" and "good shit" expertly contrast pop with funk, and cornershop show themselves to be a bit handy with both. Ginsberg gives the band a poetic weight with "When the light appears boy" And the highlights have to include a fine rendition of the Beatles' "Norweigian Wood" and the great "We're in yr corner" Just don't try , like me and my friends have done, to sing along!!
If you are looking for something a bit more old Skool than present pop, and you want to open up your listening experience, Buy this album.I can't say much more. But brimfull of asha is still a class tune, don't ya think.....

This album proves that Cornershop have the rare ability lacking in most bands, to vary their sound and style successfully. From the well known "Brimfull of Asha", brilliantly mellow "Sleep on the left side" to a stunning cover of "Norwegian Wood", this album will leave you feeling relaxed and chilled. "Good to be on the road back home" sticks in the brain and will loop through your head when walking down the street. If you liked this alum, get their next one, "Handcream for a generation".

Time really does nothing for this album except convince me even more that it is one the best albums of the last few years.
For a start it's a wonderfully bizarre mix of styles, with a real "bung in the kitchen sink 'n all" kind of approach. In many cases this kind of approach doesn't really work, but on this record it most certainly does - incredibly well! I'd also describe it as refreshingly electic, incredibly mellow, funky as hell and often very, very funny. It's worth buying just for the superb bass line that runs through "Candyman" (complete with those excellent handclaps!) and the wonderful cover of "Norwegian Wood" alone.
Whilst I'm sure the lads still consider Norman Cook's remix of "Brimful of Asha" to be a curse (let's face it, the original here is far superior) it did have the advantage of bringing Tjinder and Ben to a wider audience, and frankly the more people that fall in love with this album the better!
So, I'm going to pop it on the stereo again now and keep my fingers crossed for "Handcream For A Generation" (what a great title!).

Like The Beta Band's 3 EP's, early Floyd, or Sgt Pepper, this album creates its own laid back, stoned world of wonder that makes use of a variety of musical styles, but always feels like a coherent whole. Skewed, relaxed takes on hip-hop and country mix with the easy rock bounce of Sleep on the Left Side and Brimful Of Asha. Easy to play straight through, this is ambitious music with a freindly, positive outlook. Blissful.
It should be pointed out that FatBoy Slim's remix of Brimful of Asha isn't here, and shouldn't be, as it is the exact opposite of Cornershop's desired relaxed mood. In fact, with its speeded up helium vocals, and clunkingly obvious snare rolls, the remix was the equivalent of The Wrong Trousers: a mad, stomping robotic pair of legs, forcing the human inside to march around to it's bidding.

I find Cornershop to be a strange group. They recorded some excellent tracks notably, of course, "Brim Full of Asha" and then others that are totally incomprehensible. My view of the group is one of ambivalence.
