The Bug - London Zoo (Ninja Tune)


Web: http://www.myspace.com/thebuguk
Kevin ‘The Bug’ Martin brings us his nasty brand of grimey dancehall to Ninja, aided and abetted by a crew of MCs. Tales of desperation, violence and frustration rule the roost, with powerful lyrical displays backed by heavy instrumental arrangements. High points include the Ricky Ranking assisted Murder Me, the moody Freak Freak and the emphatic Warrior Queen touched Poison Dart. This is not an album that is easy to listen to, but it is worth the effort.
