Leisure Recordings LEICD001: 10th July 2006
This is a fifty-five track, hour long CD that chops together any songs that feature more than a hint of ‘Sex’, ‘Drugs’ or ‘Rock ‘n’ Roll’. Some of the songs are so filthy and offensive it’s a miracle they we’re ever released in the first place. Like some kind of twisted symphony it comes in two movements. Tracks 1-27 concern the ‘Sex’ and tracks 28-55 concern the ‘Drugs’.
It mixes filthy mouthed comedians like Lenny Bruce, Bill Hicks and Richard Pryor, Hip-Hop stars like Beastie Boys, Jay Z and De La Soul, Rockers like Jimi Hendrix, Primal Scream and Iggy Pop, Electronica like Coldcut, Peaches and The Prodigy, Reggae artists like Peter Tosh, Max Romeo and Jackie Brown and many others too numerous to mention… and of course Ian Dury.
The fact that it’s split in to so many tracks is annoying. Some are only seconds long and of course when you listen to them on your mp3 player you get loads of gaps. So it’s worth dusting off that old CD player thing and listening to it on that.
You can buy this CD from Piccadilly Records for only £6.99.
