Product Notes

Digitally re-mastered and expanded 20th Anniversary edition of the UK Rap trio's 1990 release containing three bonus tracks. Ruthless Rap Assassins broke the mould. For a brief moment in 1990 they shifted the nucleus of UK Rap away from the capital to their native Manchester, offering a thinking man's alternative to the indie-dance of Happy Mondays and Stone Roses. Killer Album reflected the black British experience in a unique, often poignant way. All the way live from the notorious North Hulme estate, the trio of Anderson, Carson and a pre-Black Grape Kermit eschewed the phony Brooklyn accents of many London contemporaries for a hard-bitten, sometimes bitter but always razor sharp trawl through the harsh realities of low-budget living - packed with depth, humor and social comment. Using a 'sampledelic' approach incorporating elements of rock, reggae, pop and jazz - segued by producer Greg Wilson - their open embrace of diversity has haunted the grooves of countless acts to flow in their wake. Cherry Pop. 2010.
