Notes

Personnel: Kevin Mark Trail (vocals).
Audio Mixer: Mike Skinner .
Arranger: Mike Skinner .
The Streets' ORIGINAL PIRATE MATERIAL was one of the first UK hip-hop albums the average American listener was likely to hear (at least since Neneh Cherry's RAW LIKE SUSHI over a decade before). It also represented the first Stateside crossover of the uniquely British mixture of ultra-spare hip-hop beats, chilly electronics, and sonic minimalism labeled "grime." Birmingham-born Mike Skinner, the Streets' mastermind, doesn't have much in the way of flow in comparison to the best American rappers, but he's part of a long tradition of plain-speaking street-level geezers in British music, the most obvious inspiration being punk godfather Ian Dury. (Skinner even updates Dury's catchphrase into the line "Sex and drugs and on the dole" on the powerful mission statement "Has It Come To This?") Skinner's everybloke delivery adds immediacy to the small victories and everyday frustrations sketched in his lyrics, and a mordant sense of humor enlivens otherwise deadly serious tunes like "The Irony Of It All," a pro-legalization song that sets the beery machismo of a conservative alcoholic against the pacifist slackerdom of a liberal marijuana user.
