Took this one down to NME Radio a while back. Must remember in future to listen to the damn lyrics first. With Freeway rapping about “bitches in the bathroom when he’s taking a shit and taking a piss” within the first ten seconds it was blatantly going to give Ofcom a hernia from round the corner.
Well fuck em. You can hear it this way. This is the bonus track on MSTRKRFT’s astonishing new album ‘Fist Of God’, and appears without gutter-raps as the second track too. If you’ve heard the soulful piano ditty with John Legend ‘Heartbreaker’ on the radio recently forget it – the rest of the LP is classic synth-slap-to-the-face MSTRKRFT. Riff-heavy punk dance with the vocoders thanfully banished to 2006. Collaborations from E-40, Ghostface, and N.O.R.E. fill the void, and on the whole work pretty well.
They’re playing Ministry on May 25. Go see.
