Gonzales  : OP Original Prankster

You've got to love this four-song EP, if only for the best send-up of the hip-hop sleeve thank you we've ever read: "This record was made possible by the apathy and spinelessness of many individuals, too numerous to name here. For a complete list of these weak and terrified motherf--ers, send an SAE to Kitty Yo."







The record? Oh, it's another fine slice of fun with beats and samples that's sort of trip-hoppy, sort of DJ Shadowy (in piled-on effect if not in production technique, trainspotters) and sweet-natured as a well-fed Labrador. 'Past Your Bedtime' whispers, "it's four in the morning", while warm breaks and tinkles count out the minutes til dawn. The self-deprecating 'The Worst MC', meanwhile, borrows a harp riff from spacey jazz woman Alice Coltrane. And there's even more lush, mashed-up doodles on the B. Quality.
