It’s 10 years since The Streets’ debut album came out and to celebrate, Archy Marshall has given ‘Weak Become Heroes’ a woozy remix, complete with a barely audible rap of his own. It’s OK, but has this track really aged that well? The...

Live Review: The Streets

Live Review: The Streets

For a moment there, back in 2002, The Streets were the future. A first-listen-classic to many, ‘Original Pirate Material’ was not so much a gateway as a floodgate; a fertile, formative beast of a record of almost Darwinian significance....

The Streets: When You Wasn’t Famous

The first two times I listened to this I was convinced that it was the most rubbishest single of all time, a cheese-fuelled, creatively bankrupt parody of Eminem’s dreadful ‘Without Me’. Then, on the third listen, rather like an Alsatian...
