Album review: ESG - Dance To The Beat Of ESG (Fire) ESG Tickets

Influential and bad-ass - this 'Best Of' blows the contemporaries out the water

Album review: ESG - Dance To The Beat Of ESG (Fire)

9 / 10 Three greatest hits compilations in a decade might seem excessive, but ESG are justifiably about thrice as relevant as any of the other bands trotting out best ofs these days, so we’re not about to quibble. For the uninitiated, ESG were like the proto girl hip-hop gang in the late ’70s – made up of the myriad (and badass) Scroggins sisters – responsible for the attitude that rips through MIA’s offerings, for bringing hip-hop funk to uptight post-punk, and giving samples to bands as disparate as TLC and Liars. Now they’re broke and drive buses for a living. Get this incredible, comprehensive compilation to give something back to a band who gave so much.
