The Streets

Everything Is Borrowed

The Streets Carling Weekend Festival 2006
“I want to speak every cliché”, Britain’s anointed lad laureate admits on this introspective sermon. OK, uplifting soul-hop is hardly new Streets territory and the message – making the most of life and that – is pretty universal, but Skinner’s words are as creative and vital as ever. That said, if Mike continues on this path of self-discovery, surely his next (and supposedly final) album will be called ‘Original Pilates Material’. Another line, Mike?
