Stinkzip 1 – El Malodoroso

elmalodoroso-500x500

There’s not a great deal that needs to be said about this mix, so for once I won’t. Flung down in January 2010 this is a bunch of nu cumbia and latino digital sounds predominantly pulled from soundcloud. That’s kind of ironic because the money grubbing ass-hats at soundcloud pulled this mix down because one of the tracks ended up on a comp…schmert. Well mixcloud has it now, and there’s plenty more to explore out there from these artists so please do.

Stinkbombs 303 – Shaolin Fisticuffs

stinkbombs 303 sq

Kin ‘ell – having a listen now and there’s some right unmitigated niceness on this’un. From 2004 and 100% vinyl snaffled up on a trip back to the auld country – all London too by the looks. The Bathgate instro I checked in a shop, didn’t rate the vocal, loved the instrumental and bought it expressly to lead off the next mix – it does the job. From here  is a romp round the reggaematical shack with Rodders offsider and soundsystem veteran Ricky Ranking and evergreens Mz Stephens (and yeah that was well old by then but I slept on it initially while it was getting hammered by all & sundry) and Lukie D. Couple of cuts from the Paragons re-form record Return which flies in the face of the current run (and by run I mean runs) of mortgage hungry, reconstituted acts – flogging heritage when it should be hermitage for them. It’s a great record and I was chuffed to find a repress in Sound Of The Universe, the cut that comes later has well reprehensible lyrics but they are so sweetly delivered – well it’s a crucial confusion. More vintage viberosity from my favourite Knowledge song, a guaranteed party starter in a gospel gone style from George & Jackie, before we go all retro-present-futuristic-schtick with the classic 007 rhythm re-licked.

The S.N.F. is the Stiff Nacked Fools and apparently is a bit of a rarity. I didn’t know about that when I found it in the 7″s bin at the glorious old Rough Trade out West, but it’s got the perfect mix of old school respect with new school technique that bands hear should be taking some serious notes from. Couple more favourites from Willie ‘Armagideon Time’ Williams and that slightly sketchy Paragons cut and with a bit of bridge building from the Rt Hon JSt*r it’s into some slengtenging dancehall belters including one of Sizzla’s best of the new millennium and a scorchulator on the Indian tip from YT. I’ve always felt that Cornershop’s Topknot done over by the Sheffield steel of Caveman, was overlooked and listening back – it’s a cracking track and one of M.I.A.’s finest and up there with Cornershop’s numerous highlights. Penultimately – Lady Sov, before it all went horribly horribly wrong. Got the last copy of this from S.O.T.U. and it was getting rinsed hardout from the moment it made it back to Harrow Road, let alone NZ. Finally Tego & The Game, what’s not to love – huuuuuuuuge tune.

Stinkbombs 606 – King Pong

stinkbombs606final

Well about a week later than first intended but that’s the seasonal …er season for you. I wouldn’t have put money on me getting anything posted today after the unmitigated mightyness of the Lion Rockers HiFi session at 420 last night (and what a joy it was to get a chance to select on that system… huge!) but most of the work was done yesterday so here goes…
From 2008, and well cosmopolitan, this sizzling simian stinkfest commences with Onra’s unofficial Vietnamese national flanthem before jetting off to Argentina for a spot of the modern cumbia hooha and hootenanny. Up after that are a couple of under appreciated and delightfully unclassifiable gems from graphic designer Bruce Lenkei and Parisian fodgather Uncle O repping for Cosmo Vitelli’s ever awesome I’m A Cliche label. Next up is a slew of weirdbeards, psych stragglers and just the sort of miscreants we like to find lounging in the greenest green room at Stinkbombs Central. Richard Norris shows up twice with the motoric majesty of ‘Zeitghost’ and one of many highlights from his Beyond The Wizards Sleeve project with Errol Alkan ‘Ready To Fly’. As might be hoped there’s a semi-psychotic remix from the auld master J Saul Kane in his Depth Charge robes, alongside yet more under appreciated and apparently quiet rare jewelry from MRR/ADM . From one of the finest double remix packs you could ever wish to find local yokel Shocking Pinks ‘Cutout’ gets the frankly phenomenal Expanding Head Band Tussley treatment before a spot of sampladelic Pilooski and the predictable poifection of Harvey dishing it out to El LCDs. On the home lap Quiet Village get up to their periodic perky pilfering, there’s a slovenly Belgian oddity, both sides of the best track Erykah Badu will probably ever do, Darkstar’s high tide mark so far, and finally a completely and utterly brilliant Julian Cope cover from another under-rated artiste The Oscillation. Phew……….
