The Black Prophets - Fax On Wax

Before their other pretty decent effort was released on the Kold Sweat label in '92 there was this. Due to some legal wranglings it was released on a stamped promo 12" only and also, I would guess, in limited quantities to boot. Personally I don't really like 'Fax On Wax' so I sold mine a few years back now but the 'Untitled' track on the flip is much better. According to discogs they put out another cut  earlier than these two on a compilation EP but this and 'Chapter One' were the only two records I ever owned.

F9's - U.B. Nice

These were an acquired taste I think. A lot of his rhymes didn't, well, rhyme and the music wasn't what you might consider britcore but all that said I think they were pretty decent and apart from an album this the only record they ever made. Shame they had such a short lived but credible career.

SL Troopers - Knowledge ...I'm Gonna Get Me Some

I went shopping for records last weekend and came home with nothing. I know according to recent statistics that vinyl is on the up and a lot of people are 'getting back in to it' but it's just not the same any more. I used to go up town at least twice a week and hardly ever came back empty handed, felt disappointed if I did. I remember the days when I used to come back with boss tunes like this..
