Dirtbombs, the - ode to a black man - TERMINAL BOREDOM | Marginal Music


The album is mostly covers of Soul and Funk songs. The band leader Mick Collins stated that this album was his tribute to the black music he grew up with. The only song that is not a cover is "Your Love Belongs Under a Rock".

Nick Wisdom and AstroLogical’s boom-bap boogie project has already been championed hard by the likes of Kaytranada, Nightmares On Wax and Soulection. Reaching album maturity, the Canadian duo paint their broadest picture on Big Luxury, an album that ranges from silky mid-90s west coast hip-hop (“Explosives”) to lavish, jazz-maxed Amp Fiddler style future-soul (“Palmreader”) via wonked-out broken beat bass (“Luv Ya”). Living up to its name in every way, Potatohead People are effectively celebrating everything that’s great about dancefloor music in the last 30 years right here. As a result it will sound great for another 30 years to come.

In 2003 the band released their third LP, Dangerous Magical Noise . This album was originally going to be done in the style of bubblegum pop , [4] but Collins ultimately chose to stick with a radio-friendly pop rock style, described by the band as being " the car-commercial record". [5] The album featured a re-recorded version of their contribution to the Sympathetic Sounds compilation, "I'm Through With White Girls" written and sung by Jim Diamond . The single "Motor City Baby" was featured on Little Steven's Underground Garage as the "Coolest Song in the World".
