One of the finest all-MCR affairs to emerge out of the perpetual drizzle in the past few years, much-loved DJ / Producer Tom Boogizm (Shotta Tapes) sees his aptly titled, out of print, cult-classic debut LP Posh People Make Me Ill made available once again through Salford's (now Latvia based) long-running Ono tapes imprint.  Spat out from a pretty rudimentary bedroom set-up, Tom employs his frighteningly broad yet low-key (how else?) knowledge of free / contemporary jazz, post-punk, noise, industrial and pretty much anything else he’s been able to get his hands on and melts it down into a sample-rich tapestry that's laced with the punk / DIY attitude of drumming in punk bands in the backrooms of Wigan pubs.  It's a collection of tracks that couldn't have come from anyone else, each piece pieced together impulsively with gut instinct over than meticulous pruning and overproduction.  It’s rooted in years of knowledge and digging though, repurposed as raw, multi-referencing and totally out-front MPC jams, moving through sparse, golden-era UK techno referencing 'Answer Is The Ask, beat-down Dilla styled 'Numb To It' or more melancholic nagging piano hits on 'ECM'.  Elsewhere, '8Taa!' recalls the scruffier edges of Muslimgauze's output (Vampire Of Tehran), countered the red-eyed death waltz of 'Punishing' and fluttering ADHD drums of 'Platt Bridge Hit Squad'.  There’s been no attempt to rewrite the rule-book here or even advance it, yet you'd be hard pushed to find an album as entirely uncontrived and authentic as this these days.  A stone-cold Manchester classic!  Individually hand-made recycled / screen-printed sleeves by artist Michael Holland / layout by photographer Robert Parkinson.  * Shops please get in touch for wholesale *  (Mint / New)
