You bumped the disgusting banger of a lead single I Got Game in your battered old motor, slapping about a poor civilian to its no-holds-barred lyricism, but finally, after a staggering wait the brand new album from Stig Of The Dump is here. And if you are expecting an album of insane wordplay, unparalleled delivery and ferocious production you will not be disappointed in the slightest.
Right from the Doug Stanhope sampled opener the tone of the album is set, a brutally honest collection of songs from a truly original lyricist. Aptly named, Mood Swings takes you on a journey, a journey encompassing hilarity, tragedy, angst, bravado and above all else a message of uncompromising individualism.
From the classic dusty breaks of Back to the celebrity lambasting Planet Hollywood or the tongue in cheek strip club banger Give It Up, Stig takes not-giving-a-fuck to a level entirely unfathomed before. However, far from just an album full of boozy attitude, time is taken out between his sardonic observations to show true diversity. Be it the introspective and inspirational Whats Up (25/8), the anthemic anger driven Hater and its rock addled live version Hardcore Hater, the angst fuelled Wind The Clock or the intricately weaved imagery of Big City Blues. The album is consistently fervent, and undeniably passionate throughout.
Guest production from one of the countrys biggest talents Jehst on Whos That Muddy Funkster is the icing on the cake, with cuts from DJ Manipulate, this is a banger of epic proportions and a collabo dreamt up in the mind of homegrown fans everywhere.
Also included on the LP is the lead single from the album, I Got Game – bringing a computer-game sampling, screw face inducing beast of an entity depicting exactly what the fans demand from the recently crowned, undefeated, 2 X World & UK E.O.W Champion.
If all of the above isnt enough, the massive previously released singles Intoxicated and Braindead featuring R.A the Rugged Man are also included on this incredible project.
The name alone holds weight enough for this to be in stereos, iPods and club systems nationwide, but both lyrically and musically, this album stands strong.
Release Date: 11th October 2010
