|Saturday 11th April 1987
The arse had long since fallen out of the New Romantic scene, and everyone wore baseball caps at jaunty angles, and bedecked
themselves in VW badges ripped off old beetles. The Beastie Boys had shocked the nation and the light of their stardom began to fade.
Worsley and Afford were invited to become the kick-ass rhythm section for a trio of up-and-coming Southall based hip-hop artistes.
Desperate for a bandwagon to jump on to, they found the offer irresistable...
Three tracks were cut - 'Buy Two', 'Cold Cash' and 'It's Tuff!'. The original mix featured Worsley's trademark ZZ Top guitar,
and slammin' phatt basswork from the Aff. On reviewing the demo mix, Morgan Khan described their efforts as 'old-fashioned' and
'clichéd' and felt that the group were lacking 'substance' and 'songs'. He considered the rapping to be 'not particularly
good' and the overall product was 'shit'. His main problem though, was the fact that loads of hip-hop acts used 'heavy metal guitar'. Besides
which, in his opinion, the future of music was 'the fusion of Jazz, House and Rap'. As these three genres were way beyond
their technical capabilities Afford and Worsley's brief flirtation with hip-hop came to an end.
The original demo was painstakingly remixed. No bass or guitar was featured.
