So. Neon Neon, then. Super Furry Gruff and some American guy called Boom Bip with an album of techno-pop called Stainless Style, featuring numerous guests (Spank Rock, Har Mar, some Welsh woman calling herself 'Cate Le Bon', etc).

Absolutely wonderful stuff, ranging from Kraftwerkian retro-futurism to authentic-sounding Miami booty bass and quasi-Neptunes electro-rap.

Standout track, for me, is "I Lust U", featuring the aforementioned Ms Le Bon, which will satisfy the cravings of anyone who can't wait for the new Ladytron album...

I know the bloke who owns the De Lorean featured extensively in the album art.

The woman's toenails give me the fear.

Wow, didn't realise it was anything to do with Gruff. I love that Sweat Shop track.

Yeah, Boom Bip is an old anticon, backpack hip hop sort but he's pretty good.

Really interesting album. Love the Sweatshop track.

"Sweat Shop" is like a pastiche of Kelis/50 Cent, but could also pass as a genuine krunktastic global hit record. I love that.

Krunktastic? Nice word, though have I missed something?!

There's a pretty good thread buried in the archives about crunk, if memory serves.

'crunktastic' would be a more legitimate spelling for a word which I admit I just made up. Bit of a K overload.

Crunk

I've been hunting for this album for months - or more accurately, it's been on a few P2P wishlists. Glad to see it's living up to expectations. Also glad to see that it's now all over SoulSeek like a rash.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that the album makes a lot more sense when you read the press release and find out that it's actually a concept album about the life of motor industry maverick and playboy John DeLorean himself. Kind of like Yoshimi Battles The Pink Robots but with flashy cars.

It is rather marvellous stuff.

I know it's not all his own stuff, but I love Gruff. (unintentional rhyme there, marvellous)

'stuff' doesn't rhyme with 'Gruff'

</pedantry>
