Album review

Various Artists - The Wild Bunch

The Wild Bunch are sometimes claimed to be trip hop's source, due to influential sets at Bristol's legendary dive/club The Dug Out, mixing reggae, hip hop, disco and funk, and members' subsequent careers—Nellee Hooper with Soul II Soul, others with Massive Attack. But the late-night, risky mixing of races and records at The Dug Out can't be revived by archive tape of its crowd, and this is mostly mediocre old-school hip hop, with only 1987 Wild Bunch single "The Look" (in fact by just Milo and Hooper) suggesting future greatness.
