Roots Manuva, Taipanic, Skeme & Chris Smoove freestyle...

Yes yes, been trawling through my dusty tape collection again today. This recording is off an old Kiss FM, Max & Dave show from 1997. A killer 10 minute freestyle session with Roots Manuva, Taipanic (Blak Twang), Skeme & Chris Smoove, with Shortee Blitz on the pots and pans.

This was around the time Manuva & Twang were still rolling with Tuse and his Sound Of Money label, before either had dropped any albums, only a couple of 12"s, and Chris Smoove & Skeme hadn't had anything out.

It was a very interesting period for the UK scene, having started to pick up the pace again after a lull around 1994, lots of hunger and some decent artists and music had started to come out again.
I used to record Max & Dave every Wednesday night, they always repped the UK artists.
Enjoy this slice of history...

Meet Monty, the Suspect Packages pooch

If you're wondering why Suspect Packages hasn't been updated a lot recently, or i've not got back to you on your demo submission, email, phone call, text, album upload or pretty much anything really, this little one is the reason...

He's Monty, an 8 week old Cocker Spaniel, and since entering my family he's demanded A LOT of attention, day, and night. I'm lucky if i get 4 hours of broken sleep at the moment. His favourite things are eating (anything), and plant pots...

He's even taken a liking to suspect packages, which could be a good, or a bad thing, not sure yet...

So just so you're aware, if things don't get uploaded to the site when you'd expect, or i've not got back to you, i'm probally trying to get my trainers off him, or i'm clearing up some poop. Gotta love him tho huh?

P.S. He's a pedigree gun dog, so anyone steppin' to Suspect Packages with intent to harm or rob, and there will be armshouse!
