The Streets

Original Pirate Material

£28.99

Long out of print, The Streets debut 'Original Pirate Material' and huge follow up 'A Grand Don't Come For Free' both receive fresh pressings.

The two albums helped to make the UK hip-hop/garage scene a force to be reckoned with on a global scale, and established Mike Skinner as a lyricist with a gift for delivering insightful observations about everyday life.

Originally released in 2002, ‘Original Pirate Material’ remains one of the most influential albums of its generation, and bridged the gap between UK garage and grime. Featuring the breakthrough hit ‘Has It Come To This’ and era-defining anthems such as ‘Weak Become Heroes’ and ‘Let’s Push Things Forward.’
