Freq Nasty Bring Me The Head Of Freq Nasty
- Words: Stacy Meyn
- Label: Skint
Rick James may have nosed his last, but his ego-splattered funk lurks amid the absolutely bad-ass beats of Freq Nasty's latest. The album flounders at the outset, with awkward vocals and off-kilter beats, but it's in the pike midway with hairy analog melodies and stellar guest performances by roots reggae maestro Junior Delgado, plus Roots Manuva and Yolanda. Culture pundits might dub it bashment, but the Freqster does whatever the fuck he wants-and Bring Me The Head is the sound of this native New Zealander ditching the homeland to hang with the Brixton Orcs.
