Various Artists Bong-Ra vs. Sickboy: Shotgun Wedding 5
- Words: Matt Earp
- Label: Violent Turd
2007 is the new 1991. Bong-Ra and Sickboy revisit the roots of UK 'ardcore on the fifth installment of Kid 606's impeccable Shotgun Wedding series, mashing up every brilliant tune from the day. Bong-Ra stays pretty faithful-no Shitmat-esque noodling, just the best breakdowns and buildups of 45-plus great tunes chopped just the way you want 'em. Sickboy raves up a wider (and slightly cheesier) selection butting Rednex vs. Vengaboys vs. Sean Paul vs. Busta vs. what-have-you. A glorious trip down memory lane that's still pretty ass-kicking-20% ironic, 80% 'ardcore; you know the score.
