Various Artists The Bug vs. The Rootsman Razor X Productions Killing Sound
- Words: Matt Earp
- Label: Rephlex
This long-awaited CD compiles four previously released singles from The Bug and adds six new ones. The MCs are impeccable; some big names (Cutty Ranks, Daddy Freddy), some Bug favorites (He-Man, Warrior Queen), and some powerful and new all make appearances. It‘s the massive head-fuck of a record The Bug was hoping to make, drawing from his dancehall, industrial, techno, and dub roots, with waves of joyous distortion mashed up and filtered through gruff-throated politics. The whole thing is topped off with a second CD of versions that drops most vocals and piles on an extra layer of warp and clatter. Mind-melting.
