[Free EP] GANGRENE - "Odditorium"

Followers of The Lost Tapes know that I hold Alchemist's and Oh No's duo Gangrene as one of the most interesting things to happen in hip-hop the last couple of years. All their releases have been straight fire and can be found in my vinyl crates, from their debut "Gutter Water", to the EP compilation with Roc Marciano known as "Greneberg" and most recently the fantastic "Vodka & Ayahuasca" (speaking of the latter, make sure to not miss out on the iTunes ony exclusive "Dream Nap"). A while back it was announced that the duo was already preparing new material, a four track EP titled "Odditorium" which will be released on picture disc vinyl this Tuesday.

Great news is that already now we can download the entire project for free in 320 kbps exclusively through Red Mull USA's website. And not very unexpected it's another banger to add to the already extremely potent Gangrene catalouge so make sure you don't miss out on this because it's a big possibility that this is a limited time offer only. TURN IT UP!!!!

  1. I wonder how many people know that the main song & structure of the track "Fly Brothers" is by early 1970's Bristol (UK) freak band MAGIC MUSCLE. The original track appears on the debut vinyl-only LP "The Pipe The Roar & The Grid" (side 1 track 1) by MAGIC MUSCLE as a two part number titled "I Can Travel Anywhere/ Fly Brothers" but I reckon GANGRENE discovered it on an old white label acetate (that was still out there somewhere) and used it to rap over. I don't know if this EP would become any more collectable if it boasted "FEATURING MAGIC MUSCLE" but it is worth knowing in terms of ancient underground music lore. The band has included Simon House (ex David Bowie/Hawkwind/ etc etc.), Adrian Shaw (Bevis Frond/ex Hawkwind/etc.), Twink (Pink Fairies/Pretty Things/Tomorrow/etc etc.) Nick Saloman (The Bevis Frond), Huw Gower (The Records, etc.), Keith Christmas; Oh, and Rustic Rod Goodway who wrote the song and plays guitar & sings throughout. Originally Recorded 1970.
