The Grotbags EP
The Grotbags EP Delivery Room burst out of your speakers in a heavily structured, yet fluid style from the dilapidated depths of Paisley, Scotland, in their debut release: The Grotbags EP. Breaking from the standard 16 bar approach, Epidural and MC-Sexion switch between one another wherever they see fit. Allowing no time for the listener to get settled, they keep the ears standing at attention as they 'deliver' a barrage of intricately woven, sinister bars, guaranteed to get anyone moving. Subject matter is exactly what is says on the tin; every detail of the rot and decay on humanity rolled into a personification of the title, that makes for a contrarily good-feeling collection of tracks, that leave you wondering if it's morally right to enjoy them? Apart from the opening, more upbeat instrumental, (produced by Crink), the rest of the self-produced soundscape, gets progressively filthier; perhaps a reminder that life isn't as glorious as your social media presence would suggest? Underground heavyweight, DJ Riseone, seamlessly ties the whole project together, with an obscure collection of scene-setting samples, each abruptly extruded into the next bass driven backing track, that could easily get pensioners popping viagra and removing their wife's false teeth. Grab yourself a copy for an insight into the energetic wave emerging from Scotland: Delivery Room - The Grotbags EP, available from the 14th February 2017 on OneLionRecords and Suspect Packages! The perfect Valentine's gift!

Where these guys came from, I have no idea. Do they make me question the validity of the
ground I walk on? Worryingly, yes. The more Strange U absorbed, the more of the planet you see.
It just isn’t yours.
The reptile is supplying the monstrous voice with music and nobody is doing anything about it.
How is the government going to help? Prime Minister-designate, Mr. Kill, has just snorted a fat
line of coke and is about detonate your local hospital. There’s something strange going on in your
brain and there’s nothing you can do to stop it. Dr. Zygote offers no choice. Let the madmen
operate on your eyeballs and banish all reality before you.
#LP4080 has made a crater on Earth, and the people swarm despite deadly levels of radiation.
Snap back to the planet you think you’re on and we might have a chance at explaining this thing.
Between the sonic zaps and lingering synths there's something resonating with our own world,
but your eye-sight keeps blurring before you can grasp what it is. You don’t know if you’re being
drugged or if it’s making things clearer than they ever were before. All you see is the
overwhelming glow of fore-frontal intrigue. You’re a captive to the eye-drilling wordplay and there
isn’t a soul in the galaxy that can save you.
It’s sci-fi dystopia personified at its most compelling and obscure. Daisy inserts the gold coin to
explore Mario’s nightmare and Mumm Ra finally explains love. Venomous. Empathy creeps slowly,
though nobody but King Kashmere speaks your language. You’ve got nothing to follow but the
over-arching voice of perverted reason. And just when things begin feeling tangible, your diner
booth evaporates and you continue bouncing along the walls of a holographic abyss.
Is that Fliptrix? Yep. Lee Scott? Seems familiar. Where’s Onoe Caponoe? Maybe next time. Every
door and neon exit sign with a little walking man on it is a trap. Have you finished, or is this only
the beginning? You want a ‘review’? Out of ten? 4080. What does that mean? Go enter the maze
yourself- I dare you.
