Consumer Guide Reviews:

Never Trust a Hippy [RealWorld, 2003]
mates ambient and beatwise so deep down they almost procreate ("No Dog Jazz," "Boogaloo") **

Further Notes:

Subjects for Further Research [1980s]: I enjoyed the African Head Charge album that came my way without ever seeking out another, mostly because everything else I heard from this mixmastering onetime Fall producer--by the Dub Syndicate, by Mark Stewart and Maffia, by Sugarhill permutations like Fats Comet and Tackhead--sounded better when I only heard about it. A possible exception is Tackhead's 1989 Friendly as a Hand Grenade, which may yet teach me to love the deconstructed groove--and to fully understand De La Soul.
