‘Original Pirate Material’ by THE STREETS
Released 25 March 1992 – 15 years ago

What the press said…

NME
“What we’re dealing with here is an album that owes a lot to garage, but also quite a lot to
the all-night garage, too. By turns dark, funny and heartbreaking, the songs on ‘Original Pirate Material’ are snapshots of ordinary life as a young midlands resident, set to innovative two-step production: tales of love, going out, being skint and getting drunk.”

4/5

ALL MUSIC
“Skinner’s debut is an excellent listen, much better than the heavy-handed hype would make you think. Unlike most garage LPs, it’s certainly not a substitute for a night out. It’s more a statement on modern-day British youth, complete with all the references to Playstations, Indian takeaway, and copious amounts of cannabis you’d expect.”
10/10

PITCHFORK
“One-man MC/DJ package Mike Skinner has an obvious talent for forging damn sharp hip-pop hooks that supercede his inherent verbal handicap. Given the fact that it does, eventually, manage to overcome the horrific-sounding concept of British hip-hop, it seems pretty reasonable to give it a recommendation. Bloody good show, I say.”
8/10
