No this ain’t the EMF from Epsom, this is the duo from West Norwood/ Oval in South London that disappointedly only ever released one classic 12″.
The interview is very brief and uneventful [and their cut Rough Potential is regrettably paused out], so this tape is all about the 1989 classics from Rockwell Noel & The Poet, Shante and Cool C and some decent sounding crews I didnt pay much attention to at the time; Wild Boyz/ WISE Guyz. There’s a couple of reminders of why 45 King productions remain some of the finest sounding Rap to this day too.
Tim refers to Ice T as ‘the waste coast Brother‘. The ROYAL FAIL SUPREME BIG DAWG does it again !
