Gilles Peterson Jesus christ he’s back with another box of lyrical treasures.
He was the first to represent club culture with the spoken word…. And after being bitten by so many lesser souls i’m encouraging you to check out his latest rantings…the evolvement continues..
Tony Minvielle

Tony Minvielle Mr Gallagher definitely comes correct with this eclectic collection of stripped bare and beautifully lyricised tunes punctuated by his trademark 'Made In Hackney' vocals. The mixture of cajun blues, spiritual dub and observational wordsmithing fully explains why this man is always in demand. Favorite track: BABYLONS ANGELS.

Track Name: KINGSLAND RAG
i don’t tell stories
i don’t tell tales
only checks i got are the prince of wales
where dancing here
in the land of kings

got a swarm of excuses
to keep me from work
the joint is jumping
but the chiken don’t jerk
kingsland roads new kings

youth roll deep
and prepared to board
sizer than sizeway
and mi chest is broad

parties illegal
but police are there
checking fire escapes
but on the whole don’t care
kingsland roads new kings

i’m a mini recession
in a financail crisis
i’d like to wear a smile
but i can’t get the sizes
illegal dogs with illegal teeth

had a grandmother
called the duchess of dalston
@ kerridge court
just off balls pond
kingsland roads all fire

youth roll deep
and prepared to board
sizer than sizeway
and mi chest is broad

parties illegal
but police are there
checking fire escapes
but on the whole don’t care
kingsland roads new kings
Track Name: BABYLONS ANGELS
sons of their farthers
son of the papers
daughters of the famous
daughters of favours

scars of the unsaid
headaches from hoping
red hands from pushing
cuts from the coping

seraphim and seramin
fumes from the engine
drink from the tap
river’s never ending

death from the choking
high from the vapours
butchers and bakers
and candlestick makers


sons of the bass bin
not much more here
i ain’t for the righteous
i’ll pay for the new fear

son of the flashman
you see i ain’t joking
born out of hard work
the fire needed stoking
profit from planning
and stealing and trying
son of the shires
those immigrant friends
sponsor it all
the plans never ending
ready for the fire
this love that were sending

shit from the sewer
water and rainbows
part own your own skin
tatoo all your wanting

sons of the fathers
sons of the papers
daughters will dance like
the takers and fakers
love it to take
love me to steal
put your foot on the road jack
and your back to the wheel

sons of the bass bin
not much more here
i ain’t for the righteous
i’m to much in fear

hold on to it all
in the circle you build
sons of the history
which got stolen and filled
daughter of dragon fire
down in the market
anger from street rage
know where to park it

ezekiel’s exile
and babylon’s angels
roads of excess
palaces of wisdom
snooker hall bar room
the kingdom of kings
corner of bradbury
getting ready to sing

son of the fishman
hannah his wife
cards were to fast
cost him a life

cash the night in
go take your token
put us back together friend
all fractured and broken

down to the city gates
rodinsky and munrow
hetty king and mari Lloyd
bills that chime to slow
