Another UK entry, this time from DJ (and one time Jurassic 5 bus driver) Format. Format likes a bit of old-school. This album takes it back. The artwork, grafitti-style, shows two ageing b-boys ready to make the corner their own. Just enough self-referential piss-taking from someone who added a Victoria Wood song to the end of one of his biggest tracks.
