• cornershop Judy Sucks a Lemon for Breakfast (double LP, £15.95)

    label: Ample Play

    This is another longplayer of inspiration and choice. Oshira Matgosi of the Japanese x–reflex magazine said, “It’s the best album this decade since the last album this decade,” and that’s not a bad way to start off the century. On that note Rob Da Bank describes it as “encompassing the best of 40 years into one album”, “Solid gold sounds solid gold value, the best 30 years of your record collection,” asserts Nusrat Durrani of MTV America. They’re back again, and Cornershop have lost none of what the first 11 call “form”. Bringing up their kids may have renewed their interest in simple upbeat music and algebra but they could have waited another 7 years and the album would still be fresh. In short this is an armoury of sure-fire songs which “confirms them as the most vital and inventive force at work in British pop” (The Daily Telegraph). Not many can say they have fans transgressing across the likes of Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt, Neely Furtado, Morrissey, George Clooney, Paramijt Pummi & Don Letts and yet still remain heavily liked by kids between the ages of two to ninety two, & a special mention to the North London reggae fraternity.
