“ Artist: The Correspondents / Genre: Hip Hop / Label: Defrattle / Release Date: 2008 „
The Rogue EP is the debut work of hip hop/swing band The Correspondents. London based cads The Correspondents are far from your usual hip hop band, playing their own breed of hip hop and big band stuff with modern drum loops and unique Noel Coward style vocals and witty lyrics about a number of topics including some bizarre topics like twins (Rose and Jane) who do everything together until one day one of the girl falls in love with a man and refuses to share him. Lyrically they are up to very high standards, using a wide range of vocabulary and creating lots of excellent stories.
Other particular cool tracks include Rentaclown (a track that acts as an advert for a company renting a clown to cheer yourself up if you are sick of office work etc), The Rogue (a cheerful ditty about a well dressed rogue, I somehow get the feeling that this is somewhat a biographical track about rapper Mr. Bruce) and an excellent cover of the Jungle Book track.. "I wanna Be Like You"
