If you’ve ever been kicked roundly in the guts by an Egyptian man in a trench coat, uttering French obscenities from the 1930s, then you’ll love this band; if you’ve ever had to plead with the ghost of Yul Brinner to stop smoking crack in your doorway because the landlord’s coming, then you’ll love this band; if you know that to want to be Book, is not Book, then you’ll love this band...
Queens English – A 5-strong banana bunch of trouble and magnanimous winners of The Peoples Music Awards 2010 are remaking the world of Hip Hop in their own image. Banging at the gates of heavy entertainment, lyricists Sherlock (TroubleVision) and Leon Rhymes (Deptford A.R.M.Y / RAR!) bounce off the soulful vox pops of MC Source and the beatbox genius of Pikey Esq (UK Beatbox 2006 & 2010 Finalist), tied together by scruff-bag disc-jockey, Something Else
(TroubleVision). Drawing their influences from Saian Supa Crew, Non-Phixion, Eminem, Jay-Z and I.AM, Queens English fuse samples with raps, claps and funky hand slaps to consistently orgasmic conclusions.
