The Twin Tailed Lizard has been filtering a heady mix of musical influences into independent rap music and platform for spoken word ravings for a long, long time.
Veering from cutting commentary on the follies of culture, the music business and the state of the nation to glorious, openly retro party tracks and clever, catchy wordplay, and will continue to defy both the rigid conventionalism of UK hip hop, and the fanaticism of the guitar-and-a-haircut indie crowd -
”Twin Lizard spit in Lincoln accents about British subject matter and British politics, raging about the failings of British government…fiery, tight and maturely observed hip-hop that manages to suck you up into the production without losing sight of the message, or lapsing into pure linguistic trickery. This is some of the most impressive UK hip-hop I've heard in a while,” – Shallow Rave. (Silent Britain EP 2009)
"Original and off the wall tracks," - Dr Das, Asian Dub Foundation. (Despite EP 2008)
The forthcoming EP, scheduled for release in January 2012, leans heavily on MC B-Brave's lighter and catchier songwriting, with new vocal recruit Frosty B's sung choruses sweetening the punch of the MC's wordplay and street urchin humour.
This new collection of less dark and overtly political tracks has been coalescing over some years, and defines for the first time on record the Black Grapey, party vibe that Twin Lizard always bring to their live shows.
