big strick - Resivior Dogs
One year on from the raw rump smack of 'Detroit Heat', Big Strick rounds up his boys - Omar-S, Generation Next, and Reckless Ron - for album #2, 'Resivoir Dogs'. Family ties run deep: Omar-S is Strick's cousin and 16 year old Generation Next is extended fam, lending these 13 tracks a sense of shared vision and grooving cohesion that works damn well. His yung cuz opens with the motor city astro fuel of 'Sequence 11' and also contributes the remarkably elegant minimalism of 'Windsor Nights' and 'Slow Ride', plus the gritty sci-fi jack of 'Metro' for balance. Big Strick is in large and in charge for the most, though. With cuts like the shark-eyed warehouse skulker 'Armed & Dangerous', the urgent chords of 'And Then There Was Man', the chaotic harmonies of 'Reese Cup' or the rusted, crepuscular atmosphere of 'Fallout' he presents a crucial view of Detroit which will ring truer with those who love the city's dark melancholy - not the hands-in-the-air bollocks or deferential jazz-lite - whilst Reckless Ron (whaddaname!) puts the finishing move with a mighty mission jacker named 'Night Moves'.
