Boomkat Product Review:
Pest come through with one of the standout tracks from their recent, critically-acclaimed debut album, 'Necessary Measures'. With the attention span of ritalin-denied kiddies and a seeming love of everything from Tex Avery to Frank Zappa to classic hip hop to bad speed, this five piece from South East London are making the kind of music which could only come out of the capital's unique mash up of musical influences, weird humour and unchecked aggression. 'Chicken Spit' is a kind of a love song for mutually consenting fowls, which when you think about it is a beautiful thing. 'Already Said' ups the ante yet again by fracturing deep funk into a million tiny pieces and putting them back together as something just a little scary. Over, remix duties come courtesy of Pest themselves, who prove there's more to UK Garage than the Streets and Dizzee Rascal by jamming an orchestra down 2step's throat on the 'Wulf Step' mix. Finally 'Me We Remix' open out the whole thing for the dancefloor.
