Editorial Reviews

Originally released in 1997 on Pleasure Records this is a collection of his earliest EPs and has been widely unavailable for some time. Re-issued for no reason other than the fact it's just ace and you're missing a piece of Scruff without it, there are many strips of excellence to be found within it. Whether in the gorgeously silky funk of 'Jazz Potato', the strangely intoxicating dub momentum of 'Sea Mammal', the swift sliding beats of 'Bounce' or the ridiculously groovy 'Chicken In a Box', Mrs Cruff is a delight and shows that's Scruff's talents were there from a very early stage. Ninja Tune. 2005.

Biography

As a DJ, Andy Carthy aka Mr. Scruff plays across the board, flitting between soul, funk, hip hop, jazz, reggae, latin, african, ska, disco, house, funk, breaks, soundtracks and loads more. As a producer he makes music that draws on these influences, with a large dose of cheek and good humour. His cartoon drawings illustrate gig flyers, record sleeves and CD covers, and usually accompany him at ... Read more in Amazon's Mr. Scruff Store

usually i'd wait a while before writing a review, but this is top notch trip hop. i use the term trip hop because he uses it on his website. most of his songs are fun and a little up tempo, but chill at the same time. This is a great album and would definitely recommend this to any fan of trip hop or hip hop

We live in a post-clubbing era, when no one seriously suggests that DJs can become superstars any more. Yet Manchester's Mr Scruff has seen his star rise in recent years. He represents the perfect antidote to the cult of the superstar DJ: a self-effacing figure, he sells cups of tea at his live shows and festoons his sleeves with cartoons. Despite a lack of media coverage and his nonexistent image, his sets have become major events, attracting the sort of devoted follower who was supposed to have deserted the dance floor long ago.

While Mr. Scruff's eponymous debut may be a little rough around the edges, the personality comes through bright and clear. The cheeky samples, coupled with funky hip-hop rhythms and playful instrumentation, make for pure listening pleasure. Though the loops are simple and lack his later sophistication (like on "Tubby Mechanical Friend"), an undoubted sense of fun emerges. "Chicken in a Box" is a perfect example, starting off with a wicked flute, then swinging into a string and beats workout. "Night Time" goes for some jazzy breaks, the soundtrack to your evening's pleasures (or, conversely, you could try "Jazz Potato"). The flying arms and legs of "Limbic Funk" make for a strangely sexy time. The album shows its age but is only the more groundbreaking for it.

CD is in excellent shape. The music is a very interesting blend of jazz and global as well as abstract music. Great artist!!! I will purchase more of the same in the future. Thanks!!!!"

A bit weird, not as developed as Ninja Tuna or Trouser Jazz. It appears to be good for a DJ not for listening alone.
