Bill Laswell: Broken Toenail Gland (Innerhythmic, 2008)
Bill Laswell: literally interesting. This fantastic track is taken from his marvelous new record what he did make with some other chaps. It is a bit hip hop, a bit abstract beat poetry, a bit funk, a bit dub and, well, a bit great. It is definitely grown-ups music, but, while it knows how to eat a piece of grilled fish without dropping the majority of it over its freshly-pressed trousers, it is still alive to the very real possibility of a spot lunacy. And who wouldn't want a piece of that?
