Dan Le Sac Vs Scroobius Pip - Thou Shalt Always Kill
So let’s be direct here and say ‘Thou Shalt Always Kill’ is a huge tune. It’s so big, you’ve most likely heard it many times already. For that matter you’ve probably discussed a number of the ‘commandments’ spelt out by Mr Scroobius Pip with your mates in the pub...
Maybe you’ve remembered the last time you bought the NME and wondered why it's become so damn retrograde and lame. Or perhaps you’ve recounted the times you’ve trawled back to that same bar on the off chance that girl/boy might once again be there and that your eyes might finally meet. And then there’s always the question as to which character did Danny Glover play in Lethal Weapon and is Mel Gibson really a racist, god fearing f***head etc??
Yes boss, this track is a conversational stimulant likely to make you sit around for 3 hours longer in the pub than you said you would when you left their girlfriend/boyfriend at home with a promise it was ‘Just the one’…
But 'Thou Sahlt Always Kill' isn’t just a novelty track. It’s the very combination of Scroobious Pips fine lyrics plus Dan Le Sacs wondrous production that makes this a step above other 'advice' tracks like ‘Sunscreen’. If you don’t like or have become too knowledgeable of the vocal, you can forget it and dip your head into the wibblingly wonderful brilliance of the Le Sac production.
Make no mistake, Mr Dan Le Sac is double talented. He knows how to move a beat and how to move bums off of seats and onto dance floors without relying on tired old formulas of build ups and break downs: Le Sac is no Pete Tong impersonator, but a producer with his very own ways and means.
The result is that ‘Thou Shalt Always Kill’ has spunk, verve, attitude and humour. It has rhythm to shake even the vaguest and most reluctant of booties. It has soul and style and if it’s not number 1 in 2 or 3 weeks time, the world might well be over…
So pay these guys your money and make it be done….
