Song of the Day # 1,223 The Goats

Slightly unjustly forgotten Hip Hop band from the early nineties. In the slipstream of Tribe Called Quest, The Jungle Brothers, Pharcyde et al when to my ears the genre was at its height before Gangster Rap inadvisably took hold. This, Typical American, and the whole of their 1992 album Tricks of the Shade are well worth digging out. Here you get particularly neat use of the Mission Impossible theme and generally impeccably fluid political lyricism.
