THE ALLERGIES: Vamonos feat. ANDY COOPER & MARIETTA SMITH (Vinyl 7″)

THE ALLERGIES: Vamonos feat. ANDY COOPER & MARIETTA SMITHThe dream-team is back then, as The Allergies team-up with Andy Cooper and Marietta Smith to launch Vamonos, their first drop in quite some time – since November if the monkey remembers correctly. Vamonos? Oh what – Spanish for ‘Let’s go’? Precisely. And given the time of year, it would make sense if this was a ‘going on holiday’ song. It is! Well, what are the chances? Naturally with a

ANDY COOPER: P.A.R.T.Y.

ANDY COOPER: P.A.R.T.Y.Doin’ it for the kids this summer is indefatigable Ugly Duckling and Allergies mic manipulator, Andy Cooper, who it seems has a forthcoming LP out entitled Kid Hop, aimed at children with the intention (it says here) to inform, educate and entertain. Before the album release however comes the release of first single P.A.R.T.Y. which provides the sort of old school – well – party-vibes

ANDY COOPER: Hot Off The Chopping Block (Vinyl LP)

ANDY COOPER: Off The Chopping Block (Vinyl LP)With absolutely no sign of abatement in his blistering release schedule (if anything, things seem to have stepped up a gear!) and barely six months since last full-length effort L.I.S.T.E.N., Long Beach emcee Andy Cooper is back already with news of his forthcoming album, Hot Off The Chopping Block.  The name, like that of 2017’s The Layered Effect, is a reference to the

ANDY COOPER: L.I.S.T.E.N. (Album)

ANDY COOPER: L.I.S.T.E.N. (Album)Rating: ★★★★★ While Ugly Duckling’s last studio album Moving At Breakneck Speed might’ve dropped a whole nine years ago, band member and emcee Andy Cooper hasn’t slowed down for a moment since. Aside from being the official ‘unofficial third member’ of the crew on all The Allergies’ albums and a host of their singles, the last nine years have also seen him deliver two solo

ANDY COOPER: L.I.S.T.E.N. video

Rating: ★★★★★ A week ahead of next week’s L.I.S.T.E.N. LP release from Andy Cooper comes the video for the title track revealing a number that’ll definitely make you perk your ears up, not to mention open your eyes wide. There’s Andy’s chaingun vocals of course and also the clear visual references to Children’s Workshop TV of the 70s and 80s as a host of AC’s homies don costumes to

ANDY COOPER: The Man (Vinyl 7″)

ANDY COOPER: The ManIt’s time to welcome back Long Beach M.C. Andy Cooper with the first single off his forthcoming next solo LP L.I.S.T.E.N. entitled The Man. Clearly AC decided to err on the side of caution title-wise instead of running with the rather more exciting Zulu Space Anus (as previously promised on the ‘Gram) so that the monkey would find it harder to work into a sentence. A craven u-turn, I think

THE ALLERGIES feat. ANDY COOPER: ‘I Just Got That Feeling’ video

THE ALLERGIES feat. ANDY COOPER: 'I Just Got That Feeling' videoJust out, it’s the new video for Andy Cooper-featuring track, I Just Got That Feeling, off latest Allergies album – the excellent Say The Word.  Probably the most serious track of the set, said cut provides a mid-LP moment of introspection and reflection amid the bubblegum breakbeat thrills, recalling material from Audacity-era Ugly Duckling. “Sometimes I stand in front of the mirror

THE ALLERGIES: Felony/ Rile ‘Em Up (feat. ANDY COOPER & MARIETTA SMITH)(Vinyl 7″)

THE ALLERGIES: Felony/ Rile 'Em Up (feat. ANDY COOPER & MARIETTA SMITH)(Vinyl 7Rating: ★★★★★ New Allergies LP Say The Word drops later this year but it would be tantamount to a felony for them to leave you till then without any new material. Which is why they’re all set to rile you up with a new vinyl 45 out today entitled – er – Felony and backed with the Andy Cooper and Marietta Smith-featuring Rile ‘Em Up. The former is the result of the boys having co-opted another

THE ALLERGIES: Why You Buggin’ (feat. ANDY COOPER)/ Downtime (ALLERGIES remix )

THE ALLERGIES: Why You Buggin' (feat. ANDY COOPER)/ Downtime (ALLERGIES remix )How’s this for a payload? Bombstrikes returning to wax with Andy Cooper feat. The Allergies and their Run DMC cover Why You Buggin’ on the A-side and an Allergies remix of Dr Syntax and Pete Cannon’s Downtime on the flip. I know! Apart from that Boca 45/ Mohawestra special a couple of years ago, I don’t think Bombstrikes have messed with vinyl for the best part of a decade. Why You

THE ALLERGIES feat. ANDY COOPER: Nuff Respect

THE ALLERGIES feat. ANDY COOPER: Nuff Respect I hope you’re ready for new Allergies material because, Nuff Respect, their next track featuring the increasingly official-looking ‘unofficial third member’ Andy Cooper, has just dropped. Hang on wasn’t Nuff Respect a Big Daddy Kane cut? Yep, it’s rap cover time as the boys re-work a biggie from back in the day and give props to a golden era legend. Like the original, this one loops crowd
