[RATING: 5] I don’t know – those Allergies boys, they make you feel good and they know how to turn you on. Oh wait, no, that’s – well…never mind. What I meant was The Allergies make you feel good and they know every trick in the book – which, as we all know, has resulted in an impressive run of grooves that keep you hooked. Take their forthcoming 45 banger – er – Every Trick In The Book on which the pair find an old Ike & Tina song behind your ear, shove it in a box, saw it into pieces and re-assemble into something vital and groovy after adding a plethora of rhythmic additions that it shouldn’t have been possible to fit under their baseball hats. Could this be the A-side for the new seven inch that has the recently announced Allergies feat. Andy Cooper cover of Big Daddy Kane’s Nuff Respect on the flip? Yes, it could – mystery solved!
