Two Fingers and Sway return with the standout cut from their eponymous debut album, the brutal, beautiful, funny and threatening “That Girl” Telling the story of a girl who is herself brutal and beautiful (and not a little mad), this superb tune also features Sway-protegee, the folkabilly maniac Kevin Tuffy. Mixed down for the radio edit by Toddla T collaborator and former Fat Trucker Ross Orton, this Government of All The Talents have created pure fiscal stimulus for recessionary ears everywhere.

Two Fingers are Brazilian beat-adventurer Amon Tobin and Joe “Doubleclick” Chapman. The pair met when Tobin lived in Brighton and bonded over an interest in music that ran way beyond the boundaries of “electronica”. In Montreal they applied production techniques associated with UK styles like drum & bass to the template of hip hop. It was an experiment with explosive results. When MOBO-winner Sway (now signed to Akon’s Konvict label in the US) heard what was brewing he was so taken with it, he flew straight out to Montreal and recorded seven tracks with them, the pick of which was “That Girl”.

On “That GirlTobin and Chapman tie together a room-shaking drum break with cartoon guitar riffs and a sense of build you don’t often get in hip hop. Over, Sway drops lyrical gems about this “over-fine” girl and Tuffy rounds things out with a chorus that wouldn’t sound out of place on a Blur record. It’s a breath-taking combination, an adrenalin shot dropped in an alcopop.

Throw in a truly crazed, pedal-to-the-metal drum ‘n’ bass mix from Spor (not recommended listening for those already concerned about premature hair loss) and a bonkers happy-Sega mix from High Rankin and you have a fine package of musical treats. Everyone can approve. Maybe even that girl…
