Crowhead – aka Woody – is an unsung hero of Manchester’s underground club scene, having worked with Fat City for years promoting their ‘Counter Culture’ and ‘Friends & Family’ nights. An obsessive collector of rare and obscure vinyl, he’s DJ’d worldwide and released two singles as The Nudge on the now defunct Grand Central Records. In 2008 he signed to ATIC and immediately set about creating his debut LP, ‘Born With Teeth’, due for release on 12th October 2009.
This first single from the album sees Crowhead re-connect with Milwaukee’s Rusty P’s on ‘Best Kept Secret (I Guess)’, a club smashing hip-hop anthem the likes of which you just don’t hear anymore! Meanwhile, ‘Brand New’ finds Chorley resident and pioneering UK hip-hop legend Mikey D.O.N. (of ‘Krispy’ fame) pushing himself hard with line after line of exquisitely crafted lyrics over minimal synth squelches and a scratchy breakbeat. Serious stuff.
The limited edition, DJ friendly 12” vinyl version includes instrumentals and acappellas (!) of both tracks, whilst the digital release features an exclusive, non-LP track, ‘But No’.
