Record Store Day 2022 - 180g light green lp

Released: 23rd Apr 2022

£23.99


10th anniversary of the band's debut album.

Previously only released on vinyl as an offical store run of 1000. Album features 'Down With The Trumpets', 'Mama Do The Hump' and 'When I Was A Youngster'. ‘Stereo Typical' has been newly mastered for 180 gm vinyl at Abbey Road Studios, and is housed in an eye-catching gatefold sleeve reproducing the original artwork. ‘Stereo Typical' was the Brighton Hip-Hop duo's debut album, peaking at No. 5 . It includes the singles 'Down With The Trumpets' (No. 8), 'When I Was A Youngster' (No. 8 - included in the soundtrack to director Danny Boyle's opening ceremony at the 2012 London Olympic Games), the Fatboy Slim-produced 'Mama Do The Hump' (No. 2 - denied the top spot by Jessie J's 'Domino', despite a promo video featuring a cameo appearance from James Corden) and 'Traveller's Chant' (No. 44). The album was well-received by the media, with The Guardian describing it as a "cute soundbed for quickfire lyrics that reveal them to be typical teenage boys", while the NME felt it had "a boundless charm that's hard not to like". Q Magazine called Rizzle Kicks "a pop prospect with a winning charm you just can't teach", and the US AllMusic site said, "Stereo Typical's good-natured swagger marks Rizzle Kicks out as one of the British urban scene's most entertaining new talents." A black vinyl LP edition of 'Stereo Typical' was released via the band's website in April 2012, and limited to 1,000 units. If you can track a copy down, expect to pay more than £60. Rizzle Kicks were Jordan 'Rizzle' Stephens and Harley 'Sylvester' Alexander-Sule; they met while attending rap and performance workshops with the Brighton-based charity AudioActive, and later both atended the BRITs School. In September 2011, Rizzle Kicks were featured artists on Olly Mur's No. 1 single 'Heart Skips A Beat', which they performed at the 2012 BRIT Awards, whilst 'Mama do The Hump' was nominated for British Single of the Year at The BRIT Awards in 2013 (they lost out to 'Skyfall' by Adele). The duo released their second album, 'Roaring 20s' in September 2013, when it peaked at No. 3 and gave them three further Top 20 singles - 'Lost Generation' (No. 6), 'Skip To The Good Bit' (No. 16) and 'Tell Her' (No. 14). Since then both Jordan and Harley have both pursued careers in acting; Jordan appeared in the E4 TV drama Glue in 2014 and in Star Wars: Rogue One in 2016. Harley appeared in the British crime drama The Guvnors in 2014 and the ITV drama series Unforgotten in 2015
