Beginnings

I've been obsessing over these today, asking myself what the man who once showed so much promise with his lo-fi Brixton-hop thought exactly he was doing with everything (well, most things) that followed his first release proper, Brand New Second Hand. It serves well as a point of contrast (in a strange regressive way) with Dizzee Rascal's Butterfly - recent b-side to the single Bonkers. Simon Reynolds' Guardian blog post on Butterfly hitting no.1 in the singles chart can be read here. The b-side is much more worth the listen in my humble opinion, however.
