‘Wordy Rappinghood’ is one of the many highlights from the Chicks album ’99 cents’. Originally written and recorded by Tom Tom Club. This version has not only the inimitable Chicks on Speed but Tina Weymouth (Tom Tom Club), Miss Kittin, Nicola Kuperus (Adult), Soffy O and Le Tigre. How can you argue with that?
For those of you not familiar with Chicks on Speed, they are an all girl, three-piece outfit from Germany, who play fantastic electronic music as well as having a strong interest in fashion. They are always guaranteed pop fun and demonstrate an incredible experimental chic. ‘Wordy Rappinghood’, from the inspired nonsense of the chorus to the guest vocal interjections, the solid catchy dance beats and the rap itself is simply wonderful. As if that wasn’t enough, the single also contains the Playgroup (Trevor Jackson) remix that stretches and plays with the song brilliantly and a glitchy low-key number called ‘Love Life’.
