Description du produit
Qu'est-ce que la Wild Bunch ? C'est le son du sound system bristolien le plus en vue avant l'arrivée de Massive Attack, Tricky et autre Portishead, l'huile essentielle à la base du trip-hop, formule qui a fait la recette que l'on sait depuis. C'est-à-dire un creuset où se mêlent en vrac les influences du hip-hop, du dub, du funk, de la house, de la soul music, des bandes originales de films, des samples d'Isaac Hayes, Ennio Morricone et mille autres choses. La présente histoire a été concoctée par Miles Johnson, alias DJ Milo, depuis exilé à New York, qui en fut à l'époque un des principaux instigateurs avec les géniaux Nellee Hooper (sans qui Björk n'eut pas été tout à fait la même sur Debut) et Grant Marshall, aka Daddy G, l'un des trois fondateurs de Massive Attack avec Mushroom et 3D. Soit un mix en apesanteur, fidèle aux Tables de la Loi du genre. --Hervé Comte

Un des Dj est d' ailleurs un des fondateurs de la Massive Attack.
Ce disque est une référence en terme de mix et de son. Un fort accent funk et soul avec un brin d' influence hip-hop. A acheter les yeux fermés avant la nouvelle sortie très attendue des Massive Attack. Underground et Old School, avec un livret très instructif sur l' historique de la Wild Bunch.

Well, last year my dream came true with the release of The Wild Bunch: Story of a Sound System. I didn't know it was out until I got it for my birthday. I absolutely freaked out when I saw it. It had this cool picture of Grant Marshall, Nellee Hooper, Willy Wee (I recognized him from the "Daydreaming" video), and someone who looked like Andrew Vowles. (I found out that it was not him, but DJ Milo, the guy who mixed the album. Now, the story of the Wild Bunch is sort of jumbled and the web sites that do have info on the group don't have much, so I had never heard of DJ Milo before.)
The album itself consisted of early American Hip-Hop and R&B/Dance tracks with samples of Grant Marshall's MC talents in about five spots. In one spot, there is a one minute snippet of an early instrumental Wild Bunch track and at the end of the CD, there is a single performed by The Wild Bunch with Shara Nelson, Massive's first female vocal collaborator on "Blue Lines". I had never heard of any of the other groups on the album, save two or three, but I own albums from artists who sample bits of the first 11 tracks on this collection! That was another cool thing about this. Some of these tracks contain the original clips of samples heard in: BT's "Movement In Still Life"; The Freestylers' "We Rock Hard; The Propellerheads' "DECKSANDDRUMSANDROCKANDROLL"; Mr. Oizo's "Analog Worms Attack"; Moby's "Play"; and countless others I've heard and don't own.
All of the tracks are mixed by DJ Milo. I've never heard of him doing anything anywhere else because he's been retired since the group broke up back in '87, before Massive formed. Not having a reputation means squat! This guy is the best DJ I've ever heard mix an album! Sometimes, with continuous mix CDs, the breaks in the songs are very noticeable. On this one, we were 4 or 5 tracks into it before we looked at the player and realized the song had changed. Very cool! Plus, on one of the tracks, he layers one song on top of the other, using the vocals from one to loop over the instrumental of the other! Something I've only heard Cirrus and Prodigy's Liam Howlett do. Even cooler!!
The booklet inside tells the complete story of the collective through the words of DJ Milo himself and Massive Attack's own Robert Del Naja. There are also numerous other comments from fans who saw the group's act, who now have recording contracts, such as Goldie and DJ Krust plus info about onlookers Roni Size, Smith & Mighty, and Geoff Barrow of Portishead. There are several other cool photos of the group performing as well, with shots of Robert, Milo, Grant, Nellee, Willy, and Andrew 'Mushroom' Vowles as a teenager! (I think that you can see Tricky in the one on the back of the booklet, I'm not sure. It may be Willy.)
The first half of the album represents Massive's hip-hop roots while the second half represents their soul/dance influences. A very cool, complete package. The only thing that would make it better would be more tracks by The Wild Bunch themselves, but that doesn't take anything away from this collection(maybe they'll put out another one). It is a "must have"! (I cannot believe the price of this album. If I didn't already have it, I'd pay a heck of a lot more for it than what amazon is charging!) Any fan of Massive Attack or old-school rap would be advised to purchase this right away, for themselves and all their friends.
I recommend this album to the enthusiast who wishes to discover the roots of such acts as Massive Attack, Portishead, Smith & Mighty, Roni Size...etc. Yes indeed the material may seem a teensy bit outdated by todays standards but in the mid 80s, trust me this was groundbreaking stuff, so please do not consider this as a recent Massive Attack outing, think of it more as a historical reference tracing back the roots of one of the most influential bands of the last decade.
As regards the album itself the first part is highly loaded with old school hip hop (it certainly bought back some fun memories) whereas the second part is more funk, disco and housey, with the whole album being interspersed with a healthy dose of MCing. All round a quadruple A rating for the boys out of Bristol and their entourage.
this album is just a glimpse at how the band started in bristol u.k in the mid eightie's.
Massive attack new album"100 th window" is being released in february and i have listen to it and it 's really really good,sounds like "mezzanine" but even more darker and less "new wavy" and more into jamaïcan dub kind of vibe with vocals by horace andy,sinead o'connor,amongst others!
