about

The second release from MIC comes from Ladies As Pimps - LAPS for short - an anarchic Glasgow duo formed by Cass Ezeji of Golden Teacher and Alicia Matthews (Sue Zuki/ Organs Of Love).

Their duets take centre stage on Who Me?: the vocal performances range from the stretched, soulful projections of Ode To Daughter to the lawless, clipped, sweet & sour, spat-not-spoken word of Edges.

Spirited percussion scatters in all directions and bass is smothered in tape delay, as the five tracks beat through Dub, RnB, House, and way beyond, circling around acts like Madame X, The Bug, Stuart Argabright, Francois K, mashing absurdity with dread. Recorded at Green Door studios in Glasgow (where the two met) and layered with the analogue production techniques learned on the first youth unemployment programme there, the energy and charisma of these recordings promise a pretty unique live show when they tour later this year.

about

LAPS Glasgow, UK

Glaswegian duo Alicia Matthews (SUE ZUKI/ Organs of Love) and Cassie Ezeji (Golden Teacher) were neighbourhood sweethearts who cemented their love over the Tascam analogue tape recorder in Glasgow’s Green Door Studio back in 2011. Frequently compared to the likes of ESG and Lizzy Mercier Descloux yet the pair cite Ru Paul as their main influence. ... more
