World's Famous Supreme Team: Rappin' (Virgin)

Paul Mathur, Melody Maker, 31 May 1986

LIKE Old Mr Grace being wheeled in at the end of Are You Being Served? World's Famous Supreme Team are something of the grandaddies of this rap thang. Responsible for shunting the scratchy 'Buffalo Gals' into British pop consciousness and celebrating mass appropriation as a justifiable art form, we have a lot to thank them for. Surprisingly this LP actually bears it out.
