Fun Lovin’ Criminals
“Scooby Snacks” / “I’m Not In Love” (Chrysalis)
by Joshua Brown
I know these guys are all the rage with pseudo-hip hop fans. To their credit, they’re actually quite good when they’re singing. When they try to rap it’s just “go, white boy, go!” to the max, in the worst sense, which is far cheesier than an American punk band feigning British accents. Stick with what you know, guys! Furthermore, using the “everybody be cool, this is a robbery!” sample from Pulp Fiction is, at this stage of the game, beyond trite.
