Atomic Hooligan ‘Sex, Drugs & Blah Blah Blah’
Label: BOTCHIT & SCARPER
Rel Date: March 17th 08
Cat No: Bos2LP027
Sex, Drugs & Balh Blah Blah is a step beyond their last album, with new vocalists, new live instrumentation, and a new outlook on music, the Hooligans have outdone themselves again.
Their sophomore album see's the return of long time Hooligan collaborator, Justine Berry of Hey Gravity, along with new vocalist to the camp & future superstar, Elmo Jones of the Furies. The lads have also employed a couple of Hip Hop legends from both sides of the Atlantic. DJ Premier collaborator, Afu Ra opens the album with an explosive performance to set the mood, then later on in the set, UK don Genasis Elijah, rips it up like only this rhyme animal can. The album also features Playboy -UK Cyber girl of the Year Alex Sim-Wise, turning in a trashy electro style chant for the masses.
The Hooligans have gone deeper with their production on this set. They pulled in string arranger Jote Osahn , well known for her work with the Gorillaz & Root Manuva, along with an entire brass section to round their sound out.
And if that wasn’t enough Christin Ward (DC Comics) has whipped up some of his amazing, twisted artwork to package the whole thing.
This big melting pot of talent really does make for one tasty musical stew by anyone’s standards

ATOMIC HOOLIGAN BIOGWhile their last album “You are Here” was winning awards and accolades from all quarters, The Atomic Hooligan DJ schedule never slowed down and with no halt in sight it’s no wonder that again, Atomic Hooligan have been voted in the top 3 Breakbeat DJ’s in the world. 2007 has already seen them rock parties in Japan, China, New Zealand, Australia, Russia, Canada and all over the UK and Europe including regular spots at the worlds most admired club Fabric.
In between gracing the cover of DJ Mag and all of this activity the band have also put together their all new live show. The last incarnation of Atomic Hooligan live rocked heads from Glastonbury to The Secret Garden Festival amongst other major festivals and clubs all over the UK, Europe Japan. Their new revised show takes this a step further and with gigs already confirmed in early 2008, everyone involved is very excited.
Their hectic DJ schedule has always been due in part to the guy’s impressive remix catalogue. Underworld actually met them and told them they and V2 / Junior Boys Own were so happy with AH’s bootleg of ‘Cowgirl’/ ‘Rez’ that they go t them to do an official remix of Born Slippy! They also put their guaranteed dance floor smash stamp of approval on Andy Gardener & Lee Coombes “Obsessional Rhythm” (No.1 in the Beats and Breaks Chart). With a whole bunch of fresh music about to be unleashed and a DJ and live schedule which is already looking very busy over the next 6 months, The Hooligan phenomenon continues to spread.
Always informed by Breakbeat but never locked down by it. When you listen to their body of work or any of their DJ sets you will find that you can never quite place your finger on any one defining style, but know that you are enjoying yourself just listening. This will all be further confirmed in February 2008 when their follow up album hits the shelves.
This big melting pot of talent really does make for one tasty musical stew by anyone’s standard...Unless your planning on sleeping under a rock this year you'll be hearing a whole lot more from these pioneering musical gents!
