Thingabout London

"You see London pulls the wool over your eyes, and day to day keeps you hypnotised ..." Asher Senator is another MC who came through the south London reggae ranks at the same time as Smiley Culture, and among the tracks he made would be the wonderful Abbreviation Qualification. He is also probably the only man to mention Fu Manchu and Danny La Rue in the same verse. Nearly a quarter of a century on from first recording for Fashion Records Asher would take time out from his youth/community work to record Thingabout London for fashion label English Eccentrics. It's a quite lovely thing ...
