Noughties By Nature #20: Lupen Crook - Junk N Jubilee

Reportedly recorded in Mr Crook’s hallway, presumably during one of his rare fixed-abode phases, Junk n Jubilee is scene-savaging par excellence, flecked with spit and sarcasm. Its tune is built around a steely scrape and skitter that sounds like the malfunctioning of a music-box, and a spray of squealing laughter that makes you tense with the urge to put your fist through the window of the Hawley Arms. Lupen’s pinched-tight vocal squeezes itself through the gaps between, with all the disgusted Cassandrine despair of the only sober passenger on a nightbus home from Dalston.
