My Top Ten Albums of 2019: #8 Body Bag Your Scene – Riskee & the Ridicule

Grime is usually regarded as the modern equivalent to 1970s punk, however there’s not been a big movement that combines the two. Riskee & The Ridicule are on a mission to rectify this. As you’d expect from such an infusion, Body Bag Your Scene is very politically charged, and its a sign of our times that there is evidently a lot of anger there in both the music and the lyrics follow suit as evidenced on Our Time “Are you scared of the working classes? Well we’re coming for your blood clot arses”, verses are spit fast and loud whilst chorus’ are catchy and a lot of the time have a real Vans Tour pop-punk hook to them. These guys are, in my opinion, going places.
