The debut album.  Self-produced, self-financed, self-aggrandising.

It’s not a bad first effort.  He was only young…

3. Ya Basta Hermanos

4. Comic Belief

9. God’s Country

10. But Enough About Me

 

"Blizzard’s cultural mash of rap/folk/politics is like nothing you have heard. Stripped down beats serve as a backdrop for a half sung, half spoken rap style that is both honest and engaging…. On top of this Clayton Blizzard is a lyrical genius".

Review from Last Hours

 

"The drums are too loud".

where you can buy Blizzard merchandise.  

You might be able to blag them from somewhere, but if you pay for them,

it would really help us out.

"Clayton Blizzard is a lyrical genius. Despite admitting ‘All the best lines in (his) rhymes are stolen’ the way he twists words and phrases together is both intelligent and interesting…. Check it out right now!"

Tom Fiction, Last Hours

 

"Lyrically this finds Clayton Blizzard on top form, put across through his trademark mixture of folk and hip-hop. The ideas of peace, love and grass roots politics are major themes throughout, cut together with a razor sharp, yet self-deprecating and down to Earth wit that never feels preachy or forced upon".

Dan Tuesday, Last Hours

 

“…Beautiful sounding guitar and lyrics that make you chuckle while listening out for the next great line…a new twist on folk music which is something more inspired than both most commercial rap and most commercial folk.”

Screamlite Records

 

"Much better than the last one."

Ginz

Author’s Note

This album was made in a two-stage process.  The first stage involved recording acoustic songs and sounds.  The analogue tracks from these sessions were then ripped apart and re-assembled as new songs.  The original recordings were the sole source material.  Vocals were then recorded for the new songs and the whole album was mixed together.
