THE STAGE IS SET

LYRICAL COMMISSION – STAGE IS SET
As the first full length L.P to feature on Unkut, “The Stage Is Set…” released in January 2003, received the highest of accolades for the straight up, back to basics, no nonsense skill-fest it delivers both musically and lyrically. Backed by innovative street level marketing, it exceeded sale predictions nationwide and went on to break new ground attracting significant interest on a worldwide scale. From the very outset of “Prelude”, the take no prisoner’s attitude of L.C is prominent in this forewarning to what lay ahead. A murderous bass-line laced with the here-we-are, this-is-us type vocals of the “Press Release” remix, sees it being a stark contrast from the original yet equally incredible. “Blood Red Skies” is apocalyptic warfare, “Carlton United Tragedy” showcases Brad Strut, delivering for the addicts of heavy drums and the son’s n daughters of broken families, and “Beyond Average” is self-explanatory. “Custom Made” is an ode to the DJ, J-Red, showcasing some of the finest cuts ever pressed to wax. “Walkabout” features U.K MC Li’l Angry Man and “Got A Problem Pt.2” is a reworking of the Bob Balans classic. “Sex Fiend” is rated XXX and on “Hate The Scene” L.C let rip with an unabashed snipe at all not liked within the Australian Hip Hop Scene. Neatly rounded off with some laid back skits, “Liquorice Krills”, “Space Rap” and the ‘buy or die’ sentiments of ‘Chopper’ Read in “Read Between The Lines”.
