I'm yer dad, so get to bed, you bastard

Listening to that LDN Is A Victim song yesterday reminded me of the great MC Pitman. Why? I don't really know. Maybe because he has the same level of detached distaste for everything that's trendy. Read an interview with him here.

Not a lot is known about the Pitman. He's from the north, possibly from the mines. He loves tea and biscuits - play the "Find the Tea" game at his site - his rhymes, over better known beats, are solid and usually very funny. At his myspace, check out 'Witness The Pitness', a story about going for a Sunday at his mum's, set to the Roots Manuva track, and there are a few Mike Skinner disses in there.

This song is from his first record, 'It Takes A Nation of Tossers' and though you'll enjoy it more if you're British, it's not without value to people from other countries who have ears. There's a shout out to Robbie Coltrane, plus 50 Cent ("Get back to your club, mate, and fuckin' stay"). You'll recognise the riff from 'Simon Says' by Pharoahe Monch, and perhaps the hook from a song by one of the Spice Girls.
