Original Pirate Material is the debut studio album by English rapper and producer Mike Skinner, under the music project the Streets. Recorded mostly in the south London house that Skinner was renting, using a laptop with digital audio software, the album is musically influenced by UK garage and US hip hop, while the lyrics tell stories of British working-class life. It was supported by four singles, Has It Come to This, Let's Push Things Forward, Weak Become Heroes and Don't Mug Yourself. The Streets. Let's Push Things Forward. Sharp Darts. Geezers Need Excitement. It's Too Late. Album 2002 14 Songs. Over innovative, grimy electronic beats, Skinner's spoken-word misadventures see him hopping public transportation, swaggering around the pub, and ending his nights with a mix of impending violence and greasy 3 a. takeout grub. Check his cheeky Brummie brogue coming to the fore on the skanking Let's Push Things Forward, while the squelch-funk of Too Much Brandy provides the perfect backdrop for his tipsy witticisms.

Original Pirate Material gave British rap an authentic new voice and provided the link between the Kinks and Dizzee Rascal. Who else made our albums of the decade list Ben Thompson. And the Streets' triumphantly down-home 2002 debut, Original Pirate Material, ticks these boxes for the first decade of the 21st century with the same winning flourish as Massive Attack's Blue Lines did for the 1990s. As large as the album looms over the British musical landscape of late 2009, its roots were to be found in the heyday of UK garage. Every garage MC to my knowledge at that time was really a rapper, Skinner remembers

Folk music has always been an important part of the busking scene. Cafe, restaurant, bar and pub busking is a mainstay of this art form. Sometimes a performer will employ a bottler, hat man, or pitch man to collect money from the audience. The term bottler is a British term which originated following the use of the top half of a bottle to collect money. Hayley Westenra at one time busked on the streets of Christchurch, New Zealand.

It worked for these guys. But before becoming that, Édith started off as a street performer. She had a rough childhood and she had to accompany her father in his acrobatic street performances in order to make a living. So she started singing in public at the age of 14.

Move D played "Has it come to this?" at Gottwood, Wales, 2014. The whole crowed started singing along. As a french boy who obviously did'nt know this album, it was a pretty great memory. Partying with the Brits is as fun as it gets
It was and remains a great album. A perfect film score for many people's lives in their younger days.Lee Satchel you [email protected]
Note: Side A also has GUY'S ELECTRIC etched on runout
What aload of horse [email protected]#! Thank god it's over and he's no longer relevant!
Not much is known about it. Seems to be pretty obscure considering that I had to add it to the database.
Really great pressing, nice and flat, pressed perfectly on centre and no sibilance. Great pickup.
Overdue reissue of a brilliant document of UK life circa 2002. Excellent pressing nice sound and a decent finish on the discs. Single sleeve with picture inners are a nice touch. Skinners delivery is a mix of London Street poetry, pub banter, amateur rap and football chanting. Totally original totally brilliant. This hasn't dated in my ears whatsoever. Essential record.
Except he's from Birmingham :) extra words extra words extra words
I remember really liking this when it came out, but man has this aged terribly.
why is this so expensive, i literally can't justify £90 on a record :/
Small Black
Why are copies of this album worth so much money now? I remember 3 years ago you could get a mint original for £20 easy. Now even after it's been repressed all copies seem to make at least £100!!
Have you been to charity shops these days? They check Discogs and want median price plus the postage cost most of the time... Very few you can get records for decent prices in, and even then it's usually your usual junk like Kylie & Jason, Mantovani etc.
If you hang out at second hand / charity shops you can find it for less than £5 in almost perfaderf condition ;) <3
Any news about another repress? Bla bla bla bla bla
I don't know why this is fetching high prices on here, I brought a sealed copy from HMV just last year (as my original UK copy was played to death) for £13.99
This is the original press with the magazine review sticker on the top right.
Any idea about when this was printed? I got mine from retail in early 2016.
The one I bought from amazon in 2015 has a release date on their sales page of 2010.
Would love to purchase a nm+ copy of this for a reasonable price!
Would love a repress of the 2xLP, those prices are crazy
Great record! Really good pressing. Classic album from Skinner.
If there's one thing that cannot be denied about Mike Skinner's concept with this album, it is that he scooped up everything that could possibly be representative of suburban culture in 2002 & practically bagged it into a grubby audio time capsule. The beats are EXPERTLY sparse & plastic, like the Mars (TM)- bar hanging out his off license plaggy bag on the album insert. Those with the intelligence & cultural awareness needed to see the art in this gave it high praise, & those without, didn't. It's that very division that defines a successful work like this. It's not for everyone.
Badly produced beats with inane half baked rambling.The lowest common denominator.0-10.

Pfft yeah right, son. more words etc for the post quota
Just spoke to my pirate friend and he said he didn't like this album either.
Samrai Badly produced beats with inane half baked rambling.The lowest common denominator.0-10. Badly produced beats? Please let me hear your productions my friend.....
The best album I own. I saw him play through the songs live when he headlined the dance tent at Leeds Festival in 2002, which, so Ive heard down the grapevine, was the first time Mike Skinner had played live in his life. I'd read about him in NME but never heard any of the tunes and he started off with 'Turn The Page' and I was completely drawn in. The best live set I've ever seen by a country mile. When he was at the top of his game, just after this album was released, he was untouchable IMO
A seminal classic. I remember first hearing this, leaning out of a window on a grey, rainy day with a smoke. It absolutely blew me away. I already had the 1st single [Has It Come To This] and yet I wasn't expecting a wall-to-wall classic. This was the album that I wish I'd made - Skinner encapsulated the zeitgeist of the disenfranchised with a unique flow and beat-set. I've been 'hooked on Streets' ever since.
I loved this album and cudnt stop listening 2 it.I love still pulling it out now and again.I love Mike Skinners str8 2 da piont lyrics and his production on this is second 2 none.His other albums are quiet Good.But this Album was never topped.It just one of them albums that was off its time and still is Timeless 2day luv it. 5/5
Im not into UK Garage but this album is an exception. It caused such a storm, it was unique, fresh & something very very different. What i like about The Streets is that what Mike raps about is to the point, relevant & he obviously knows the score & what he's talking about. My fav tune has to be "Has It Come To This?" with the vocals "...Original Pirate Material..." being the best part of the tune...pure genius! The only down side to this album is that every tune is faded into one another & this can make it abit hard to mix with.
As legend goes...Mike Skinner apparently nicked most of the beats from some other Garage duo to create this record. So goes music. Master steals from protege as protege steals from other. This has been going on for ages. In any regard...this was one of the best 'pop' records of 2002. Combinging UK garage technique with lager lad lyrics and sharp wit and flow, Mike Skinner is an MC to be reckoned with. He puts his pulse on the heartbeat of the UK and counts out that pattern as a loop for a track. He got the pulse and timing right to capture a hundred thousand would be newbee ravers as well as the old schoolers too. He translated that 'get away from it all weekend' with tracks that made you feel pissed or off yer face on fungus in the 'Dam. Skinner also made softer tracks about young love and regret that balanced all the substance abuse with a little humility. This makes it a pop record to me and great at the same time... and pop isn't necessarily a bad word. In all regards, stolen beats or not, this is a pretty great record.
The beats you mention as nicked may relate to a guy named Mighty Mouth.
Alot of people are skeptical of Mike Skinner because of his delivery. In all actuality, the guy has more style and substance than any 10 MCs you can think of in mainsteam or underground hiphop today. On this album, he's brilliantly witty, his beats are diverse and interesting, and his subject matter is far from the norm in hiphop. Absolutely a classic release!
This album came out of nowhere with a huge bang. There was so much tripe around, very little originality, nobody speaking up for the current generation or saying anything worth saying about the (British) society we live in today. Then along comes the supremely talented Mike Skinner with this ultra classic creation from his bedroom. It sounds like it was made on equipment from yesteryear but that does not detract from this release one bit. Astounding lyrics that are incredibly witty and poignant at the same time, sung at street level, backed by clever funky beats. This is urban poetry for the 21st century generation.
lets go baby
when i first heard this, i didn't know what to think of it. it was certainly different, but in a good way? i don't know, but it wasn't in a bad way; that's for sure. in america, i hear hip-hop a lot and it's usually from radio. most of it all of it is crap, so this was a good change of pace. unfortunatly, because it was so different and unique i didn't understand it initially. now, after repeat listens, mike skinner in my eyes has become one of the saviors of rap in its raw form. not necessary about the beats, but entirey about the lyrics.
groundbreaking release, artistic & experiemental to the fullest. As branded it carries certain degrees of Garage & hip hop influences but with that we aren't talking 2Pac meets The Artful Dodger. Its like The Prodigy were to the dance scene, can't just be labelled with one genre - maybe best described as a unique sounding, pure form of material of the future.
