Smiley Culture & Bobby Boom: Dingwalls, London

Jack Barron, Sounds, 5 January 1985

THE INTERPRETER of reggae mirth who says he MCs not for treasure but for pleasure inverted frowns to dental crowns, sore feet to blue beat, with a skanky sleet of wordage by the acreage. Diction without friction, and pronunciation fresh from deviation, Mr Culture made me smile although he failed to put the purr into perfect.

Total word count of piece: 473
