The Streets debut album Original Pirate Material, a timeless mix of 2-step garage realism that stands alongside Dizzee Rascal's Boy In Da Corner, Burial's Untrue & Massive Attack's Blue Lines as an important milestone within the urban music continuum.

From its iconic cover photo "Towering Inferno" by German artist and photographer Rut Blees Luxemburg to its tales of geezers fighting each other in takeaways, smoking lots of dope, being skint and memories of taking really strong/good ecstasy. Original Pirate Material still to this day stands up as a near perfect blend of the darker strains of the 2-step sound and the chart pop it's lighter side always reached out for.

A total classic and finally recut to vinyl after too many years demanding big bucks second hand by the lucky few who scored a copy first time around.
