NICEUP! are a bunch of Londoners, who throw parties and release some party-bootleg 7-inches from time to time, that are always of the highest quality. First one i bought was a crazy mashup with the vocals of "Multiply" by Jamie Lidell on top of some Ska/Rocksteady/reggae version, which sounds like a nightmare come true, but worked amazingly well. Together with J-Star they are not only the earliest but definetly the top Reggae bootleggers.
This time they blended the vocals of GOSSIP'S "Standing in the way of control" on a Ska/Reggae instrumental and - again - it works so great!
You can still buy this rare 7 Inch at Juno Records and piccadilly. Do it quick, before it's gone forever.
(I had to use this picture of Beth Ditto/The Gossip, used for the NME cover. To me one of the most remarkable Rock-portraits of the last 20 years.)
