It's Raining Glass

8th Jul 2009
It's Raining Glass & Tears, the debut solo album from Benjamin Blower (whilst he was called Beloved), was released back in August 2004. It sold out pretty quickly and has thus been unavailable for some time now...

That is until now...

The album along with 2008's The Pillar of Smoke are now available HERE

To find out more about the album and listen to some samples, go here.

The video that was released last week was from this album, watch it now here.

The Custodians Live at Lunchtime In the Bull Ring

14th May 2009
We've got a lunchtime treat for Birmingham people. A free half-hour set of progressive hip-hop with Joel the Custodian and other Zang peeps including Greybeard and Benjamin Blower.

This will be an experiment. Who knows what will happen! There'll be live instruments, a kaoss pad and an odd bunch of rap songs and chain-gang ditties.

Don't be late: this will kick off at 12.30 in the main sanctuary of St. Martins Church In the Bullring in Brum city centre.

Michaelis Constant Remix: NEW FREE DOWNLOAD

3rd May 2009
We're talking about the late nineties/early naughties. Barrowclough, Joel the Custodian and Michael Stork were weirding out the whole UK hip hop scene as Michaelis Constant. They were a defining influence for University of the King, and a catalyst for the birth of Zang itself.

I, Mr. Z, found this lost remix of a track from their critically acclaimed and financially disasterous second album Gondwanaland. Go get it from the free downloads page. Who did the remix? It's a competition. Email your answers to ...winner gets used toothbrushes from all three MCs.

The Custodians - My Organs Are Yours PT1: New Free E.P.

6th Apr 2009

Myself and Eliot are pleased to present to you the first half of our FREE double E.P. 'My Organs Are Yours'.

The first of many releases from the Zang squad this year, this hip hop e.p. has some unusual, brain-twisting beats that really steered me into some sort of sonic rainforest, throwing me and my fellow lyricists out of the vehicle armed only with pens and pads.

My lyrics were formed in the bright raw light of diary entry confessionals, so if you read the lyrics on our ROSTER page you'll be looking into my head, which I find unsettling as well as exciting. Maybe you're going through the same stuff as me.

This first E.P. features 5 tracks with help from our friends Benjamin Blower, Greybeard, The What Supreme, Sensei C, Nicholas Noble (The Gentlemen), Supervillain, Michael Stork, Log, Cro and Christmas Carter.

Thank yous to Danielle & Melanie and Leo, Evie and Ellis!

E.P. 2 will be available on the 1st June 2009. The whole double E.P. will be available to buy on Monday the 13th April 2009 complete with a bonus track...

Grab the first E.P. HERE RIGHT NOW!

Enjoy the organs
