The Streets’ first two albums ‘Original Pirate Material’ and ‘A Grand Don’t Come For Free’ helped to make the UK hip-hop/garage scene a force to be reckoned with on a global scale, and established Mike Skinner as a lyricist with a gift for delivering insightful observations about everyday life.

Long out of print, both albums will be repressed and released on double vinyl on March 30th. Demand for them is as big as ever, with second hand copies of ‘Original Pirate Material’ often being listed for sale for £100 or more.

Originally released in 2002, ‘Original Pirate Material’ remains one of the most influential albums of its generation, and bridged the gap between UK garage and grime. Featuring the breakthrough hit ‘Has It Come To This’ and era-defining anthems such as ‘Weak Become Heroes’ and ‘Let’s Push Things Forward’, it made Skinner a spokesman for a generation.

As Annie Mac said to The FADER, “The album is a bona fide classic, and it’s still reverberating through popular music and influencing our U.K. artists left right and centre.”

By the time the follow-up ‘A Grand Don’t Come For Free’ emerged two years later, The Streets had become an international phenomenon. This time around, Mike Skinner constructed an album with an on-going narrative that was by turns hilarious, touching and energising. ‘Dry Your Eyes’ became The Streets’ first #1 single, while ‘Fit But You Know It’ and ‘Blinded By The Lights’ both hit the Top 10.

Pitchfork’s review concluded: “Skinner's anthropological humanism typically focuses on either the mundane or disappointing – and, let's face it, life is most often one or the other – but he does so with such endearing intimacy and bare honesty that it's easy to give yourself over to the album's narrative on first listen and, perhaps just as importantly, to want to revisit it over and over again.”
