BIOGRAPHY

Real Name: Lee Groves & Pete Marett

Their debut album "Last Orders…Start The Revolution" scheduled for release on the 26.10.98 has seen Terminalhead come of age. From the dancefloor shattering breakbeats of "Cause And Effect" through to the lyrical triple salco that is "Weekend Warriors" Terminalhead have underpinned the promise that has been shown by their first four releases. An album that is sure to strike a chord with all those who have lived the chemical lifestyle and leave others wondering why such a lifestyle is required, when music such as this induces chemical reactions all of it's own.

One of 2003's most respected breakbeat crews has to be Terminalhead, always featured in top 10 breakbeat charts in most magazines and hardly leaving the charts of many respected breaks DJ's. So when they release their album, it's just got to be one of the best breaks albums of 2003 right?

A potent mixture of nu-skool breaks, hip hop and ragga, Terminalhead explore the harder and darker side of breakbeat music and produced a rock-induced electronica piece, How Does It Feel in the vein of The Prodigy - who they are contantly compared to, thanks to Terminalheads energetic live shows.

For the nu-skool breaks heads out there, Weekend Warriors features their now-anthemic cuts such as the sinister ragga skank of What Time Is It? - which they wrote in a week for the first Bedrock Breaks compilation, Mind Of Your Own which appears in it's 3 minute original form, and finally Beats, Rhymes, Flavour - crisp breaks, scratches and ragga MC vocals - one of the definite floor fillers. But of course, they'd include more such as the Crystal Method sounding Breaking Rules and the title track - a dark and moody effort featuring Spee's commentary towards the everyday 9 to 5ers who get trashed on the weekend and eventually come down and repeat their routine the following Monday.

What's surprising to hear on the album, especially after their uptempo nu-skool breaks singles, are the downtempo tunes, which offer a pleasant variation to what could have been a straight-up 130bpm nu-skool breaks album. P.Y.O. is Spee's story about the repeat offenders always in lockup and Poison is about racism. This is the stuff he also deals with on his work with Red Star but more downtempo. Finally, Terminalhead attacks the dance music business on the finale, The Scene of which the lyrics can be read inside the album cover

For what it's worth, Weekend Warriors is a pretty dope album, featuring their dancefloor classics, their energetic live sets and their downtempo headnodding tunes, fans of their sound should easily get into this.
