This screams novelty album: Brighton’s weirdest beatboxer, Darren Foreman aka Beardyman, makes a 20-track album with looped beats and character impressions. Interspersed between instrumentals showcasing his crazed glitch-techno, dubstep and break beat making skillz, are skits and odd bits that will either irritate or cause a titter.
Text Christopher Ujine Ong
Pity about the lost musical ideas, ‘cos, yeah, Beardyman may have done an album, but whether for music or comedy’s sake, no one really knows or gives a “shave”.
LISTEN TO: ‘Vampire Skank’
