Rebel ACA & French Monkey Wrench

Sunday's Cool

Buttercuts Records

Released: 22nd June 2018 | 13 track alternative rap/hip-hop album

REBEL ACA & FRENCH MONKEY WRENCH
Sunday's Cool.

Well it is - isn'tit..

Till about 8pm when it starts to get depressing again.

And so - Buttercuts proudly presents a bizarre and beautiful look at life in London from the eyes of an Englishman and ears of a Frenchman.

This is their first album as a pure duo and sees a delectable pairing of French deep vintage sound with the English articulation of the Rebel - something you would not have heard before.

Tracks meander down different emotional avenues - from micro observations of the strange details of London's daily life (Jolly Little Tune)….

To tongue-twisting lists of every brand that burns our eyes in the modern digital experience (John Wayne)…

To tales of an evening on the pull turning into the a night in the cells (GoldStar)…

To the dark dark undergrowth of Marble. A tune about a prostitute living on the very edge of existence.

BIOG

Rebel ACA and French met nearly 15 years ago, as one managed, and the other produced a funk reggae band. And ever since - their completely opposite nature in almost every way - has kept them attracted, like a nut and ratchet.

They're real life childhood nicknames happen to be The Bear, and The Wolf. No-one knows or tends to question why, as it would make sense if you met them - but yeah. We don't know which one is which either.

Rebel ACA (The ACA stands for - Anti-clockwise Attitude… ) when in full (arm) swing - can break anything, andFrenchmeanwhile is an absolutely inspired fixer- sometimes with his monkey wrench.

French who sleeps under a harpsichord in his tiny flat with him and his daughter, and the Rebel who never wants to go to sleep - like a young petulant child.

And it would seem that they need each other - as apart from the fact you wouldn't have this album - the Rebel would have no-one to fix his shit. And French would have not enough to do and would start fixing what wasn't broke. And we all know how that's not supposed to be a good idea - at all.

Sunday's Cool. Monday isn't.


Hip Hop, not from the streets, but from the park

If you live among wolves. You have to act like a bear.
