Oliver: S.L. Troopers - Systematic Terror (25 January 1992)
Before playing this track, Peel praised Kold Sweat Records for the quality of its output, which included Katch 22. This track from their label-mates, S.L Troopers promises great things as it starts of with a kickin' drum break and a sampled synth that combines the urban with the alien. However, its achillies heel proves to be the words which go off into a standard trashing of other MCs and their crews. Why disappointing? Well a title like Systematic Terror promises something more substantial than just killing other MCs, but apart from a throwaway line about police stop and search tactics and some self improvement advice, it ultimately doesn't even cut as deep as Sir Mix-a-Lot.
