We keep getting reminded that we haven’t been keeping people uptodate on our shit. Sorry people but life is busy as a busy beaver at A.M.H.Q. so things get missed. Once we get 5 this will all be covered properly When we get a minute the site is gonna get a revamp so hold tight for that but in the meantime… these are the headlines – We’ve just completed the successful ‘People, Poetry & Pussy’ Mini Tour of Ireland. (shouts to the legendary 2 Johns for that one – we can’t wait to come back!!!)

Willo Wispa & Ralph Rip Shit featured on the Feb Cover CD for HHC as the best up and comers in the country. Ralph also had a funny interview up in there so peep it whilst you can.

Paul B‘s brand new mixtape is here… SNEAKERFREAXXX – it’s dope. Run to the store to grab it.

Filming for Mudmowth this month for a half of a show on HTV dedicated to the beast that is Mud. Talking of Mud his press shots for his forthcoming 12″ and album are complete – prepare for the horror…

Beatbox Fozzy is going from strength to strength and has just finished putting together a radio advert for FAST CAR MAGAZINE. Fozzy is also due to perform at the International Beatbox Convention @ the Southbank Centre in London on March 20th – reach that if you can…

Ruffstylz, Mud and Ralph are also featured on the soon to come ‘Metaphysical’ CD from Metabeats that we are gonna help get out and about. What we’ve heard so far is flames. It features some of the heavyweights in the scene right now. Keep your eyes on the store for more updates on that one…

Fozzy and Ruffstylz just performed at Speaker Corner in Brixton and brought them the next level in how a beatboxer and emcee really can mix and blend to push things forward and display skills whilst bring it HARD.

Barnie Rumble headed off to Oz to let them know where it’s at. At the same time P.L.O. arrived back from the states – equipped with some serious equipment and intent to make his name as the best mix engineer in the U.K. Be warned…

Look we’re busy busy right now concentrating on the music and that’s why it’s taken us about 5 months to get these few pics from the January gigs to get up on here. We’ll say it loud, we’re slack and we’re proud.

Up close and personal with one of Britains best spitters.

The Legendary 2 Johns of Kerrynini fame. Rocking the roof off in Tralee.

Paul B racking up two fine cuppas in the best hotel we’ve been graced with to date while on tour. The George Boutique Hotel, Limerick get’s love.

Bizzle dropping the heavy… SHIT!

Ruff & Fozzy running...

The run of shows continues and damn we’re murderring it tooooo hard. Ruffstylz & Beatbox Fozzy now have a show that needs to be seen to be believed. It’s next level. I’m not just saying it – it’s truly like nothing else out there…?

Like wise Fozzy, Paul B, Ralph and Mudmowth are bringing more rowdy party style to stages relentlessly. Last night it was the turn of Sonic Relief in Cardiff to witness them bring it. Serious shouts to the crowd and the promoters for helping make it a good one.

Next gig is Cargo in London on the 20th of this month so make sure you make it out if you’re round those ways – ridculous live hip-hop don’t come around that often.

Say this word…FOZZY…learn this…he’s a beatbox legend in the making – he’s only 17 and has more talent in him than most get in a life time. He’s just started joining us at live shows and is absolutely killing it dead!!! Remember the damn name… There’s gonna be a lot more coming.

Aside from the gigs going down well – big up all those who’ve caught them – we are gonna be jumping back on the recording tip shortly – Ralph & Mud are not just hard at work on the solo tip but along with producer Sam Rockwell gonna be working on an EP together under the crew name of ‘Monsters Ink’. The shit should be heavy as elephant weights.

Plus Ruff is looking at closure on his ‘Lyrics’ CD shortly so beware the murmurs…it’s only the start of the beginning for him but people are gonna know.

Bizzle is also cracking on his Sneaka Freex mixtape that is gonna bring some heat to the street plus so Mud with a little extra lyrical side serving for those who can’t get enough on his Friendly Fire Mixtape!!!! Holla at the scholar for any further info people – mayor@associatedminds.com – always happy to help!

Big up all HSG and Blak Twang for last Friday as well – heavy gig people – big up Brotherz Grimm for doing the whole thing and here’s to this Friday – come catch MUDMOWTH @ ABRI at the TOUCAN again as we hit the stage to party!!!

We just got back from the BBC studios and damn that was good.

Mud, Ralph with Paul B on the decks just caned the session live up on the Bethan & Huw show on Radio 1.
Peep the link http://www.bbc.co.uk/radio1/alt/wales/ for further run down of what they themselves are calling one of the best sessions of the year so far. Thing is, it’s February so what’s that mean! Hell it could be December and they’d still be saying that shit. Seriously, take the ‘listen back’ option and hear Mud cane it with ease. Plus hear about the exlusive gig we got coming up in Cairo. (That’s some exclusive ish right there!)
