"I think students don’t realize that,”
Hampton said.

Coarse lyrics blasting over a rock solid musical epicenter, guitars
that run from hard core machine gun spray to metallic squall
and beyond, all grinding into the groove of the drums and bass.
Think Cypress Hill and House Of Pain meet Helmet on a full
metal stomp. Primer 55 address all that and more with a sound
that unites the intensity of minor threat, the street level passion
of true hip hop and unmistakable metal thunder.

a simmering sensuality that lies at the core of each song. Their
music possesses all of the qualities found on any great record:
killer melodies, irresistible hooks, passionate performances,

has anyone made such a concerted effort to create music that
works as well in a horizontal position as it does in a vertical one.

"After two wonderful albums with his cheekily named band the
Negro Problem, the brother from another planet (LA., actually)
delivers a solo debut brimming with wry, joyously tuneful pop
gems. Shall we call this talented oddball the black Burt
Bacharach? The inner-city Brian Wilson? The bastard offspring
of Arthur Lee and Phoebe Snow? Let's- and hope someone's
listening. (A)"
