Pot Full O' Gold

This Is CBS


This is one of the illest from the classic Shape Shifters era, 1998.  Featuring the folks from the Shifter exended fam (English League, Of Mexican Descent, Chain Smokers, Ex Vandalz), as well as Kut Master Kurt, this 12" must have been a great intro to the Shape Shifter universe.  The wacked-out Circus-driven vibe present in the version of "Swollen Brain Fish" found here only, as well as the distinct styles of the satellite groups, set a nice shot of the many sides of the Shifter camp.  "Pot Full O' Gold" is here in an exclusive version as well, and it's one of the best tracks the 'Shifters ever produced, as it depicts them at their arguable apex.  Besides The tracks on the A-side, the flip has "Strange Birds" (same version as on the Adopted By Aliens album) plus instrumentals of "Triple Threat" and "Strange Birds".  "Rob One Mixtape Anthem" rounds out the set.  If you know me, you know I loves me some Shape Shifters.  Check it out!
