Police & thieves, cops 'n' robbers, good guys & bad guys - the staple diet of US/UK celluloid mythology from Pinewood to Hollywood. An uncouth rampage through some organised crime inspired Funk jams with a little help from some of the usual suspects - Chas (Performance), Carlin 'The Daddy' (Scum), Inspector Regan (The Sweeney), Mr Blue (The Taking Of Pelham 123), Harold Shand (The Long Good Friday), 'Dirty' Harry Callahan (Dirty Harry, Magnum Force etc) & Mr MotherHubbard himself, the legendary Joe Pesci...
Twentieth Century funky Mod groove tunes; crime infested indulgence for sharp dressed retro recidivists...
