REVIEW / If you want to get ahead: Jamiroquai are this week's No 1. A true soul sensation or Shakatak with a hat? Phil Johnson watched them in Bristol
Thursday 24 June 1993
'DON'T get so excited girls; I know it's big, but calm yourselves down.' Could singer Jay - who recently took his kit off for the cover of The Face - be talking about his hat? It's certainly a whopper, a huge fur job whose shadow all but obscures his elfin features. Indeed, the crush of female admirers at the front of the stage were lucky to see him at all.
ROCK / It's the rapping not the contents: MC Solaar performs in French, but still pulls a crowd in London. Joseph Gallivan undergoes speech therapy
Thursday 21 January 1993
THE GREAT strength of rap has always been its ability to carry a 'message', untrammelled by the demands of melody and, to a lesser extent, rhythm. Speech sets the pace for drum and bass combinations, and while samples of other tunes carry additional colour, a well-crafted lyric, rather than the rhythm section, is always more likely to make you dance. (Witness the verbal dexterity of De La Soul's 'Magic Number' or Da Lench Mob's 'Freedom's Got An AK'.)

THE ethnic-style wall-hangings of the Jazz Cafe are augmented in cornball country style for the British debut of Tennessee's Arrested Development. Apart from a drum-kit, three or four mikes and a record deck gaffer-taped to a table-top, the only stage gear appears to be a tastefully arranged selection of cotton bales and sacks marked 'coffee' and 'sugar', a few rustic farm signs, and two lines of washing strung across the stage.
