Originally released in 2002, Original Pirate Material remains one of the most influential albums of its generation, and bridged the gap between UK garage and grime. Featuring the breakthrough hit Has It Come To This and era-defining anthems such as Weak Become Heroes and Let’s Push Things Forward, it made Skinner a spokesman for a generation. The day in a life of a 21 year old working class wideboy from Birmingham, now living in Brixton. A unique brand of pull no punches, street level commentary.
