The first EP, titled Bong Bong, is a foray into the world of digital reggae. The much requested title-track takes Sister Nancy's Bam Bam bang up to date in a smoky fashion. Soom's singing abilities shine through in the ultra modern 31st Century Song. I Need Weed and Boom Shiva are familiar tales about the good ol' chronic which appeared on Jahtari's Ode to a Carrot . These versions are from a much earlier recording session, and have a different edge.
The Listening Bug EP is a different kettle of fish, showcasing the Mungo's Hi Fi sound that does not fit straight into the reggae mould; featuring more electronic, bass heavy excursions. The edgy Listening Bug is a LFO bass-driven flurry with minimal meandering melodies. Jump Up Quickly is full of eastern mystique before cutting to a hard hitting rap style mixed in with Eek A Mouse. Run Fool is dark, jittery and hard. War Song has a sound that would not be out of place as the next James Bond theme tune.
