Should I Stay or Should I Blow
“Should I Stay or Should I Blow”, whose guest is house producer Ashley Beedle. It isn’t a variation on the Clash’s “Should I Stay or Should I Go” (or Thee Stash’s “Should I Suck or Should I Blow”); instead, it’s a twitchy ska laced romp with electronic whines – a spy-surf guitar sample (or quasi-sample) serves as intro and bridge, while a wobbling Jamaican organ underscores the refrain and a faux shortwave-radio solo. Hooky melody features reggae-jazz pixels highlighted with techno-infused squiggles, alternating Latin and ska grooves. The chorus is lifted from a nonexistent Jimmy Cliff record.
