    Mike Paradinas' record label follows its recent 'Children Of Mu' compilation with this budget priced showcase mix of the wild talent assembled on is roster. As fans of Paradinas' work will expect, there's off-the-wall brilliance, and absurdity, at every turn here. Amongst the 34 songs that Paradinas whisks through in 80 minutes, Venetian Snares' jazz-driven 'Whiskey Drunk' and bonkers 'Einstein-Horseshack Lids', Remarc's 'Bad Bwoy', Shitmat's hilarious 'There's No
