So forget the was the title that caught me. Before I even read the story, I started sniggering. I just pictured an influx of little rabied clones of Grime's wonderboy ChipMunk, rapping Who Are You (not any of the last few singles, they are too tame - a diseased, crazy ChipMunk is more likely to recite more 'aggy lyrics than radio friendly Diamond Rings) while eating fried chicken while making synchronized, Thriller-meets-funky-skank movements.

The power of music, ey? Instantly I thought of ChipMunk rather than an actual...chipmunk (I didn't even think of Alvin and his boys!) Or perhaps my imagination is a little off-kilter and I should stop staying awake past midnight, but anywho. Diamond Rings is in stores now and Soul Culture did a lovely interview with him recently - check it out.
