While the video itself says the track is "Northern Boy", the YT title and info elsewhere say the track's name is "Party Time". 🤷🏻

This is surprisingly good - dark, funny, with genuinely good flow.

I gotta go, I gotta take a number three
That's a piss and a shit and a wank in a tree


There's a genre of aspirational rap, all about designer clothes, fancy cars and jewellery. Fuck that, this is what I aspire to when I'm older.

Number three is the best lyric - it sets up a tension with the first line (what the fuck is a number three) and then resolves it wonderfully.

My second favorite line is:
Bald, mean and full of beans
I've got a Yamaha keyboard drum machine

Which is a great mission statement lyric right there.

After a slight bit of poking around I may be about to fall down a Norman Pain rabbit hole.

From the same people who brought you Pete and Bas!

And featuring Patrick Karneigh Jr, who created one of the wildest EPs I've heard, about his twin brother who died.
