Her vision is rounded-out by a handful of collaborators. The lurching pseudo-gangster-rap of Caution and Truth Bomb – a cut dedicated to Atlanta civil rights icon John Lewis and “The Notorious RBG” Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg – is enlivened by the inspired turntable scratching of GrandMixer GMS, while Lazarus Blackstar vocalist Paul Catten lends his pipes to the aforementioned World Destruction. Most notably, Tairrie’s husband and My Ruin co-conspirator Mick Murphy layers on the drums, bass and guitar as well as mixing and engineering a gloriously retrofied sound throughout.
Crucially, though, Tairrie herself is never not front-and-centre. And, by the time we get to the closing MM ResistMix 2020 re-imagining of her own 2019 banger I’m A Woman (dedicated to the "reSISTERS” and crusaders for female empowerment), it’s impossible not to feel the same indignation and defiance that’s driven the irrepressible firebrand this far. A Feminenergy that anyone can feel.
