Though obviously hip to some dharma, the Spooks haven't exactly renounced rancor like Sade and Rachelle. This urban rap crew are the wrathful deities of spiritual evolution. S.I.O.S.O.S.is peppered with harrowing tales of their being battered for almost seven years by the hostile dupes of indifferent record companies—and they're still keeping score. It's no accident that Ming Xia, the fiery dakini of this little collective, sings a tune called "Sweet Revenge." Guardians of the true faith, the Spooks have infiltrated our degenerate music scene to destroy all delusions of glamour. Like most self-styled revolutionaries, their stated agenda "to set your mind free/fucking up the industry" is dichotomous. But one can easily imagine the Spooks picking up Bob Marley's torch to burn and loot Babylon before building afresh upon the smoking ruins.
