Kermit Leveridge was an original British B-boy, a Ruthless Rap Assassin whose rhymes were hailed by Roots Manuva as the “the roots of grime.” A subsequent founder member of Black Grape, alongside ex-Happy Monday frontman Shaun Ryder, Kermit scored a Number One album in the UK charts.

After touring the world to critical acclaim, smoking crack with gang bangers in Compton and crossing the near-fatal abyss of heroin addiction, Kermit now returns as a poet with lyrical wit that’s as distinct and impressive as ever.

When hedonism took him to the brink of selfdestruction, writing music kept Kermit going through his introspective recovery and when he was finally fit enough to return he had amassed a wealth of material aching to break out of his countless notepads.

This centred approach to shedding negativity shines through the lyrics in Blind Arcade’s ‘Give It Away’, brought to life by the commanding voice of London-based songstress BB James and delicately supplemented by The Reynolds.
