Credit To The Nation were a British hip-hop group that had become pretty popular on the Indie scene – especially since their 1993 single “Call It What You Want” which sampled Nirvana’s “Smells Like Teen Spirit”. Other tracks followed, including the brilliant “Enough Is Enough” which they did with long time associates and friends Chumbawamba.
Having them play the Feet First Indie night at Camden Palace was a fantastic opportunity to finally see them – and also get back to Feet First for the first time since the previous Christmas. There was quite a crowd, probably due to a combination of Credit To The Nation playing as well as it being Easter holidays for schools and colleges, which always meant the Tuesday night club was busier.
Credit To The Nation were excellent live. They had a real energy and their blend of indie-tinged, left-wing/anarchic and socially conscious hip-hop went down a treat with the crowd. Loved them.
