The debut album from rapper and graffiti artist Kid Acne is a short, sharp shock to the lug-holes: 11 tracks laced with influences from punk, various eras of hip hop, OI! and old-school British rave with beats programmed by Req and pumped up by Ross Orton (producer of M.I.A.'s hit single, Galang) mastered by acid-house and bass music legend Rob Gordon.
Romance Ain't Dead is the realization of South Yorkshire Tourist Board's worst nightmare and one the funniest, yet slickest albums on Lex.
