Scratching and sampling madness from Fingathing on their debut, THE MAIN EVENT. And despite the pugilistic title, what the album really wants to do is get down. You can hear it from the wobbly "Check It Out" to the easygoing sleaze of "Come On Girls." But it's the instrumentation that stands out: the big monsters of "Big Monsters Crush Cities" are an awesome string section that just builds and builds; the twinkling of "How to Smoke"; the laconic guitar lesson of "Just Practice"; the toe-tapping rhythm, bass and strings of "You Fly Me." Veba offers her considerable vocals to the spooky and soulful "Slippin," and the percussion goes crazed on "Ffling." "The Final Bout" brings back the strings for a last throb, and even if they're not monster-sized, they still rock. Indeed, the album scores a TKO.
