  • Oh come on Mystery was the first ever female mc!
    They did sleepwalking.......way way ahead of its time
    and they were the only UK group to perform at uk fresh 86!

  • They were totally useless. Malcolm Maclaren, Newtrament, Paul Hardcastle, Broken Glass, all a lot lot better UK hip hop acts...

    ELECTROFUNK is a subsidiary of HIP HOP MUSIC AND CULTURE, don't you forget it suckaz...

    Dave Toop produced that track "Sleepwalking" which is probably why the record company let them put it on Electro 13; it's not that bad, a little "Mr C - e's are good!" but I wonder why they didn't come out with anything better after that as it seemed they should have gone a bit further off that springboard...

  • I have to disagree, FQ were dope. Their first twelve 'Outerspace Rap' from 84 is fiya - probably the best early UK rap record IMO - mystery's verse is butter! And, while i agree sleepwalking is a bit cheesy in places listening to it now, it was huge back then....

    .....and much as i have a lot of respect for the cookies, mystery was defo the first female emcee in LDN

  • I gotta agree with llangollen and koolski here

    the quest represented london hip hop and were regulars at jams and spats in the early 80's

    granted i don't think the singles were classics but its not all about the vinyl - they made a decent contribution

  • Im afraid its been awhile sine i posted on here as (llangollen) just catching up. Family Quest all fell out...again...so nothing came of it, just an interview in the now defunct hiphop connection

    There is something that reminds me slightly of Black-eyed Peas - an early model on which they could have been based - except Michelle didn' sing ;)
