Bagman is the first side project of Lee Frasier, best known for the haphazard electronic mayhem of Sheep on Drugs. This time around he has decided to drop the Acid House influences for more straight forward Drum'n'Bass. Lee also enlists the aid of someone named Thigahmahjiggee who handles all of the sparse vocal work on this seven track debut album "Wrap". While the music isn't your typical regurgitated Drum'n'Bass percussion, most of the album it a bit repetitive. My key complaint with the whole Drum'n'Bass movement is that most bands choise sampled percussion that is limited at best and Bagman is no exception. It is really hard to get into the music when the entire song loops the same breakbeat from the previous track. While Bagman is slightly more innovative in it's use of timing changes and rapid speed swings, it is still more suited for a live setting than a studio medium.

Bagman is: Lee Frasier & Thigahmahjiggee
