Scritti Politti is a British band, originally formed in 1977 in Leeds, Yorkshire, England, by the Welsh singer-songwriter Green Gartside. He is the only member of the band to have remained throughout the group's history.
Of course in 1979 the idea that a motley of squat-dwelling politicos like Scritti Politti might have a breakthrough single- let alone a three-decade career and a best of package like Absolute- would have been preposterous. The motor for this compilation, as its title and lopsided sequencing makes quite clear, is Scritti's string of singles from their Cupid and Psyche 85 album, produced by Arif Mardin. It's that Scritti principle again, break things up and they get more interesting. This is pop exploded, fractured and rebuilt as a mosaic where almost every beat seems to have a different sound from the one before. Hi-hats, triangles, drum pads of every kind flicker across the mix for a second or two then never reappear.
Scritti Politti-Absolute (Album). Absolute unites the core highlights of the career of Welsh wizard, Green Gartside. In the late 1970’s Green forged a pensive post punk origin and as a new decade arrived he morphed in to a successful and soulful pop star. The fame game is seemingly not for Green and he has stepped away from the limelight making ephemeral but always emphatic returns to action. An epic night at The Hay Festival in 2006 was a triumph-as is Absolute! Songs to Remember that are pure genius.

There is no easy and clean way to anthologize Scritti Politti. Within a couple years of surfacing, Green Gartside and his shifting array of associates switched from scrawny and inscrutable post-punk to pristine and R&B-laced sophisti-pop. After that, it gets a bit random, with post-punk era highlight Skank Bloc Bologna, three highlights from 1982’s Songs to Remember, the 1991 non-album single She’s a Woman (a Beatles cover, featuring Shabba Ranks), and two new burbling electro-pop numbers. It’s neither a straightforward singles comp nor a thorough collection of highlights, but it’s somewhere in between and makes for a representative introduction.
Peering through the obfuscation of more than twenty five years, it probably seems to the average Joe that the summer of 1985 belonged to the notion of rock music completing its catharsis from being just a symptom of teen rebellion to voice of a global conscience. Now working with drummer Fred Maher and er David Gamson, it combined the newly created technical backwash of samplers and the ent idea with an intelligent, romanticised take on modern soul inspired by Michael Jackson and a host of classic sixties back catalogue. The Word Girl in fact was the final thread of a chart-bothering triptych whose other constituents were Wood Beez (Pray Like Aretha Franklin) and Absolute, the modernist like of which left box office favourites such as Bruce Springsteen looking like production dinosaurs.
