Five years ago this week the Streets released A Grand Don’t Come for Free, the follow-up to the critically acclaimed Original Pirate Material (2002). Adrien Begrand said back then “like Mike Leigh’s film High Hopes, like Pulp’s Different Class, A Grand Don’t Come For Free is a superb, perceptive portrait of everyday British life, completely devoid of any pretentiousness, and musically, though his beats are toned down, it cements Skinner’s status as a true original in UK music. The album spawned four singles, one of them (“Dry Your Eyes”) a #1 in the UK, and here are the videos.

 

“Fit But You Know It” (1 March 2004) - #4 UK

 

“Dry Your Eyes” (31 May 2004) - #1 UK

 

“Blinded by the Lights” (13 September 2004)

 

“Could Well Be In” (8 November 2004)
