Based in Kingswood, Bristol, Avon, England, rap group the Transcription Carriers were initially inspired by early UK rap artists such as Derek B and Overlord X. Led by MCs Mister Deed, Kant Control and Reborn, alongside DJ Beanz, the group convened as part of the time-honoured hip-hop tradition of collective breakdancing and graffiti activities. In 1990 they decided to launch a rap group, taking the name Transcription Carriers after one member’s former occupation. Their first recording was issued in 1992, a 12-inch white label released via the auspices of the T-Cut Bristol sound system and BRC (the Bristol Rhyme Coalition). It was not until 1994, however, that they began to earn significant coverage for their The Haemorrhoid Fry-Up EP.
