|This video version of Vol. 5, which is almost identical to the CD version, offers the bonus of being able to visually experience the amazing dexterity of the legendary DJ crew prompting Jeff Chang to write in the Bay Guardian: "What really separates the Skratch Piklz from the ordinary is their invitingly idiosyncratic mix of hard-cored B-boy credentials, post-adolescent awkwardness, and goofy, cartoon/animal/alien/inamimate object cosmology." Meanwhile URB magazine wrote of this release: "Rare examples of turntable purity... an underground classic that's all about the Bay."
Also includes the matching CD:
Live turntable orchestration session starring the now-defunct Invisibl Skratch Piklz at their peak when the lineup was QBert, Disk, Apollo, Mixmaster Mike, Shortkut, Shiggar Fraggar, and emcee UB40. Recorded live in May 1996 at Hip Hop Slam in Oakland, CA as part of the Pirate Fuckin Radio series. "What's most amazing is that it was all done live. Pure brilliance!" is what PAPER magazine wrote of this release that was recorded live with absolutely no overdubs or studio trickery. Note that originally these sessions, which were 90 minute mix-tapes/radio shows, were both distributed by Hip Hop Slam to about a dozen pirate radio stations around the USA and by the Piklz as mix-tapes.
