Following on from the above comment, the Ffrreedom release of this track is totally reproduced, and sounds a lot cleaner than the original white label mix. Due to this, the white label mix is a bit more 'ardcore. It also contains a terrifying acidic track on the B-Side, sadly omitted from this release.

This track heavily samples the Roobarb and Custard theme from the 1970s kids' TV programme of the same name, but the vocal snippets are not original. Failing to obtain permission to land the original Richard Briers vox (eg "Roobarb's slim pianist claws danced quickly over the keys") they hired Richard Easter from the Radio 1 Steve Wright in the Afternoon gang to re-record them. However if you can track down the original white label version which came out before the FFRReedom version, you will find the same tune but with the unauthorised vocals from Briers still there...
