Bomb Scare is the tune that everyone knows here however Hold It Down is a much better tune

Bombscare's original title was "You Can Run". It was renamed after 2 Bad Mice got caught up in a bombscare after leaving a rave at the Astoria one night.

Waremouse features on the soundtrack of the film The Jackal.

A great little EP. All four tracks are solid, with 'Bombscare' being the big hit. But as others have mentioned the standout track is the spine-tingling 'Waremouse', whose stripped-down and sinister proto-jungle sound prefigures what was to come.

bombscare aint the weakest tune here,far from it these things are for dancing,its a groove.you have to know what to do with these sort of records, If youd have been there back in da days of old,youd know what damage it did on a,50k turbosound rig!.all in all a classic ep.listen to the bass go booom!!

Arguably the record that came from the anti-commercialism music scene & broke out into the commercial music scene. Bomb Scare was played literally everywhere you went along with Slipmatt & Limes Way In My Brain. I do agree with Ilya's comment but when you can't escape a tune it soon becomes annoying. However 20 years later I can now listen to it. Waremouse is "STILL" the track for me here.

It's no exaggeration that music can put a smile on your face like no other stimulous.

Just listening to this for the first time in a couple of years. Wonderful.

The record shown in the photo was DJ Rap's own personal copy that i was lucky enough to pick up from her 'sold off' collection some years ago. Bombscare was played in every club up and down the country for years and probably still is making it one of the biggest old skool anthems going.
If you dont own this make sure you pick up a cheaper release copy on sight, all 4 tracks are top bananna.
