Stone cold classic, groundbreaking tune that still sounds superb today. Captures that mutating momet when breakbeat/rave was on the edge of becoming jungle.

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!!
