How can anyone resist am album featuring Doug Wimbish, Skip McDonald, Adrian Sherwood, the On-U Sound collective and Al Jourgensen all working on dubbed out football terrace soundbites and broadcasts?

It may sound mad (it is) but it is also an absolutely unique classic in the annals of music. Whilst some of the tracks don't work there are many more that work very well. Delightful basslines mingle with half-heard chants in an almost tribal style, making this a weird counterpoint album to the likes of 'Songs of Praise' by African Head Charge. Dub connosieurs really should get a copy of this one ;)
