First DVA song I heard (and the vinyl copy...) and was not impressed -I hated the mix, the lazy vocals and thought the beats were timid. It put me off the band for many years.

While I now love this era of DVA (and the parent album), I can't understand why this was selected as a single. The production and general ideas are so uninspiring compared to Newton's contemporaries at the time (young and old) that it still baffles me.

A so-so track from an astoundingly talented band and fertile period in electronic music.

B1 remains one of the most disturbing & creepy bits of audio in my collection, marooned unfairly in amongst dancified industrial tunes instead of where it should be on some power electronics tape.
