GTO aka Lee Newman and Michael Wells are doubtless one of the big heros of the early rave scene.
The tracks are sometimes very energetic and have mostly their special GTO handwriting.
What for me (only in my opinion!) sometimes in the years while listening to their great basses
was a problem, that they transported antichrist messages maybe to sell more or just for their personal opinion.
Especially those tracks were very powerful (Who Is Jesus, Devil Beats (Dance With The Devil Mix) and others) and
sounded good and the artwork was done with a love for details and quality.
Although I am an old druggy E-head by myself and raver since the very beginning,
I have a bad feeling because God or Love is positive, I feel it from the deepest grounds.
There is no Church Of Ecstacy, its a System which (can)destroy lifes. Maybe you might think
I am nuts (and I think many of you think so) but sometimes I think perhaps that artists like Lee
or Riccardo Testoni aka DJ Ricci(Satanica Compilations) paid a price for their carefree handling
of messages which supports and advertise a total hedonistic way of life.
My experience of 20 years in exactly this scene is that I don't know one single case where a raver
who tries to lives everyday in a 'Church Of Ecstacy' took a good end.
Yes, we don't want borders, rules and all this.. ..but first comes the ones who love you, the friends
and all this, after this the party and pill(s), and related things;D.
Drugs are your friend 50% of the time of the trip.
The other 50% we all pay back.
To come to an end: I am sad that Lee and for example Testoni don't live on, we lost unique music art, coming from their hands.
I have nearly all releases and I don't regret. Also this lp-cd is high quality: power, only
can be composed by Newman and Wells. R.I.P., Lee. And thank you for the sound...

Always danced/jumped on their tunes, but i never bothered myself to buy their releases at that time. Now, nostalgia s slipping in, bringing back the memories from those dayz. Like this record : i can't say 'no' to the tunes created by Lee Newman and Michael Wells. This album pulls you to the dancefloor for a crazy (mindless) bodydanceshake trip , going from one sexy acid groove to the other, giving you the energy to move on & on, non-stop. Resistance is futile. Recommended classic album to all party people.
