"Good Time Girl" is a magnificient, ultra sharp deadpan sardonic joke of a song, the (pop) musical equivalent of a killer witty dig addressed to wannabe girls of the kind that used to be named 'jockey sluts' and more generally to the self-important 'DJ culture' of the late 1990s. And as with the best humour, a good part of it is in the way of interpreting it (Ed Upton's voice sounds like a razorsharp version of Phil Oakey's), and of course it includes self mockery ("And don't you leave me your number girl/Just because you smell success"). Formally, on a sound production and songwriting level, it's clearly up there with the greatest synthpop songs it pastiches (and thus confirms DMX Krew's true, understated and underrated pop genius - but that's another story entirely that would deserve a whole book).
Together with Cylob's hilarious record titles ("Cylob' Latest Effort", "Previously Unavailable On Compact-Disc"...), and the label's general sharp and witty aesthetic (Richard James and Grant Wilson-Claridge's malicious brains might be no strangers to that either), it confirms Rephlex as a stable representing a post-rave, grinding modernized version of the english wit the most fittingly imo.
And if you add the fact that the shaped vinyl, when played on the image side, looks like a dog's head turning round, one can admit that what we have here is a perfect, twisted pop artifact.
