This is what I had to say about it in 2000: Composed almost entirely from Tangerine Dream samples (from Poland, Force Majeure, and the Wavelength soundtrack, if you're trainspotting) backed by a TR-909, and partly inspired by Alan Parker’s thriller Angel Heart, the 1994 trance techno single "Johnny Favourite" was David Holmes' first release under his own name ... although it was actually a collaboration between Holmes and Sabres of Paradise members Jagz Kooner and Gary Burns.

David Holmes debut single, _Johnny Favourite_, comes on no less than Warp, and though it seems to come from the time when progressive house ruled the land, it shows Holmes’ talent for rhythmic propulsion. The “Exploding Plastic Inevitable Mix” grounds the beat with what sounds like guitar strumming, then, halfway through, jumping into the atmosphere with an angelic vocal, and, at the 2/3s point, an ambient break. The “Exploding Plastic Ambience Mix” starts at the halfway point (without the beats, of course) and introduces small dribs of rhythm and the filtered guitar line.
