An anthem, an underrated masterpiece. When I listen to 101 I understand why a world without music makes no sense.
Back in 1991 when I first heard this 7000 miles away from the One Little Indian Studios I didn't understand how people could make something so amazing.
This is the loneliest song in the world. Maybe it is because the production is rough, or it's slow, or it has a guitar. I don't know. Finitribe are unsung heroes. They are the Georg Cantor of music. 101 and Ace, love, deuce touched my soul like few tracks ever did.

As RobMo below points out, it is worth checking out that version from the Monster in the House EP. 101.93, which came out 2 years later.
But the real deal is Sonic Shuffle Edit. That's where it's at. I am glad I got to know this gem.

The Weatherall remixes really do put the STOMP into this quite tribal clarion call of a track. They lack some of the ingenuity of other Weatherall mixes of the same tempo found elsewhere (Innersphere leaps to mind), but they are all very useful. For my money I would go for the Massey remixes on the second 12 inch
NB: Its not unusual for a band to revisit a tune years later, often just to relaunch it back onto the market because an advert or movie has used it, not so for 101. On the B-side of a later release as Finitribe 'Monster in the House' , there sits a reinterpretation of 101. Its a piano led retelling of the tune over a subtle house arrangement. Well worth checking out
