Raw UK stuff. I reckon it's safe to say there was nothing else like this at the time, really jagged machine music... IF IT DON'T KICK THE FUNK..... IT AINT GOT THE FACKIN 'ORN! Having said that, I prefer the 'Rural Sex' EP's. Hornography LP is good too.

I would echo TheFormula's comments on this excellent EP. From IDM flavoured reworkings of chicago house through to the breath-taking epic ambience of the closing title track, this record delivers in fine style.

And the cockney english guys mentioned by TheFormula are Derek & Clive, the infamous foul mouthed comic creations of Peter Cook & Dudley Moore. The samples centre around, appropriately enough, having the horn !

I love this record, all five tracks are unique and different to one another, while being difficult to pigeonhole into a particular style. A minimal/old-school house vibe runs through this record, however the excellent "Villager" is an ambient cut reminiscent of video game theme music (think Legend of Zelda). "Whiddon On Down" has the same kind of feel, and is definately THE cut that makes this record the bomb! The track is funky machine music with great atmospherics, comparable to work of The Railway Raver and Ceephax Acid Crew. Also included on the record is a very funny skit between a group of cockney English guys - very very funny. Overall a wicked record that nobody should be without!
