Track B1 is f****n' sick!! So are the other great tracks on this EP. One of Bissmire's best releases.

What a glorious release! The A side has two banging techno cuts with crackbrained synth stabs, which know no boundaries and take no prisoners.
Think of early Inigo Kennedy and Anthony Child and you’ll get the picture. Screeching and high in pitch sounds to drive you mad give the tracks additional bonus points as they escape falling into the annoying trivial same bass line thrown over a boring 4x4 beat for five minutes aesthetic. Plus both tracks are followed by distorted leftfield/industrial locked grooves.
B1 slays the slightest chance of survival, absolutely killing it with the loudest, most demented, drum kick you could lay your ears upon back then, coupled with an unstoppable synth sequence mercilessly tearing the competition to shreds. Think of Dave Clarke’s Thunder or The Last Journey by The 65D Mavericks.
The last one keeps up with the insanely high intensity level, with its jarring, dominant surface noises, sounding like a fire truck’s horn losing grip on reality, and taking the passengers’ sanity with it for kicks.
Essential release for fans of the amazing mid-nineties UK hard techno sound. Malevolent, good, club friendly, ballsy true to form techno. You’re not gonna tell me you could possibly want anything else, are you?!?!
