All stars taking over. This was one of those indie-dance crossover type things that dare whisper it *transcends boundaries*. A marketing nightmare and just that little bit too out there for the mainstream. A record to put on and remember how a group got away with calling themselves Wrekked Train and Albino Priest. It's like a band of ecstacy taking football hooligans making music during Euro 1996 after being up for two days drinking Stella but the curtains are open and their influences range from Kraftwerk to Miles Davis. Pigeon hole at your worst box thinker, for a brief time the Allstars took over a little part of my amorphous brain. One to cherish.

This was the first record I got a sleevenote credit on. Using my award winning model making skills (1st place, North Kent Model Exhibition 1986) I built one of the model trucks featured on the front cover. Can we get a Model Maker role in the credit list please? :)

Yeah, I think the only reason the Lo-Fi's were put in with the big beat thing was because they were on Skint, which I suppose is understandable seeing as they were the definitive big beat label. Thing is, they never had much in common with the likes of Fatboy Slim or Cut La Roc apart from the obvious hip hop influences. This album confirms that with a hugh range of moods and styles from the bombastic opener 'Warming Up The Brainfarm', the electro funk of 'Battle Flag' and the claustrophobic title track to name a few. An unheralded gem!

This is not one of those boring cliché bigbeat releases! Tracks range from filthy, heavy, sleazy P-funk (Will I Get Out Of Jail) to stomping filtered vocoderdisco (Lazer Sheep Dip Funk)and even a goosepimpling beautiful Hammond-driven loungy yet pitchdark ballad (Nightime Story)...This one definitely survived the hype!
