Written & produced at The Punishment Farm, London.

A-side runout groove etchings:

Dialogue on track A is Michael Caine (pictured on label) from the 1969 heist movie The Italian Job:

"Finally, and very quickly, would like to introduce all the lads who are going to do the job with me. Arthur, Frank, Rozzer, Coco, Yellow, Camp Freddie you all know. Roger, Dave and Lorna will be in reserve with three fast cars in case anything goes wrong. Right? Now, it's a very difficult job and the only way to get through it is, we all work together as a team. And that means you do everything I say."

"Five, four, three, two, one. Go. You're only supposed to blow the bloody doors off!"

Dialogue on track AA outro is Michael McKean from the 1984 mockumentary movie This Is Spinal Tap:

"Well, I don't really think that the end can be assessed as of itself as being the end because what does the end feel like? It's like saying when you try to extrapolate the end of the universe, you say, if the universe is indeed infinite, then how - what does that mean? How far is all the way, and then if it stops, what's stopping it, and what's behind what's stopping it? So, what's the end, you know, is my question to you."

Agree with all these comments

Don't fear the music that comes out the speaker - Exceptional sample one of my faves of all time over thousands :) Well I think that is what is said if anyone would care to enlighten :)

A Right Bunch Of Charlies is a masterpiece - Easily mixed with because there is so much time between the peak and acid builder but that funky hard acid line DDR always has these in his repertoire - is so so fine - miss those 303 lines and that old Stay Up Forever vibe and pinnacling with Spinal Tap

Magnum Force in full effect - Do Ya Punk from the other 12" by them --- Ha

but still Blow the Bloody Doors Off and Michael Caine - come on another UK acid techno classic but Charlies beats this :)

Would like to see another Magnum Force release

The Magnum 44 holds six shots and only 4 bullet tracks have been released so 2 more are expected :)

Get your gear on :) It;s been nearly 15 years

Oldskool acid vibe alert

As much of a classic the A side is, the true gem on this release is the B side. Proper early 00s Dave The Drummer squat rocking stuff. 10/10 Rocking release

going from what gabbaguerilla said, listening to the B side there is alot of unlucky punk in that track too (3min 40 on the vid posted on discogs.) I must stress this is not a bad thing in my opinion at all. There isnt even much of a point in me typing this really just wanted to point it out. :)
If you like the london acid sound im guessing you will have both magnum force releases all ready.

One of the best post-millenium SUFs, and not just for the crazy A side - I always loved the rampant, brooding, relentless B side, more so than the A. As is often the case with SUFs the B side offered a proper headz down track that made the release for me, and this is one of the best examples (there are many others though!)

magnum force again with straight good work. hard acid techno, both tracks are fine. "blow the bloody doors off" reminds me of their classic hit "unlucky punk" similar beat, rhythm elements. also contains 1:30 without the beat, heating it up with really perverted freaky noisy 303 sounds combined with that long voice sample taken from a movie (forgot the name) really a kick-ass-track
