Paperclip People ‎– Throw

Planet E ‎– pepcp 1
Vinyl, 12", 33 ⅓ RPM



Mastered at Metropolis Mastering, Chicago. First pressings on clear, orange, red, green & blue coloured transparent vinyl.

The catalog# "pepcp 1" printed on the labels is wrong. That was a mistake, this was the second Paperclip People release on Planet E. The correct cat# "PEPCP 2" is scratched into the run-out groove.

"Throw" sample (bass guitar) from Loleatta Holloway Hit and Run .

One question: Ok, pretty sure this is Loleatta Holloway on the vocals, starting in the last third of the track. But which acapella or track is this from? And why was it removed from later versions?

In the years following after the release of 'Throw', its interpretation has changed in accordance with the times. The mid 90's was definitely not about instant hits, more about building, patience, and the reward for those who get it. The reason why it is such a long record is simple- thats how long the piece takes to develop & tell its story. There really was nothing like this & nothing could describe the atmosphere when it took over. It made perfect sense at the time. The track is built around a short percussion loop borrowed from Loleatta Holloway's 'Hit And Run', with Carl on (hilarious) vocal duty in the guise of a Diva shaking up the ladies on their self worth. Genius. The snares, simple groove changes & that bassline drove the crowd mad, & it simply put the icing on the cake at that point in time. One intelligent, beast of a record. How it comes across to anyone who wasn't around back then, I can't comment on, but for those who were, this was nothing short of biblical, and at a time when I believe the art of dance was all about patience.
