A good, but not really classic Routemaster 12". I'd given this a spin earlier, and now I'm listening to ROUTE 10 while I write this, which is also not one of the best Routemasters, but I personally think it's better - yet that one sells for pennies!

Side A is OK, but not really that memorable, not to me at least.

Side AA is easily the better of the two, with an interesting acid line, raw production, and good use of the "Thunderbirds" samples. But, if I wanted to be critical, I could easily say that the Thunderbirds sampling was already done to death on early house/hip-hop crossover records way back in 1987-88 - but I'm in a good mood, so I won't hold that against the Routemaster crew, and I'll just put my misery down to my old age. heh. ;)

Unfortunately, this is another acid techno vinyl which seems to be selling for ludicrous prices - considering I recently picked up over a dozen Routemasters (including some REAL classics) for less than £5 each, it really makes me wonder what kind of people are into the acid techno scene these days - I'm not exactly poor, but if you think I'm willing or able to pay £50 for less than 20 minutes of music, you can f*** off! At that price, I'd want a 15 ips tape taken direct from the original reel-to-reel master!!

If ever there was a techno label which desperately needed represses, it's this one.

Wasn't there some other (non-acid) label which did a bunch of "anti-Ebay" represses? Well, Routemaster, SUF and possibly some of the more recent labels like Wah Wah and Avinit should do a "F*** DIscogs Capitalists" series of represses :)

2 great acid techno tracks !

The best dirt here is the "International Rescue" track which frequently uses vocal samples from Gerry Anderson's Thunderbirds and is a chugging monster which pulls you in with its dark 303 and pounding beats right to the end !

Check this mother out !
