Uhh yeah, this was such a dj rekurd back in 92 ... The track that sold this 12" was the B2 "Rum & Black Remix" ... Big with all club dj´s at the time !! ... Remember going to London (from Sweden) just to buy rekurds, and this was everywhere :) ... // Tommy

808 state played The Green Man a lot on the 808 state show, sunset 102fm Tuesday Nights. Tis a tune full of samples. when it first entered the Eastern Bloc charts, it sold out within half a day. Not bad for a tune named after a crack dealing pub lol.

Sunset 102's Sami B dedicated Green Man to his mam - and it was a wise choice. Mad hardcore sounds and classical violin breakdowns. Fell in love with this tune at first listen.

From purchasing this in Mansfield, Notts as a clueless tearaway youth hooked on breakbeat, I found myself 15 years later living on the next street down from 'The Green Man' In Dalston. Now having long been renamed 'The Shacklewell arms', and going through some major changes a couple of years back (along with the whole area), it is now full of dandy ra- raa's & cool kids. Long live S.U.A.D

The Green Man is where,
the Crackhead gets his Crack,
Dont you know that?
Listen to the lyrics of the track,
You will learn some interesting fact!!!!

d1111s on the Mic, yyyeeeeaaahhh ))))

Seriously tho Autobiography Of A Crackhead is second best as far as Ravin to it goes but the lyrics have a bit of Hackney History in them, Sandringham Road frontline is mentioned )), houses sell for nice money round there nowadays. )

The story of the Crackhead would have hopefully detered many from this desparate life!

Forget about Autobiography of a Crackhead, whilst its okay its nothing compared to the raw edged breakbeat rave madness on the flip side. The Green Man was a favorite of Carl Cox's and many other 'big name' DJ's for many months. Highly recommended.
