Can't add much to the reviews but I do remember when these were released (most all at the same time, iirc) that the guy selling them was indeed bearded :) Whether he was an Acid Warrior of Peace is open to debate, but I suspect so :)

Quality label that popped up out of nowhere then disappeared just as quickly. Gutted I sold my copy of this one... desperate times call for desperate measures.

Sorry, neurodynamo; I completely agree with many of your reviews, but I can't fault this one at all.

Side A is just the kind of hard, wild, angry acid I love, and wish there was more of. That's not to say that "typical" acid techno is less inspiring - far from it - but this one takes it to another level. I don't think the vocal sample even adds that much to an already brilliant track, but I'm still glad it's there (haha). I wouldn't be at all surprised if Lawrie Immersion had copped an earful of this one before making "Stay Hard - Stay Up Forever", as that one has a similar feel, but with an even harder kick drum!

The B-side is still pretty hard, but has more melody than Side A, and features some nice and varied 303 and synth lines, which even have a slight Goa/Psy influence hidden in the mix. I can't remember ever hearing this one anywhere, but it would have fitted right in at nights which mixed hard trance/hard NRG/acid techno/Goa sounds (like Escape From Samsara, Pendragon and Trancentral) and could even have fitted into a set at one of the harder psy/Goa events, like Astral Phoenix.

To me, this is a faultless release, so this review goes all the way up to 11 (or it would if Discogs would allow it, lol) :-)

Can't understand the consistant high prices for this there are better BWOAP tracks - probably only because of the wicked break and very silly sample - as Nickacid mentioned on Fuck You - It is a good track

The B-side is disappointing

I would like to hear a fresh take on this maybe a re-release/press and some remixes of Fuck You.

Don't like acid , fuck off - is one of the best samples ever in acid techno though makes me smile everytime I listen to it when I need it :)

Still beats all the new acid shit sorry - Pete - please contact me - nothing like the old stuff

The sample from 'fuck you' just about says it all.. 'if you don't like acid... you can fuck off!' Brilliant release on this label, 'fuck you' is a hard as nails acid track, a fierce kick drum and skank's trademark 303 abuse. For me though 'the addicts are drug smugglers' is where it's at. More cheeky and swirly but still pure hard acid; complete sonic chaos, the tune is amazingly produced (as with all Skank's tunes) manic percussion, spot-on kick drums and beautiful 303 action, with perhaps the best drop in ANY tune.
'The addicts..' builds with layer upon layer of 303's. cheeky & irrestibly danceable the tune builds and builds until the sample drops, and before you know it a distorted, deep 303 leaps out the speaker - if you've ever heard this through a soundsystem and seen the reaction, it's unreal: complete dancefloor devastation!!
My absolute favourite acid techno tune, one that never fails to get people leaning over the decks ('what is THIS?')
