New entry on the NME's Indie 45s chart, 7 October 1995.

Pretty much everything has been said here. Just in case you are wondering, the difference between MOK 37 and MOK 37 ½ is the first track. On the MOK 37 we have the Zippy Mix while on the ½ version we can hear the Original Mix (the one from MOK 32). Also Speedfreak and the famous Flamman & Abraxas Mix changed positions on the B-Side.

Special mention gets the Speedfreak Mix, I like his approach of creating new darker harmonies to the main melody in the second half of the song.

Originally written by David Peel, this version is just insane.

I was in Germany with Joy Ryder and pop songwriter Mariana Ensenzburg when we found out from her friend Mariana that Technohead's "I Wanna Be A Hippy," was playing and we called David Peel to inform him that he was being Plagiarized. It turned into his #1 Gold record, 1995 playing in the BeNeLux countries UK and Germany. Rock In Peace, David Peel, friend of 50 years!

This soooooo needs a re-release. Infectious slammin beat under that joyous cheeky vocal, "I wannbe a hippy and I wanna get stoned", how can anyone not smile when this drops. Hardcore never died, timeless.

It's a shame there is no 7" version of this record but perhaps Gabber and seven inches just don't mix. ;-)

I Wanna Be A Hippy is probably the best sold gabber record which was ever made. The 12" sold about 15000 copies, and the cd-single even sold about a million copies worldwide.
