I remember this being marked as released in 1991. Also cat# 010 and 012 were released around that time. Another commenter mentions that he heard it back in 1992. Then I check this rekkit after almost a decade and see it marked as released in 1993. I understand that a release in terms of the wax is obviously the date it was available for the regular Joe at some record store, but what's the proof that this was actually released in 1993?

Without this, there is no Surgeon, Regis, BMB or "Birmingham sound." Each and every one of us owe a huge debt of gratitude to James Pennington. This is without doubt his best release, way ahead of it's time and a jewel in the UR catalogue. Immense.

This is why we drove whilst being awake for a couple of hours after a 24 hour+ party in berlin, This is why we lost loves because they didn't share or take our passion seriously, this is why we stayed awake for ever, This is techno!

Infra Red Spectrum relies heavily from this tune Autonation- Sit On The Bass...
Heavy 12" worth its weight in every shape and form ;)

This Underground Resistance release is in the top five of great techno tunes of all time(for me anyway)This Detroit sound is what its all about,a hard,quality production for the "warehouse" dancefloor,dark and melodic with a mindwarping,trance inducing beat which sends you off to another level.The a side track'infa red spectrum' is very remeniscent of later Mad Mike productions,but the ultimate track is No.1 on side b "magnetic timetable",an absolute masterpiece in "trance techno",mainly driven by its burbling acidy bassline,interlaced by the hypnotic Underground Resistance 'siren' sound.This tune was given much attention by the likes of DJ Steve Bicknell at his 'Lost' parties and others like Luke Slater and Lee Insync.'Magnetic timetable' still sounds good today,it also mixes well with "star dancer",Red Planet 2 by The Martian.

For me, possibly the most important record ever released. I Heard Dave Clarke play this tune on Festival FM in Brighton in ’92 and was simply blown away. Went out n tracked down a copy the very next day and have been buying Detroit techno ever since.
This way this tune starts with those liquid synth sounds, menacing and moody, then just drops the beat along with a rumbling bass line as fat as any modern DnB tune, gives me a rush n Goosebumps even after 13 years and 1000 listens.

Absolute genius.

James Pennington is one of my favourite detroit producer and nocturbulous behaviour is one of my prefered techno tracks.
The sad ambience of nocturbulous is fascinating and infra red spectrum is one of the more effective and timeless techno record ever made............RESPECT!

Another example for creative dark sound-landscapes between funky asskickin' beats and percussive elements from detroit ("Infra Red Spectrum" makes it really!). Typical James Pennington production, I love all his works.
