Ian Masterson

Real Name:
Ian Kenneth Masterson
Profile:
Ian Masterson was born in Belfast (Belfast-born brother of Paul Masterson), Northern Ireland, United Kingdom. His work started out when he stumbled across a remix-ready tape of a Pet Shop Boys track - Discoteca - in his manager's office. With a copy of that he started working, ending up with a remix that turned more than a few heads. He came up with the name 'Trouser Enthusiasts', working with one David Green. Together they made more than fifty remixes and productions in two years (between 1996 and 1998), working with artists like Saint Etienne, Kylie Minogue, Gloria Estefan, Donna Summer and many others.
In 1999, Trouser Enthusiasts became a pop group, but David Green was replaced by female singer Mitch Stevens for this occasion. Their single 'Sweet release' did not make an impact on the UK chart, however it was a club favourite for a while. The track was written by Ian and Terry Ronald, who was to become an important partner for Ian in subsequent projects.
They collaborated on the production of Sheena Easton's 2000 album 'Fabulous'.

I really enjoyed the Gascoigne film that was recently released and loved the music that was used on it. Is there any way that you could let me know what the name of the track was that was used about 10 minutes in, when Gazza was talking about when he first joined Newcastle and images of St James' Park were shown as I cannot find it anywhere and it doesn't show up on Shazam. Many thanks!
