To me there are three greats in the UK hardcore scene - Sharkey, Kevin Energy and Scott Brown. I have to rate Sharkey as the best of them as I believe he is a true innovator and kept pushing the genre forward and worked to develop new talent. His 303 basslines are always blistering but he can also write incredible melodies. Amazing talent.

Does anyone know if Sharkey's song "Bang like a mother" was ever released on vinyl or digital format? If so, where can I locate this gem of a song?
