Classic techno/electro track but I prefer Justin jay called static (same techno sound) seems to be less popular

Both B-Side tracks are really distorted, are they supposed to be like that?

Classic case of the underrated B side here folks. Forget Flat Beat, Monday Massacre is the true hero.

The compilation "New Hits 99" features a 2:56 version of this, about the same length as the VHS promos listed above. No UK promo CD is listed here, but I do remember the version played on UK radio at the time being quite short, so maybe this was it.

I don't understand how this release sells for these ridiculous prices? there were simply hundreds of copies of this for sale when it was released; HMV, Virgin, Music Video Store, Our price and that's not mentioning the tons of underground music stores up and down the country. That said this was a big track when i was at school which people first saw off the Levi advert so if its a nostalgia thing i can see where people are coming from, good video aswell ;)

What a track.. Used on the levi advert for ages then unleashed on the unassuming general public.. It gardually worked its way into garage sets, with a whole heap of bootlegs being made (my fav which I heard on a blog site mixed with doomsnight & a 'test' acapella)

Still a fresh and groundbreaking release.

We owe a lot of Mr Oizo - in particular fidget house, electro madness and general experimental quirkiness. Flat Beat is great (still sounds good in 2015) - I had a good bootleg called "Fat Eroc" which arranged it nicely. http://www.discogs.com/Unknown-Artist-Fat-Eroc/release/643079

Just want to mention Monday Massacre - I remember hearing that when I was about 14 years old, and it blew me away - I could listen to the chilled out final minute forever, which is the epitome of cool but melancholy French electronic music (and bettered some of Air's efforts by some margin).

THIS is the beginning of "Fidget House"!

Firstly, this is the record that started the Fidget House trend (People like Herve, Crookers, Micky Slim), as it has wonky basslines, heavy minimalism, and the overall quirkiness of it all (but M-Seq released a year beforehand is quite possibly the first fidget track ever made, though).

Secondly, this is one heck of a classic stomper, and at least 8 years ahead of it's time! The video featuring that imfamous Flat Eric is priceless, plus his other lesser known works are just as fun and good as well.

Worth the purchase, and will still work on the dancefloor in 2009!
