Headhunter is a great ebm/industrial song, with all the elements that made it a hit. However, the real hit from this 12" is it's B-Side.
Not many people will recognize it's name, but they'll sure remember the key words: "No Sex Unltil Marriege!", and "Hey Poor! You Don't Have To Be Poor Anymore..."
During the early 90's you can still hear samples from this track on many New-Beat and early Techno releases, Megamixes, and DJ sets. Behind the key-words, there's a brilliant work of Synthesizers, Samplers, and Sound. This one of the better releases by the 242 team.
