    The video for E-Vapor-8 was meant to feature journalist Dominic Green reprising his narration of their gig outside Shelleys (the "This is the moment..", but he failed to show on the day of the shoot and was replaced by the green puppet. The video was shot in Neil Rushton's house. They hired 3 tanks (in the video they are shown 'buying' them from Network co-owner Dave Barker (14).

            Classic mainstream Altern8. By this stage they had worked out the formula of stabby synths, female vocals over a simple breakbeat overlaid with a hefty dose of pianos and sampled riffs of other tracks popular in clubland at the time. This one certainly came together beautifully. The "sample" of Derrick May's Stings of Life lasts at least a minute each time it drops and dominates the track. Now that's how to sample!

              Hardcore! You know the score. The raging, raving beats, with the "Strings" sample make this a dancefloor delerium certainty. Watch yer bassbins, I'm tellin' ya!
