    I've always had a hard time tagging this one with a year. I have chosen to say it belongs to 1993 for "my" catalog.

      sounds like how eastenders should have been soundtracked. pure e-stenders.

        I wish that I could believe that this was released in 1991: as it'd have stood out like a fifteen inch cock amongst all the Belgian 'nosebleed' of the time; bringing with it a nice touch of subtly. However, as with WGYSS and Iron_Shirt, I retain an air of scepticism—mainly because of Rephlex's tongue-in-cheek approach to life. This never, ever shows up in any—of the, admittedly, relatively few—mixes of the time that have been retained for posterity? Why did Sven Väth seemingly only start playing it in 1995? Something this good would be expected to have been rinsed throughout '91 and beyond; not suddenly just appear in '95.

        All that said, if someone can provide evidence that this was released in 1991, I'll be delighted; and, further, whatever the actual release year, that detail disappears into 'trainspotting trivia' obsessions (those of which I'm fully paid up for) when you listen to the actual music. What is important is that it was made and released at all. Excellent, quirky techno.

          fun fact i just realised: the label on both versions lists the B side track's length incorrectly; what it actually lists is the time right in the middle of the original B side (~3:33) and the reissue B side (~5:52), the mid point between them being approx. 4:43

                "Speed isn't mentioned on the release." Sounds more MDMA to me...

                  Although very hard to read (due to being covered by the oversized centre labels), there is a catalogue number etched into the run-out grooves on this 12". Both versions of the record have the same A side track [CAT 001 Q]. They are very faint on my copies, but the version with the 3½ minute long B side track appears to have CAT 001 X in the run-out groove, the version with the different longer 5½ minute B side track looks like CAT 001 Z.

                    Over on the page for the other version of this release (the one with the 5:54 B side duration) it says that is the second release of this record, assuming it was originally released in 1991 as the copyright states. It also implies that this one is the first release, which may or may not be true. Most likely no version of this record ever saw the light of day before that 1995 release date and the 3:32 B side and 5:54 B side versions were both released at the same time.

                      Note that on the Mike Paradinas' 'Gary Moscheles' album the track 'Goodbye Jazz People' he credits Jake Slazenger and Bradley Strider. I can only assume then that they are both recording names for Mike Paradinas.
