On November 10, 2016, SubSystem stated: Enters the UK chart on 11th Aug 1991 at no.63

You've got to laugh, ha! It's totally unimaginable anything remotely like this would enter the current UK chart yet alone reach that particular number even if it did enter it nowadays. Everything, including mainstream popular music has become so diluted it's sickening.

Completely different era, different world. When the undergound techno / rave scene was competing with the mainstream without even trying to. Even if the underground truly sounded underground. No real play by mainsteam radio. Shows how popular these tunes were on the underground party scene and pirate radio play. OK maybe Kiss FM played it and it was a legal station by then, but they hardly cained it. They were still alternative and weren't exactly mainstream yet compared to other legal stations. People were feverishly purchasing this stuff, no internet, no internet radio. Just a few underground DJs and rave clubs.

Anyway, this is excellent wacky and creative stuff. Much like most of Eon's / J Saul Kane's early works were back then.

I love this track in all its bonkersness. With all its crazy samples its almost Tom and Jerry. Eon's 'Spice'was a dark, beckoning trip but this does not quite hit the same spot. I never get to the end of the track but the first couple of minutes - superb. Highly amusing. Definately on its way to 'Nine Deadly Venoms' which we would later be graced with. Recommended to people with a sense of humour!
