Andy C's dad is Mick Clarke from The Rubettes who I imagine had some gear in the house. The Rubettes recorded in the studio where Ant Miles worked, and this is how him and Andy met.

Production House

Who was behind the Production House artwork? They had some lovely artwork, especially with the later releases that broke with the earlier disco sleeves. It looks to be the same artist that did the sleeve for Floyd Dice's first band Proton Plus:... See full review

I agree, I feel Torque was really the peak of what was being called 'Techstep' - it sounded genuinely futuristic and thrilling, but 98-00, the rhythm and atmosphere was gone, plodding two step beats, and two-note mid-range basslines that had more in... See full review

Beware if buying from Amazon or someone similar - this shares the same barcode as VA - 100 Love Songs - I ended up with two copies before I got the CD I wanted. Highly recommended BTW.

Agreed - the tune itself is alright, but the 'party tonight, feel alright' vocals sounds like some horrible Swedish House Mafia leftover.

I picked up a mint copy for a quid in one of the Vinyl Exchange stores in London - I had a shock when I was offered 50 for my copy and quickly sold it. Judging by recent prices that buyer got a bargain.
