A freaky song accompanied by an equally freaky video that mostly just freaked folks out. I know people who actually hate this song, and you have to wonder whether Dolby went out of his way to rub people the wrong way with this strangely persistent piece of braindance music. The single runs nearly a minute less than the elpee version, presumably by chopping the fade at the end. The B side is a dub mix of previous bits that’s equally hyperactive. However, a more fitting companion would be XTC’s “Extrovert” methinks.
