A Bit Of A Floorboard Rattler: This was one of those 'one-hit-wonders' which, I believe, Mrs. B bought the 12" single.
Having forgotten about it, (some may say that is the best thing which could be done with it), Austrian dart player, Mensur Suljovic, uses it as his walk-on music on the Sky PDC darts on TV just now.
It's a typical, bouncy, Euro-hit, (and the video is, typically, dreadful), but the drumming on that 12" single, although a very basic beat, used to amuse me, as it proved the capacity and density of the vinyl 12" single for volume by being so loud and up-front in the production, that they rattled the floorboards.
For those who never have, listen to the 12" version of the 'Overkill' single, which has a very similar effect.
