A stone-cold classic slice of Detroit Techno from the man called James Pennington. Of course, I already had a basic UK repress, but this is an earlier pressing on the Transmat label – ‘Made In Detroit, MI, USA’, indeed. Dark, edgy, seething with repressed energy and menace, they really don’t make ’em like this anymore.
Picked this up in the local British Red Cross today along with an armful of other great records (more soon, I promise). Apparently they’d all arrived just this morning. There was a guy already rooting through the fresh pile when I got there. He also left the shop happy, with an armful of wax, though why he passed on this and some of the other gems I came across afterwards remains an inexplicable mystery.
