The original, ultra-rare (and ultra raw!) UK debut album. 10 pop nuggets, recorded straight to analogue tape by a crack band of young Londoners; a musical blender of late '90s Acid Jazz, chamber pop, Northern Soul and future funk. This Special Edition version was remastered by Johnny Astro and features an alternate studio version of 'Still Got My Music' produced by ThighPaulSandra.
