Strip Search/Panic Attack
Simon Patterson provides the follow-up to the gimmicky-but-great 'F16'. The beats and bass of 'Strip Search' piston along together as the techy jabs and proggy effects piss petrol on its barbecue. The frayed, distorted quality of the classical piano breakdown merely adds to the left-of-centre cool. Flipside and 'Panic Attack' has a surplus of ideas all jostling for position. The two and a half minute break is a touch excessive, but you can't fault the hectic end result. Massive!
