    You know this! I remember Andy C playing this back in about 2002 lol!

    I think there was problems with sample clearance, hence the delay

    Just some pointless little country&western style banjo solo in reverse, which loops at the end

    Dunno why they didnt just make it one sided? :oscar:

    Maybe on the release, but there is definately some wierd thing on the flip of the promo

    Its some wierd banjo solo in reverse, which locks the groove at the end and just loops endlessly.


    A whole thread about it

    Nothing on the other side (of any consequence). ;)

    Edited posts can't hide from my original email notification ;) ;) ;)

    http://tarzan.spoox.org/display.php?type=release&id=26338 ... so, as far as I'm concerned, one-side vinyl. Bargain. :raiseeyebrow:
