Exploding Plastic

While we're playing long dance records here's David Holmes' debut single Johnny Favourite from 1994. Recorded with Jagz Kooner and Gary Burns (two thirds of The Sabres Of Paradise) and released on Warp it's fair to say that this one goes on a bit. Just under sixteen minutes in fact. In that time Holmes manages pounding beats (that do sound very like Sabres), ambient breakdowns and all kinds of progressive house bits and bobs, before building to a pretty explosive ending.

Brilliant tune but it doesn't evoke images of Angel Heart in mean. I take it that's where the title comes from. Although the ambient mix is slightly creepy.

Never got the Angel Heart reference either.
