Four Boy One Girl Action (And Man Ray)

That's a heading which may bring some disappointed traffic this way. Four Boy One Girl Action were an early 90s acid-house supergroup (of sorts) who put out a 12" single in 1993. The Hawaiian Death Stomp was released on David Holmes' Exploding Plastic Inevitable, the four boys being Holmes, Kris Needs, and Gary Burns and Jagz Kooner moonlighting from Sabres Of Paradise. It's long, it's 'progressive', it'll bugger your speakers if you play it very loud. This is the B-side.

The Hawaiian Death Dub

Today's Man Ray is Salvador Dali. You didn't need me to tell you that.

Thanks for this, love love loved the A side (on a comp CD of the time) to death (no pun etc) - never heard this monster until now...would venture to say it's actually BETTER than the A side (the build up intro thrilled to the point of anything following would be a slight let down..this version breaths & builds organically) - speakers fukked, I'll get me anorak!
