I Hate Hate
Well that- the referendum, as if you didn't guess- was a total disaster. It's a strange day indeed when I can't get any satisfaction from David Cameron resigning. We're screwed. Completely.
The Sound Of Shoom released this single in 1991, later compiled on Creation's Keeping The Faith compilation (a very important record round these parts). The Sound Of Shoom was a production name for dj Danny Rampling, the man who started Shoom, a somewhat influential acid house night heldin a leisure centre in Southwark. The lyrics to I Hate Hate sound a bit trite and hippy-dippy now but fitted perfectly into the times and the song is in fact a cover, a soulful housed up version, of a 1974 Northern tune by Razzy And The Neighbourhood Kids.
And, to everyone out there who's peddled hate over the last few months, enough with the hate yeah?
