Heat It Up


This will wake you up...



Wee Papa Girl Rappers were twins, Sandra and Samantha Lawrence (Total S and TY Tim), formerly backing singers for Feargal Sharkey, who had a few minor hits in the late 80s. Heat It Up (made with 2 Men And A Drum Machine) hit number 21, the double trouble rapping and chanting riding on a 1988 club rhythm (and coupled with a Kevin Saunderson remix). It got them on Top of The Pops. Follow up Wee Rule went top 10.



The version at the top is a recent re-edit from SanFranDisko and comes as a free download. I rather like it.

don't remember this whatsoever...but I do recall 'Wee Rule'

Weren't 2 Men and a Drum Machine the non-singing blokes out of Fine Young Cannibals? Or am I mixing something up here??

I loved the original, especially the acid house remix and this is very good too

I got a dodgy bootleg of their album which was going along swimmingly before morphing into whatever it was it was recorded over
