CHARITY SHOP CLASSICS 11

A couple more tracks from the charity shop rummage. One well-known (Leftfield & Lydon), the other less so (Outrage). Both from 1993.
First up the well-known one, Leftfield & Lydon (John Lydon, aka Johnny Rotten of the Sex Pistols), whose collaborative single “Open Up” was a huge hit in 1993. This was followed by their debut album, Leftism in 1995. It was shortlisted for the 1995 Mercury Music Prize but lost out to Portishead’s Dummy. In a 1998 Q magazine poll, readers voted it the eightieth greatest album of all time, while in 2000 Q placed it at number 34 in its list of the 100 Greatest British Albums Ever. With only two albums under their belt, Leftfield decided to split in early 2002 to focus on solo projects. This is the Dust Brothers remix (Ed Simons and Tom Rowlands, who would become the Chemical Brothers).

Next up, Outrage (Fabio Borzacco). He also operated under the names Cool Lemon, Fabio Paras, Sound Clash Republic. He was an utterly brilliant DJ, playing really heavy, basic techno. I used to go religiously every month when he DJed aat Covent Garden’s “Gardening Club” in 1994 and 1995. The track is not techno but a lighter house-style track and is an early release on Junior Boys Own.
