I was trawling that fine blog, Castles In Space, when I saw that he had posted “Crystal Clear: The Orb Remixes” by The Grid. I used to love The Grid in their pre-Texas Cowboys cheese phase. I commented that the best Grid track was “Boom!”.

A couple of hours later I put the iPod to random and what should quickly pop up but “Boom!”. Not being one to ignore a sign (“Our Weatherall who art in heaven, give us this day our daily techno”) I thought I’d better post it for all. Despite its age (1991), the use of sub-sonic bass means that it holds up really well. And with italo-disco making a bit of a comeback it sounds all the more current. And they have a new album out – Doppelganger.
