P IS FOR PERFECTO ALLSTARZ

Perfecto was Oakenfold’s label in the 1990s. They went big time for Big Room and Uplifting House. Oakie made a mint, sod the cred. That didn’t pay the bills.

I’ve no idea what brought this record to fruition. But they decided to re-record early 80s punk funk indie hit “Papa’s Got A Brand New Pigbag” by Pigbag. This was aimed squarely at a mass-market dancefloor. It has Oakie’s polished production values and was burnished to within an inch of its life. Lost some of its soul in the process.

Still played at many a football ground round the country:
