Well deserved position. Hope the boys will be celebrating this!

Here is the direct link to the various "Pacific" releases on the discography pages:

The mentioned must-have "Tommy Boy" Records releases can be found further down. Time to dig out the old, trusty Vinyl! Oh sweet melody..

OK, here's my translation:

Actually written and produced by Gerald Simpson aka A Guy Called Gerald, "Pacific" is the best Warp record that was never released on this label. Enigmatic, magical, English and somewhere between Acid House, Techno and the hypnosis technique of Manuel Göttsching, this brilliant coup d'eclat today still sounds as fresh as in 1989. Instead of the more dry drum'n'bass remixes we recommend the remixes on Tommy Boy by Tommy Musto, Frankie Bones and overdubs by Eric Kupper. Morgan Geist and Darshan Jesrani of Metro Area even make this release accountable for the re-importation of Techno to the United States.

Simon Galsworthy writes"Sold a copy of 'Pacific State' in Vinyl Exchange today and had a very scary thought, that i actually remember sitting in Spirit Studios on Tariff Street in Manchester the night Graham Massey first started to record the sax line for that track with Gerald, Mc Tunes, Andy, Darren and Martin Price, if i remember right Graham did it in small chunks. One of their most enjoyable concerts was when they supported A.C.R at the Free Trade Hall and we celebrated with Tequila through a drip from a hospital!
