Just finished with State to State 3. I love it. Have to say this (for me) should have got the Blueprint treatment/promotion and the big up talk from all those know it all journalists. This music on STS 3 is still up to date today, even ahead of its time. Blueprint I was happy to see/buy but listening to it gave me quite some pain, quck to flick to the next tune...
Also I'm totally shocked to see only 11 replies to this fkn fantastic release on this fkn fantastic website from this fkn fantastic bunch of Mancs!!! I mean you gotta get yer earphones on, you gotta get the right sound system on, but you gotta get it ON and make some noise! This is really the best 808 release for a long time!
