Yes... i need to tip my hat to this comp as well.

The Saints are one of my all-time favorite indy-acts and this compilation is a stunner. In fact, many of the remixes still hold water today.

Honorable mentions are The Chem Bros breakbeat rework of Like a Motorway (Heeavy!!!) and Aphex Twin's Crunchy Who Do You Think You Are?

Angel is a banger too. Cheers!!

P.F.C.

Saw this band live twice in Toronto. Both times were brilliant.

isn't this the aphex twin mix that he didn't actually do coz he'd forgotten about it so when the courier turned up to collect it he just handed him something else?

agree about the band, quality.

Yes, that was a top story, I remember it well. I believe it was a Lemonheads remix though... :)

You're right about that one, Markus...
And Evan Dando and Co. have probably never sounded cooler...! :wink:
