Baby Ford – Children Of The Revolution (US 12″)

From 1989 and keeping with the dance theme and also a good contender for “How Not To Do A Cover” ( a regular series on fellow blogger Jezbionic’s very humorous site over  here at this blast of synthy house from Baby Ford (a.k.a. Peter Frank Adshead who originally hailed from one of my old stomping grounds, Bolton! ). A commercial house remake of 1960’s T-Rex’s,  camp as Christmas and barely redeemable. The main mix has Jeremiah Healy involved and toughens it up with some acid noodle before those camp vocals. To make it worth a listen you have a couple of proper House trax with the driving old skool of his debut, “Ford Trax”, with a sample of lady describing how to rave and a direct references to Larry “Mr. Fingers” Heard in the bassline. The icing on this day-glo bun is the inclusion of a mix of the acid classic “Oochy Koochy” engineered and jointly remixed by Mark McGuire.
