Following a brief diversion to allow for the release of Dean Mereditch solo project Rhythm Odyssey, Stafford's
most productive duo are reunited for a new single. It's perhaps a little looser than their greatest work, combining
that familiar low-end throb with fuzzy vocals, maudlin pianos and scratchy guitars. While solid, it's the accompanying
remixes that offer more thrills. The real killer comes from Brummie nu-Balaeric types The Main Steam, whose
Country Fishing Trip version is a delightfully dubbed-out excursion that sounds like early Fleetwood Mac after a trip
down the Paradise Garage. Leo Zero excels, too, offering up a version that neatly draws out the original's hidden disco chops.
