Tune is so real.

You wanna know why it’s so real?

Cos its from 1994 which means it’s from the GOLDEN WINDOW of pop from 1992-94 when every single song released was VERY FUCKING REAL.

I’m not even joking.

You had to be there.

7pm – Argyle Bar (Cellar). Jackpot £30. Cheat news: Music round includes Klaxons (see vid below).

9pm – The Newsroom. Jackpot £100. Cheat: One of the answers in the picture round is penguin

The Klaxons are here at Glastonbury in 2007.

I am of a generally liberal and liberated mindset but I will punch you in the throat if you say “Glasto”. For some reason that shit winds me up.

I cannae go it.

Anyway – The Klaxons were a fun group in the zeroes but the original of this song is much older and comes from the time in the early 90s when rave culture was fingering the pop charts for the first time.

The act was called Kicks Like A Mule

Unlike a lot of the poppier rave chart stuff like 2 Unlimited, this was a chart hit that did actually sound similar to stuff that was getting played at actual raves.

Anyway, there’s nowt more boring than an old quizmaster raving on about the days of rave, so I’ll shut the fuck up now.

But do listen. The original is here. It is great:
