Back in July, hardware fetishists and acid house revivalists Paranoid London returned with We Come To Rock, their first 12" single for three years. Here they build on that success with two more razor-sharp, 303-enhanced hardware jams for sweat-soaked basements and pitch-black warehouses. Of the two, it's the more ragged and psychedelic "Our Man Though" that hits home hardest, thanks largely to the combo layering waves of twisted acid lines on top of distorted, teak-tough drum machine beats. "Give Me The" is a little more sedate in comparison, but still impresses thanks to its smart combination of a menacing groove, pitched-down vocal samples, and occasional, undulating acid motifs.
