Rollercoaster

Before he was a Dust and then a Chemical Brother Tom Rowlands was in a band called Ariel who had several unsuccessful attempts to have a hit. Not all was lost though- some of their songs hold up. This Dean Thatcher remix of Rollercoaster has bags of 1990 charm, a step or two removed from Dean’s wonderful St Etienne Flying remix.

Speedwell

Speedwell was the b-side to St Etienne’s Nothing Can Stop Us 12″. A second 12″ single was released with this remix by Dean Thatcher and Jagz Kooner of The Aloof, one of those deep, dub-house remixes from 1991 that are rather popular round here. For that moment just after the sun has gone down (probably best in a summer context that, given that it goes dark at around 4pm currently).
