Dark, intense, a huge break beat, and a manic guitar sample from The Breeders Kim Deal. To combine a chilling dance track with the essence of punk rock is a very rare achievement, but Howlett, Flint and co. pull it off with bombastic aplomb. Take away the electronic rhythms and this is as close to the musical revolution of 1976 you will ever witness.
