Boy's Own Recordings - The Twelves BOIX13
Where were we? Well before Christmas for completion purposes only I posted the youtube clip of the twelfth single on the label by Denim. Today we are back with the dance music with a belter of a tune by a duo/trio who would become very well know and not just within the dance music aficionados a few years later when another song (?) of theirs would be used in Trainspotting. Underworld would also go on to have a fruitful pairing with Junior Boy's Own where they had already released a brace of brilliant singles under alias Lemon Interupt , however Mmm . . . Skyscraper was their only release on Boy's Own. The tune is long and throbbing and has some very strange lyrics about porn dogs and god talking to Elvis. It isn't quite on the same level as Rez but then again not very much is.
