The A-Side is one of the biggest tunes from the grunge era and is given a Jazzy Funky Groovey version by Blue Mode. Nirvana were influenced by everything from The Gap Band to Louie Louie and a fair smattering of 80’s indie and this production by Chip Wickham mix’s in a swinging ‘60s’ Blue Note vibe with Acid Jazz sound and brings it bang up to date with Nu-Jazz experience.  First time on 45 and is already a DJ favourite after being included in Paul Murphy set”Jazz Room on BBE Records.

The B-Side is a Boogaloo Latin Jazz version (Produced by Paul Murphy live in the studio with El Chavo, Budapest’s first ever Boogaloo Band) of the Lonnie Smith track “Hola Muneca” beloved of the Acid Jazz era DJ’s and previously released on a now I’mpossible to find 7’ inch single that goes for crazy prices.
