Bentley Rhythm Ace : Theme from Gutbuster

Bloop-de-bloop-de-bloop goes this pointless sonic spiral in a vortex of inanity, a bit like an approximation of the Pentium Processor theme...

Big beat. What a caper. Gonzo-pop innocence in excelsis and how we all larfed and BRA - tee-hee! - were its knights in shiny boiler suits and the beach at Brighton whizzed'n'fizzed'n'threw its frozen fish fingers in the air like it just didn't care that the whole wheeze was a transient sideshow cavalcade because, of course, it didn't because that, of course, was the Point. And the point BRA have now forgotten, bringing us the keg-dregs of what Stormin' Norman Cook called, three years ago, the 'gags' of big beat and today they're the other sort entirely. Bloop-de-bloop-de-bloop goes this pointless sonic spiral in a vortex of inanity, a bit like an approximation of the Pentium Processor theme tune while a

robot commands, supersonically, "Feel the music in your gut, get up and move your butt!". Feel the music in your butt, get up and move your gut, more like. (How disgusting. Sorry.)
