Container – 'Application'
Spectrum Spools is a great label. Container is fantastic. I play this out all the time. It really reminds of this artist Like A Tim on Djax-Up-Beats. It's really fucked up. I'm sure Weatherall liked his stuff. I always had his records in my box.

He did a cover version of 'Legs' by ZZ Top, which is astonishingly good.

Yeah, the Container album is brilliant. When I DJ I love to be able to get records like this and put them in with more dancey stuff. It's really heavy on the percussion. It's almost tribal, in a ritualistic way. It's repetitious, rhythmic body music.
