Krush - 'Jack's Back'

When I would walk to school there was a newsagents with one of those postcard stands you get at tourist shops but in it were 7”s, and my mum would sometimes buy me one. I bought loads of terrible ones, but one I did get was this. The A-side was a big chart hit, but this is the B-side. It's intriguing to think that kind of stuff was in the charts. It’s another one where I think: I'd play this now. You could drop this and nobody would bat an eyelid, but it’s a 7" I bought when I was 10.
