In January '94, Rick Smith, Darren Emerson & Karl Hyde released their debut album - Dubnobasswithmyheadman - on independent label Junior Boy's Own. Up to that point, the three-piece were seen as something of a square peg. They crafted songs from transcendent dance music. They were clearly a band - complete with frontman/guitarist - yet they made records where the constituent parts and players were often indefinable. Musically, they took elements from the European techno underground & Balearic clubs and fused them with spliced up beat poetry and strung out ambient sounds. Really, they just weren't like anyone else.
