I hope to god you are actually talking about a real group and a real song title.

Never heard of it at all! The band name makes me think of Union Carbide Productions, of all things...

God, this board is FANtastic.

Your description is quite right, EXCEPT taht for the last 10-15 seconds, a barely discernible bassline comes in to accompany the close of the song. It has NO equal. I've got it on casette somewhere.

The best part is the breakdown where it goes POOOING POOOING POOOING POOOING POOOING POOOING POOOING POOOING at half-tempo, then revs back up.

Dan Perry (Dan Perry), Thursday, 5 December 2002 16:14 (fourteen years ago) Permalink

The best thing was the radio ad that came out about a week after the song. It went:

Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing Poing

I'm sure I have namechecked this song at least once in an ILX post before, but 'tis not showing up when I search for 'Poing' (wtf?). Posts from gareth and Siegbran are tho'.

Jeff W, Thursday, 5 December 2002 16:32 (fourteen years ago) Permalink

Poing reached the number two position in the Dutch charts in '92. RTS discography.

Siegbran (eofor), Thursday, 5 December 2002 17:53 (fourteen years ago) Permalink

It's listed in the 'CDs we suggest you buy' bit on the Go-Kart Mozart album inlay, I think Lawrence may have snuck it (or something very similar) underneath "Wear Your Foghat With Pride" on the same album.

alexfack (alexfack), Thursday, 5 December 2002 22:15 (fourteen years ago) Permalink

I remember going into Street Sounds on Melrose when this came out. I literally heard three kids go up to DJ Barry Weaver who was sort of working there and each of them went up and said: "So dude, like there's this track that I'm looking for, and it's like this techno song and it goes like: 'Poing, Poing, Poing, Poing, Poing', disgusted, he would simply point to the row of Rotterdam Termination Source 12s that all had 'Poing' clearly written on them... Classic-ly annoying track!

Spencer Chow (spencermfi), Thursday, 5 December 2002 22:24 (fourteen years ago) Permalink

Once heard, never forgotten, it made the UK top 30 too. I think it's sampled in the new song from Scooter (SCOOO-TAHHHH).

Billy Dods (Billy Dods), Thursday, 5 December 2002 23:07 (fourteen years ago) Permalink

gareth (gareth), Thursday, 5 December 2002 23:18 (fourteen years ago) Permalink

No, it's Maurice Steenbergen, but RTS was on the same label Rotterdam Records, with all the usual suspects of the early gabber years: Paul Elstak, Euromasters, Neophyte, Holy Noise, Hardliners, Lenny Dee, Sperminator.

I remember this tune. Had a mate who went on about this amazing song(we all knew he had dodgy taste) finally he played it to us and we all fell about laughing. Especially when he said here is the good bit and it was just the same as the rest of it.

mullygrubbr (bulbs), Wednesday, 11 January 2006 05:30 (eleven years ago) Permalink

Well my guess is you have a Prodigy sitation here. One person is making the music and the other four are dancers and/or mc's, going 'Rave it to the maximum!' in Dutch accents.

ratty, Wednesday, 11 January 2006 05:42 (eleven years ago) Permalink

My guess is that the muso in this band is the one on the far right - does anyone know? My reasoning is that he looks a little introspective, and, for that matter, a little like Liam Howlett of the Prodge.

'Rotterdam Termination Source' are back,joining forces with 'Human Resource' to respark a new wave of Hardcore Old Skool. After a successful comeback appearence on Oct 4th in Zaandam, Holland, Maurice Steenbergen (RTS), Guido Pernet (HR) these forces have united to revive the still existant old skool scene. Along with 'T99' Vocalist Zeno Zevenbergen this looks like a unstoppable team ready to 'Dominate the World' once more

That's like the ultimate dream team!

It was in my friend Douglas Benford's car, heading south down Great Portland Street, I believe. Lawrence was keen to incorporate some novelty sounds in the second Denim album.

Fans of this should seriously check out Tok Tok's Tora Bora -- similar levels of tweaked-out cartoon poinginess, and really only slightly less single-minded about it.

127. In a disused warehouse on the outskirts of Hilversum, 75 people are still dancing to "Poing" by the Rotterdam Termination Squad.

They did a follow up single (they took their time) which I remember had a track that was a strop against 2 Unlimited's "No Limit" which had elements of "Poing" in it.

There's quite a few versions of "Poing".

The one under the YSI-link seems... funkier than the one I played incessantly summer of 1992. I think the 'Stuiterhouse' version is the one to get.

naranjito (Koens), Thursday, 12 January 2006 12:44 (eleven years ago) Permalink

So I did some research and concluded: "Poing" counts exactly 265 poings. Defend/Refute.
