Listen to 'The River' here, King Trigger fans; http://www.kingtrigger.co.uk/

Tantalise is a great song in the lineage of classic one hit wonders like 'John Wayne is Big Leggy', 'Brilliant Mind' and 'Driving away from home'.

Hayzi Fantayzee did have a couple of other hits - "Sister Friction" and "Shiny Shiny" (the latter now sounds a lot weirder than it did at the time and its first four seconds in particular invent Tricky).

I wish there was Youtube footage of Danny Blanchflower telling him to fuck off.

Everybody Salsa because it's a timeless club jam, though Queen Of the Rapping Scene's rap is pretty awesome.

fourteen years pass...

Is this really the only Modern Romance thread? Their first album Adventures in Clubland should be worshipped by all the hipsters as a dance-pop classic. Not a bad song in the bunch.
