It's got some quite good tracks on it, I wouldn't go so far as to
suggest that it's consistently amazing, because it's not. The Utah
Saints remix of "Watermelon Man" is probably the best track, even
according to unbiased sources; other good tracks include the Wagon
Christ and Gus Gus remixes.

Actually, to be fair, the Utah Saints list has been going since
February, well before I joined any other music-related OneList lists at
all. So there. :-P
And since I've chatted to the band a few times, and the list also
contains a couple of other people with connections to the band, the list
is a little bit more established (or maybe 'in-bred') than some
There's also a Utah Saints connection with the Dope Smugglaz, Leeds
based source of recent hit "Double Double Dutch". So there's a mailing
list for them as well... hey, if it's free, don't knock it! But the Dope
Smugglaz list is pretty much dead.

Have you joined the Utah Saints list? If not you should, if only because
people on the Hybrid list are going to get tired of the off-topic
