      Right on! I've already signed up and am looking forward to the conversation
      that will ensue. :)

      Neither do I have the single, but it was released on the double-cd that came
      out in 1996 (along w/ the Stars remix). It was their debut cd Disgraceful w/
      a second remix cd added for good measure.

      Yes, www.juno.co.uk has it for 14 and a half pounds.

      I might join that one. ;)

      I suppose you're right, but I've yet to hear the album in it's entirety,
      only snippets here and there. '

      Back to on-topic material, Hybrid released a live performance cd included
      with "Wide Angle" in Japan. A friend of mine has it, and said it's superb.
      The price is a little steep due to the nature of the import (Japanese
      double-cd), but I hope to snatch a copy someday. ;) Also, Distinctive will
      be releasing a compilation called Y3K in the near future that will feature
      unreleased tracks from artists like Rennie Pilgrem, BT, Hybrid, & Way out
      West. I've got the promotional sticker for it, and a friend of mine has the
      actual promo on vinyl, and said the Hybrid and WOW material is particularly
      excellent (nu-skool/trance breaks material evidently). It will be released
      on vinyl (unmixed), I presume and also on cd mixed by a DJ whose name
      currently escapes me.
