Why waste your time? You know you're gonna be mine



Timeslip moment again, and our little wormhole has plonked us down in this week twenty-three years ago, in 1992.

In the news - the country's ugliest Government minister David Mellor resigned over his extra-marital affair, Britain's withdrawal from the European Exchange Rate Mechanism was still causing ructions with the pound and unemployment was at an all-time high, the new 10p coin was unveiled, Glengarry Glen Ross and The Crying Game were in the cinema, and on the small screen we saw the launch of Channel 4's The Big Breakfast and the BBC's ill-fated soap Eldorado was already suffering widespread ridicule [we loved it!].

In the charts, "Acid House" was still a force to be reckoned with - the Shamen's Ebeneezer Goode was at Number 1 - but the rest of the chart was a real mish-mash. Everything from Daniel O'Donnell to Mike Oldfield to Def Leppard to Manic Street Preachers to Tamsin Archer to Stereo MCs was here - but hovering in the wings, waiting for its moment in the sun was this classic.

Here's Bizarre Inc (featuring Angie Brown) and I'm Gonna Get You



"Yo, DJ, pump this party!"

And why not?
