    to each his own, i supposed, but to imply that house music was "boring" until uk funky "showed" it to be otherwise is a bit presumptuous. i mean, which one of those genres has lasted 40+ years and which one flamed out in about two?

    It was more a reference to Marcus saying 'its not boring!' on the famous Rinse show.

    Actually I think funky was great because it was housey as well as grimey. It never needed to go super dark/grimey like some people wanted, at least not without the balance.

    Thanks Benny, I knew you'd help out here.

    Reckon this tune was pretty influential early on in uk funky, as grimey as any of the uk stuff - lil silva did a remake of it I think.
