Pop Will Eat Itself – Def Con One

Pop Will Eat Itself were the kings of sampling. Taking influences from early Beastie Boys and Public Enemy, the Poppies released their first album ‘Box Frenzy’ in 1987 before unleashing ‘This is the Day, This is the Hour, This is This!’– a collection of songs signalling the end of the world. Def Con One was one such song released as a single, sampling artists as diverse as Iggy Pop and the Stooges and Lipps Inc. as well as a bit of The Twilight Zone for good measure. If you were wondering, their name is taken from an NME article on a band called Jamie Wednesday (who later became Carter USM).
