I missed Pavement’s great years while I was absorbed in the house music heyday of the early 90s. Inner City were probably most famous for their 1988 Detroit classics ‘Big Fun’ and ‘Good Life’. But greater heights were to come with a trinity of dancefloor fillers in 1992: ‘Hallelujah’, ‘Praise’ and Kevin Saunderson sublime Tunnel Mix of ‘Pennies From Heaven’. The sheer invention – at the time, nothing else sounded like this. I had the opportunity to take a handful of vinyl to a friend’s birthday a few weeks back. This track still attracts the attention of new (and younger) ears. Mr Saunderson – you (and your pal Derrick May) were ahead of the curve!
