Orange Juice – Rip It Up (1982)


Orange Juice

The word “squelch” always has me thinking of the Roland TB-303. Before it became the mainstay of house music, 1982’s introduction of the TB-303 was originally designed as a computerised bass. Here Edwyn Collins and pals use it as it was originally intended on Orange Juice’s new wave classic title track off Rip It Up – all helped by some choppy Nile Rodgers-style guitar. But as good as it is, thankfully the Transistor Bass 303’s use would be¬†bastardised to service many a dance floor.
