Happy Mondays – Stinkin Thinkin
1992 Factory Communications Ltd (UK)
01. Stinkin Thinkin (Stephen Hague 7″)
02. Stinkin Thinkin (Boy’s Own Mix)
03. Baby Big Head
04. Stinkin Thinkin (Junior Style)
FACT > Farley and Heller’s Junior Style mix makes this one a keeper; there’s no trace of the original tune, mind you—just a killer groove and great vocal hooks.
And after all these years, I only recently learned that producer Stephen Hague is American. Given his seminal work with many notable UK bands (OMD, Pet Shop Boys, New Order, Erasure), I had always assumed he was British or European. Go figure.
