INFO > Vocalist Saffron (Samantha Sprackling) briefly fronted N-Joi before staking out a solo career, releasing a handful of singles through Warner Music. In 1993, she hooked up with former Weekender keyboardist Tim Dorney and studio whiz Andy Todd to form Republica. This UK promo couples the band’s first two singles: vinyl only “Out Of This World” and follow-up “Bloke.” The Chem Bros remix and dub of “Out Of This World” resurfaced later on 1997’s “Drop Dead Gorgeous”; however, the band’s original version and Justin Robertson’s mix are digital exclusives here.
