The problem isn't that Paranoid London are repeating themselves on these two tracks—they're just not as effective. On "Give Me The," familiar elements—hectic rim shots, a roiled acid bassline—are set in place, but you're left waiting in vain for a second wind. It could be as slight as the one on Paranoid London's "Paris Dub 1," where the introduction of a bassline shed seedy neon light on Brightledge's lyrical portrayal of street life.
"Our Man Though" has the air of a live jam. Swells of acid suddenly and inelegantly rush in against a four-note acid line. The choppy sequencing is appealing up to a point. Like "Give Me The," the B-side gathers the desired momentum, but there's no space left to ease or redirect the tension. After an album follow-up like We Come To Rock, it's clear that Paranoid London can sound more inspired than this.
