Great part of the interview when he recalls/says
"Once I built a 600 watts valve amplifier, and carried it to King’s Cross, and he (Barracuda) had one of these big bins and he was working in the front and he had a pre-amp, nice man, and he was showing interest in valves and things like that. He string up one of his pre-amps on it. And trust me, when it started to play, all the rats in the place started to run out!"

Also nice to see Mr 'African' Eddie mentioned, albeit in a kind of
competitive way lol. Would love to hear his perspective on the origination
days of Soundsystem. I have a strong feeling that his input back then
is much understated.
I did hear that Shaka's amp wasn't actually built specifically for him but
was made for another operator. Good to hear the story from the builder himself...
Also amazingly, that amp hadn't been connected since the late 80's.

Metro is good friends with an Idren of mine. He built him a couple of preamps. Murderous. Metro is the original UK sound veteran. Id post some pics but my Idren wouldn't allow it lol.
