REWIND: Black Machine - 'How Gee'

Sometimes I'm sat listening to the radio (not shitty commercial FM stations of course) and hear a track I haven't heard for ages. Sometimes the track jogs my memory to such an extent that I feel an uncontrollable urge to feature it as a 'Rewind' selection. So here's something which I just heard on Radcliffe And Maconie's BBC 6Music show, although I can't remember where and when I last heard it. I must have owned it on a compilation years ago because it certainly sounds familiar. 'How Gee' is a single from Italian house-hip hop act Black Machine, who consisted of Marius Percali, Ottorino Menardi and Pippo Landro. By the looks of it they were a bit of a one-hit wonder, as this sax-heavy club smash proved to be their only big success. It was originally released in 1991 before being reissued several times in different countries. They released two LP's, 'Black Machine: The Album' and 'Love and Peace', as well as a string of singles throughout the 90s. Are they still going? My research so far hasn't answered that question...
