REWIND: Slacker - 'Scared' (The Lonely Traveller)

It's become a bit of a tradition this, the Tuesday banger. Today we have another selection plucked from the awesome 'Fused' compilation, released as a double CD back in 1997. An edited version of this absolute stomper from Slacker appears on the compilation, but here is the excellent 'Scared' in its full glory. Slacker began as a production team consisting of Shem McCauley and Simon Rogers, making various tracks which became anthems of the mid-90's progressive house/trance scene. Later Shem McCauley went solo and continued work under the 'Slacker' guise, also running the Jukebox In The Sky record label and releasing material on many labels including XL Recordings, Loaded Records, and Perfecto Records. McCauley died in Bangkok, Thailand in January 2012, an apparent case of suicide.
