Touching on punk territory as early as 1969, The Stooges’ ‘I Wanna Be Your Dog’ captured the beginnings of the transformation from the optimistic sixties to the disaffected seventies. Kermit was initially skeptical of the idea to bring the proto-punk classic into the now with a contemporary dance version, but once convinced by the relentless backing track, he took on the Iggy Pop role with aplomb.
This was the first solo release by Kermit Leveridge, a true Manchester groove innovator; featuring in one of the original British breakdancing crews Broken Glass, back in the early eighties, before becoming a member of the influential Ruthless Rap Assassins, then eventually hooking up with Shaun Ryder to form the chart topping Black Grape.
