Chart Singles: #2 "Lets Go!".

This is the second installment of the early 90's computer/console game music craze in the UK. This week we have another track that was released in order to promote the upcoming release of a game.

Artist: SFX
Title: Lemmings

The producers of this track, Ian Richardson & Nick Coler were also involved with the KLF/Timelords/2K (1988-1997) as well as being responsible for producing Space's first album 'Spiders' (1996) Unfortunatly for them this track scraped the lower end of the UK charts yet sill managed to hang about for a few weeks. It was released to advertise the upcoming release of 'Lemmings 2: The Tribes' but unlike the game the track never received much press of it's own barely getting any air-time at all probably due to the radio stations like the general public losing interest in the game music remixing fad by this point.
