Agree with Elusive - Gabba sucks. I remember going to an illegal do near Colcheste back in the day (in Alresford i think). DJ was playing decent stuff so I dropped a pill, and settled in just as the DJ was finishing.....and spent the next 90 minutes (or it felt that long anyway) being tortured by the next DJ who was playing Gabba. Not nice. Then the river flooded the car park, the old bill turned up and we all had to leave!!!!!

The Eastenders tunes was a Labello Blanco track, cant remember offhand who made it. the other side sampled a long R&B verse and was just as duff. That Simpsons tune is lame, I have it somewhere, it's on clear vinyl with black swirls in it and a purple label.
The ragga twins made some pretty shit tunes, as did E label. Biology churned out some crap too. I have a tune on Rising High called Return to toytown EP, thats pretty bad.

Woah there! Which Ragga Twins tunes? And 'Return To Toytown' (whilst not being a fondly remembered classic admittedly) is not a bad EP at all.

Spliffhead, wipe the needle and Hooligan 69 were orsum. Nothing else they made came close. They liked the sound of their own voices too much. Toytown not bad? I'll dig it out and have another listen. I remember it being goppingly shite.

Whereas if a tune is badly produced, with out of time samples and out of tune melodies or singing, then I think you can make a good argument for it being 'bad'.
but you could still like those badly made tunes, so the same still applies. that Mystery Tour tune earlier is pretty wonky for instance but i love it :D so Elusive is as valid saying it about gabba. (although obviously his taste is still wrong cos gabba is fantastic so nearly there ;)

some things are just more polarising than others i think!

Another record springs to mind. I think it's called 'Energiser' It had a blue label. A load of loops stolen from other tunes and flung together.

The "Eastenders" Labello Blanco (http://www.discogs.com/Payback-The-Sequel/master/3257) admittingly is a bit gay but the other side is super good. One of my all time pirate radio tunes as thats where ive mainly heard it on. Simpsons is ok (i like it cos ive got it on an old LTJ Bukem tape). Ragga Twins were wicked. Limited E put out some absolute bangers and along with Ibiza i really rate them after not being too fussed when i started collection. Biology also put some great tracks out. Return To Toytown is ace and the Energizer series is absolutely essential.

If you want a shoddy megamix style tune then this is culprit
