  • Enemies Like This
Single title: Enemies Like This
Artist: Radio 4
Label: EMI
It is rare that an 'instrumental' b-side version of a single is worth much notice to the popular listener. Enemies Like This, Radio 4's comeback single, is entirely different: a tune infinitely more potent without Anthony Roman's drawled and puerile vocal, an altogether flat performance that has little in common with his punky authority on the band's earlier hit Dance to the Underground. The star this time is producer Jagz Kooner, who has worked with this impressively tight backing outfit to create an accelerated bolt of electro rock that should have been allowed to take the lead.
