Once acid house went mainstream it didn’t take long for British pranksters to get in on the act. D-Mob’s 1988 hit We Call It Acieed set the tone, but it was The Prodigy’s Charly, which brazenly sampled a children’s safety advert, that sparked a rush of “toytown” imitations. By the summer of 1992 novelty tracks combining nudge-nudge drug references with lifts from vintage TV included Urban Hype’s Trip To Trumpton, which sampled the ’ 60s kids’ show of the same name, and Smart E’s infamous Sesame’s Treet. Even The Shamen got in on the act with Ebeneezer Goode. Its cocky “Es are good” refrain earned them their first Number 1, but also suggested the UK rave scene was in danger of turning into a bad joke.
