A single that harks back to the double-sided brilliance of bygone reggae 45s of the '70s, the Bug's "Gun Disease" matches the album version with a B-side version that stretches out Cutty Ranks' vocal into four minutes of ring-modulated genius.

The Bug's first album, Tapping The Conversation, was released in 1997 on the seminal Wordsound label.
