"Voodoo Ray. This album should perhaps provide a soundtrack of our lives, at least the lives of those who really lived through the past three decades. And if this early classic of British House culture was not part of your soundtrack, then you didn't fucking live. I remember the rumours. He was called Gerald. Honest. And there was some indie label in Stoke. It was a seven inch single or maybe twelve. And you'd walk into the Hacienda, turn right after the entrance and before you had even passed through Ben Kelly's post-modernist arches, if you were lucky, it would be A Guy Called Gerald and those oooh aaahs that would propel you to the dance floor. This classic piece was really the first sign that this wasn't just an import culture. Why were we so surprised by what Gerald had done. Hadn't it happened before. America the beautiful, but she needs the twist that the children of Albion bring to Rock and Roll. Talk Chuck Berry, Iggy Pop, Derrick May and Slipknot. And in the late 80's the Detroit boys were getting the treatment from Gerald and Voodoo Ray wasn't just great music. It was one of the first signs that it was happening all over again." (Tony Wilson - from the liner notes of '24 Hour Party People')
