Nation 12 were comprised of Dennis Leigh, Kurt Rogers, Simon Rogers and Tim Simenon. 'Listen To The Drummer' samples ‘Welcome To The Terrordome’ by Public Enemy and ‘Human Beat Box’ by Fat Boys. I'm not going to go into boring muzo detail about the significance of this record, but it was truly ahead of its time and will remain a hardcore favourite of mine.
