A Fistful Of Peanuts

This track is a reworking of Clint Eastwood that appeared on Laika Come Home. The title is a play on the fact that Clint Eastwood the movie star, starred in a film called 'Fistful Of Dollars' (the peanuts part no doubt being added because of the Space Monkeyz reference). It is one of the more interesting remixes on the Laika Come Home album, one of the reasons for this is that it features additional vocals from Earl 16 and U Brown reggae / dancehall artists.
