There is nothing we love more here at Jammy Toast than listening to some of our favourite tunes. From time to time we will post a music video from an artist or genre that we think will be enjoyable to you; our friends. We often feature music that you may not have come across before, or music that maybe you just missed the first time around. Try and listen with an open mind, you never know, you may find something you can add to your iPod. If you have any music videos you would like us to feature then drop us a line – we are always happy to listen to requests but we cannot promise to feature everyone’s favourite

There is nothing like a bit of 90s Hip Hop but this week instead of turning to Massive Attack we have a little taste of Sneaker Pimps and their single “Six Underground”. First released as a single in the United Kingdom in September 1996, the song reached number 15 on the UK Singles Chart and had moderate radio airplay in the United States. After the song was used in the 1997 American film The Saint, radio stations began playing it more frequently; many stations continue to keep the song on their playlists. The single was re-released in the UK in May 1997, where it reached number 9 on the UK Singles Chart.

Originally, the song was a club hit in the UK. After the commercial success and popularity of the album version of the song, the group released several remixes, some of which became hits in dance clubs and radio stations with a dance format. The version most frequently heard on radio was the remix by Nellee Hooper (which appeared as a hidden track on the album).

The music video for the song, directed by Toby Tremlett, gives off a dark atmosphere. Throughout the video, the camera focuses on Kelli Dayton singing in the middle of a dark room sitting in a dentist chair that she spins around. The camera follows Dayton as she slowly walks around the darkened room singing the song. There are also several smaller lit rooms with oval windows within the larger dark room, depicting different scenes such as a man dressed in black practicing various poses, a woman dressed in a nightgown who is vacuuming the floor, a young woman posing around a chair in a red tie shirt and black skirt, a toddler dressed in a costume pouring spaghetti from a jar and tossing it around the room, and an overweight man eating spaghetti while sitting in a recliner. The small rooms with the oval windows could depict a view into people’s private lives, and even a view into their souls. A can of worms is poured out by a band member. The other band members are usually seen lurking behind Dayton in the video, including in some scenes where the band is standing in one of the small, brightly lit rooms. At the end of the video, the people in the smaller rooms seem to freeze in place, and in the big room, the band poses at Dayton’s dentist chair, and then the lights go out.

The video features the Nellee Hooper edit of the song…

  1. Another weekend of no alcohol. And I’ll be honest, seeing as alcohol is a depressant – I’m starting to really enjoy life that little bit more. I’m more active, I’m smiling more and generally doing things that are good for the mind & body!

  2. i rang myself off the house phone cos i wanted to know what the number was. anyway just seen missed call on my notifications then & i was like eee who the fuck is ringing me, so i thought i’ll ring & see what the cunt wants. yes it was my house phone & I cba with my stupid self.

  3. So you’re going somewhere for the whole day and all of your friends will be there but I’m not invited and yet you still expect me to make your lunch? Are you for real?

    “It’s only school, mum…”

  4. I hope someday my kids remember how hilarious their mother was…

    They haven’t even mentioned it since I stole them from her in that shopping mall.
