Fingers Inc Mystery Of Love
At around five minutes, a piano comes in and Owens begins to rap, testifying to a "joy and painless flowing". The track concludes with him repeating the words "love, love, love" in a joyous mantra. And that's what Mystery of Love was: a breakthrough.
You can hear the sound of musicians finding themselves in something new and exciting, and that feeling quickly transmitted itself to a wider audience — particularly in the US, where the track made No 10 Fingers Inc Mystery Of Love Billboard's 12" chart.
In England, its influence was slightly more diffuse: it was definitely not electro and definitely not rap, and the people I played it to that spring thought it was too slow and too weird. It took a few months for the Mystery of Love patch — electronic drums, synthesiser melodies, reverbed vocals and prominent, echoed handclaps — to become codified as house music. House became a fad, and its hook was Jack. Heard was not impressed by this hi-jacking of the sound that he had helped to pioneer.
Simon Witter quoted him in the notes to Another Side: "Jack means nothing to me; our songs are about experiences and beliefs. Fingers, Inc's subsequent history is complex and largely outside the scope of this blog. Heard oscillated between working with Robert Owens, making his own instrumental albums as Mr Fingers, and France Gall Zozoi Merry Merry O with vocalist Harry Dennis as The It — whose astonishing acid doo-wop torch song, Donniewas flipped with Mystery of Love on early DJ pressings.
But like all true innovations, Mystery of Love still feels contemporary, still rings true and untainted, because it delivers on the ambitious promise of the title.
