It's 1993 and you have just entered a shopping centre. As you move through the entrance, you gaze upwards at the glass dome that rises above your head, like a cathedral, its crystal-like structure shimmering against the sun. Shafts of light fall through, landing on the water feature that greets you in the centre of the welcoming vestibule. Among the chatter, the footsteps, the aromas of perfume and fried food, you hear music.
This is that music.
Expo 92 is also known as Jed Skinner, 1/3 of the live dance band Galaxians from Leeds
