This video has a soundtrack by the world-renowned and innovative club musician Richard Melville Hall - a.k.a. 'Moby'. The title of the track is 'Not Sensitive'.

The nickname 'Moby' was given to him by his parents because of an ancestral connection to the author of 'Moby Dick' - Herman Melville being his great-great granduncle.

Its ironic that we have been given permission to use one of Moby's music tracks over footage of St. Andrews Dock, Hull, England. In 1955, the Hollywood studio Warner Bros. chose the dock for re-fitting the Hispaniola - the ship which had formerly been used in the film 'Treasure Island'. When it left the dock, fully refurbished, it was as a whaling ship with many new fittings. Renamed the 'Pequod', it went on to carry Gregory Peck as Captain Ahab in the 1956 film Moby Dick. The re-fit was a fine testimony to all the trades associated with St. Andrews Dock in Hull.

Moby is one of the most controversial figures in techno music, alternately praised for bringing a face to the notoriously anonymous electronic genre, as well as being scorned by hordes of techno artists and fans for 'diluting and trivialising the form'. In either case, Moby was one of the most important dance music figures of the early '90s, helping bring the music to a mainstream audience both in England and in America.

Moby fused rapid disco beats with heavy distorted guitars, punk rhythms, and detailed productions that drew equally from pop, dance, and movie soundtracks like an updated version of the James Bond Theme used for the Bond film 'Tomorrow Never Dies'.
