After researching this solidly for an entire 10 seconds, I finally found this...


The name is a reference to the "metal heads" used to cut grooves onto a dubplate, the metal in the dubplates themselves, and also what Goldie has called "freaks like me obsessed with the latest metal acetates". Goldie credits Grooverider with the term.

Well I'm glad that was solved. Can dump this one in the pointless bin with all the others.

No, just the pointless ones. And I'm referring to that thread as a bin because it's a container for several threads.

Can you post a relevant one this time?
