Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles were all the rage in 1990 and 'Turtle Power', from the movie soundtrack, headed up the UK top ten for four weeks (it only reached No. 4 in Ireland). This was the debut single from Partners in Kryme, New York hip hop duo James Alpern and Richard Usher, who traded under the stage names of DJ Keymaster Snow and MC Golden Voice. It was the pinnacle of a short career - Partners in Kryme released a couple of follow-up singles, but never recorded an album.
