“It’s On,” by Flowered Up. You’re Welcome.

From their Wikipedia entry:

The band was formed in mid-1989 by singer Liam Maher, along with his younger brother Joe (guitar). After a few changes in personnel, the settled line-up included Tim Dorney (keyboards), Andy Jackson (bass guitar), and John Tuvey (drums), with dancer Barry Mooncult adding to their live shows. After releasing two singles (“It’s On” and “Phobia”) on Heavenly Records, both of which were minor hits, Flowered Up signed to London Records and recorded their only album, A Life With Brian, in 1991. “Take It” had lyrics from Joe Strummer. The group appeared on the covers of both Melody Maker and NME before releasing the album.

A Life With Brian contained many of their popular live songs, as well as new versions of the previously released singles. Not long afterwards, Flowered Up released the 13-minute long single “Weekender” on Heavenly,[2] with a video directed by W.I.Z. starring Lee Whitlock and Anna Haigh. After much publicised drug problems with some members of the band, and unproductive (and some unreleased) studio work, the band split up. Keyboardist Tim Dorney went on to form Republica.

A Life With Brian was re-released by London Records as The Best of Flowered Up, and included the original version of “Weekender”. Flowered Up tried to re-form in 2007, but Dorney refused, and the planned reunion tour was cancelled. On 20 October 2009, Liam Maher died of a heroin overdose, aged 41. In November 2012 Joe Maher died.
