I do hope Lord Weatherall doesn't get too annoyed if he ever hears this - he is after all one of my all time heroes. I strongly recommend his 2009 album A Pox On The Pioneers. The track here in use however is "Feathers" from The Bullet Catcher's Apprentice EP,
Houston holds a very peculiar sentiment for me. Let's get the song out of the way first - this is the seemingly never ageing Houston bluesmen ZZ Top gone breakbeat courtesy of a 4Kuba remix of Miss Napalm. To be honest, the brothers and the amusingly named one could and should remix this themselves and re-release as I've got no hesitation in saying it would be a hit all over again. Big thanks to Simon over at APC for the artwork and initial first play exclusive.
Sometimes you want to dirty up a pop song, but despite your best intentions the pop just shines through
OK .. .time now for a bit of a rant. I reckon Orbital are possibly one of the most important electronic acts of the last twenty years. So why do they keep ripping off fans by re-issuing best of compilations. True, their latest Orbital20 does have two (or three if you go iTunes) new remixes, but in these download friendly days, is it worth getting a whole album for a couple of new, to be honest not much cop, remixes ? I'm not convinced either that this is still a definitive "best of" but if you're really interested, I've put my personal choice in the comments below. Rant over.
I'm pleased to announce yet another free remix for y'all. This time London's Voodoo Trombone Quartet get the treatment - I'd like to think I've turned the original laid back ska into something a bit, erm, orbitalesque in places. Those of you who know Madonna will know exactly which remix I'm talking about, but it was completely unintentional. Honest. Anyway ... go and buy their new album ".... again". It is ace.
Working on some more remixes just now ... but please contact me know if you are in a band or an artist that would possibly be interested in a remix!Here's some explanation from Paul VTQ himself about the band ...
And here's the next remix for y'all. This is a more breaks / old skool influenced version of the original mix up that has the Beastie Boys meeting Franz Ferdinand somewhere in a festival field. Their official website is here.
The single proper is on sale on June 1st - as soon as I have more details I'll post them up but you can get a good idea of the single from this review courtesy of Culturedeluxe.com or the live video down below. Meantime, I'd urge you to go buy their marvellous album, Free Social Soup, from either Amazon, Play.com or HMV. Seriously - it's really very good indeed.
