This popped up earlier on random play and I’d forgotten how good it was- Death In Vegas’ Dirge (Cossack Apocalypse Mix). Part of a 12″ remix promo of Dirge (with One Dove’s Dot Allison on vox) the other side was the Adrian Sherwood dub remix I posted ages ago. This remix takes DiV to Russia with a lovely extended finger picking intro and some vocal samples, then ramping up the ramshackle groove for eight minutes, all mist, fog, fur hats, revolutionaries and cossacks on horseback. The remix was by The Chocolate Layers, Jarvis Cocker and Steve Mackey of Pulp who provided a remix of Black Box Recorder posted here last month. This is a really good remix if somewhat unsuited to the glorious sunshine we’ve got in M33 at the moment.

Timber Timbre has a new album out soon, the excellently titled Creep On Creepin’ On. This track Woman is great- unsettling, dramatic, rich and textured. I’ve not heard the whole album yet but if this song is anything to go by it’ll be a good ‘un. You don’t need your hood up indoors though young man.TimberTimbre-Woman.mp3
