These Are Dark Days

One of the records I played early on at the party on Friday night was this 1990 Andrew Weatherall remix, slightly overlooked in his back catalogue I think. Sly and Lovechild were a clubby duo, very of the time, but they never really took off and a 1993 album was their last shot. The remix opens with the voice of  the Reverend Jasper Williams, full of warnings and dread, and despite the ‘we feel real good tonight’ announcement this song stays moody. Ominous synths, sitar and kettle drums give this a darker edge compared to some of his other work from the period. None the worse for it either.

The World According To…Weatherall (Soul Of Europe Mix)

This Justin Robertson remix of another Sly and Lovechild song, Spirit Of Destiny, has a dub-house groove and horns. Lionrocking.
