Dance Your Life Away

Back at NTS Andrew Weatherall delivers another first rate edition of Music’s Not For Everyone taking in artists from A (Annanan) to Z (Zahra Haji Fath Ali Tehrani). This one is an especially long, strange and in places heavy trip.

Included within is The Chairman’s latest remix, a reworking of Dance Your Life Away by audiobooks, a male-female duo newly singed to Heavenly. Weatherall takes part of the bouncing bassline, cuts the vocal up into whoops and yelps which then becomes the single phrase in the basement. A kind of punk-funk, dubby, Slits partying in early 80s New York thing. I was a bit undecided at first but several plays in I’m converted.
