Touched By The Hand Of…

…Cicciolina, Cicciolina.

In May 1990 Pop Will Eat Itself released a single just ahead of the Italia 90 World Cup. PWEI intended it as an alternative World Cup theme and let’s face it, given how corrupt FIFA is/was, no one would really have batted an eyelid at a dance single by a West Midlands grebo band fronted by an Italian porn star turned politician. Plus, as a song, it’s massively good fun. House pianos. Dub bassline. Horns. Fans chanting. Commentary.

Touched By The Hand Of Cicciolina (Extra Time Mix)

Rich Lane has recently done a Cotton Dub re-edit of it, updating it for 2017 in fine style. No download unfortunately but again, massively good fun.

Acapella

This is a song for late Saturday night or the early hours at some point of the weekend, somewhere hot and sweaty, rather than a Tuesday morning on the way to work. Rich Lane has done a totally unofficial Cotton Dubs remix of Kelis’ Acapella, vocal pitched down and setting the controls to the heart of the chug.

And it seems I have never posted Kelis before- which surprises me because Milkshake is a absolute floorshaker.

Back To Work Blues

Back to work today, the worst Monday of the year, a proper blue Monday. I’d much rather stay at home and play records. This should lift the spirits- an unofficial eight minute re-edit of New Order’s Vanishing Point (off 1989’s Technique) by Rich Lane. No vocals but not a second too long either.
