Mordo Promised He Would Restore My Hand

Back to Marvel’s Strange Tales today, with Jeremy Corbyn, prior to his leading the Labour Party I imagine, ending up with an injured hand and doing Mordo’s bidding. Jeremy has clearly failed in his quest to strike back at the ancient one.

Earlier this year Siren (a chuggy electronic house duo) released a four track record. The lead song, Lulu, has been remixed by Italian cosmic-disco experts to absolute perfection. Daniele Baldelli and Marco Dionigi send the track to a lush and expansive other-world, with Devi Mamboka’s wonderful vocals floating on top. Viva Italia.

Complotto Geometrico

I finally bagged a vinyl copy of this Andrew Weatherall remix recently, two years after it first came out digitally. Seven minutes thirty six seconds of chuggy, cosmic, Italo brilliance.

Space Scribble

A few months back Italian cosmic disco duo DJ Rocca and Daniele Baldelli released a remix e.p. of songs from their Podalirius album. The lead off was a suitably sumptuous spaced out job from our friend Andrew Weatherall. His remix of Complotto Geometrico is a beaut and together with that one of Speed of Dark by Emeliani Torrini and the indie-dance epic for Jagwar Ma make up a lovely summer 2013 remix triptych. But the Weatherall  one was only one of three- the Prins Thomas remix of Space Scribble is also very, very good. If you’re familiar with Prins Thomas’s subtle, elegant, minimal disco stylings, you’ll have a good idea of what to expect.

Miss You

No, not Miss You by the hoary old Rolling Stones, Miss You by Liverpool psych-surgeons Clinic. This 2012 remix by Italian pairing Daniele Baldelli and DJ Rocca send the already pretty cosmic Clinic way on up there and out- spaced out on old synths and floating. ‘Tranquilize’ the man says, ‘tranquilize’…
