Hurling Their Own Powers Against Them

One of this year’s treats has been a remix by Chris and Cosey of Different Days, the title track of The Charlatans latest album. Rude Audio, a London based collective, have done a completely unofficial re-edit of Chris and Cosey’s already rather gorgeous, Balearic remix. Rude Audio have pared the vocals back, dubbed it up and let the lovely, bubbling synths take centre stage.

In the picture the Fantastic Four’s own powers have been combined by this set of magic gloves and this will enable them to be totally defeated–now– and forever!! By hurling their own powers– magnified many times– against them!!

Rude Audio

I  got an email on Friday, unsolicited music submission, from a man called Mark. The tone of the email kept me reading as did the sentence ‘Andrew Weatherall and Don  Letts have been playing them’. Four links provided and I replied saying I’d listen. And I’m glad did.

This isn’t really Monday morning music, it’s Saturday night stuff. It’s my Dad’s birthday today and he wouldn’t get these either. But there”s some rather excellent acid house going on here. Rude Audio are a south London and Geordie concoction, based in Peckham and Herne Hill. The first one I listened to was this, Crystal Pylons, a dancefloor stomper.

Knockemdub has been spun by Don Letts on BBC6, spaced out and dubby…

This one, User, was Weatherall’s pick, played on Music’s Not For Everyone back in April- a stuttering reggae style beat and echoey vocals, not too far from The Orb’s Ultrabass remixes.

Half Moon Lane Glitter takes us back to the dark back room of a club, some slo-mo action…

Rude Audio’s website asks the question ‘where are all those chunky, dubby, riffy, mind-melting, epic, progressive, Balearic tunes when you need them?’ Right here.
