When You Kiss The Base Of My Spine

This is a funny one- Scorpio Rising was the title track off Death In Vegas’ third album back in 2002, featuring guest appearences from Hope Sandoval, Liam Gallagher and Paul Weller, some electroclash, some of their scuzzy fuzzy rock/dance stuff and tons of rather good Bollywood strings. This remix came off the Scorpio Rising single- the other remix was by loopy robe wearers The Polyphonic Spree. Whoever thought it would be a good idea to get The Scientist to rework this rock song as a dub reggae track, while still keeping Liam Gallagher’s none more raspy vocal, deserves a pat on their back for their sense of humour if nothing else. I think it works pretty well surprisingly, though Liam’s album length collaboration with Lee Perry or The Mad Professor remains something we’ll just have to imagine.
