>Anglo-Franco-Germanic Disco Face Off

>
I was rummaging through my downloads folder recently, which admittedly doesn’t have the same tactile thrill as rummaging through a record collection, and found this- The Rhinohead by Von Sudenfed and Mark E. Smith remixed by Pilooski. I couldn’t remember a) even having it b) whether I’d ever heard it or c) that it even existed. Which shows how disposable mp3s are. Click, download, forget about if you don’t play straight away. So I played it, and it’s ace. Von Sudenfed managed to record an entire album with MES back in 2007. Pilooski takes them to a disco, with lovely swooshy bits and tic-tic-tic snares and angelic backing vocals, and at around three minutes floors them with the beat and the noise. Good stuff, even by the standards of all involved. Mark E Smith is used sparingly, which will either disappoint you (the Drew camp) or delight you (the C-tel camp). Either way, everyone’s a winner.
