Desperate Man (Matthew Herbert remix)

Matthew Herbert’s delicious remix of Kalabrese’s Desperate Man, vocals by Khan, from 2014. With a picture of Winona Ryder.


I couldn’t think of a Paul Simonon post-Clash dub remix (Havana 3am to the best of my knowledge weren’t remixed by anyone, nor were The Good, The Bad And The Queen) and can’t think of a post-Clash Topper one either (my knowledge of Topper’s post-Clash musical output is less sound admittedly) so after Monday and Tuesday’s post-Clash dub remix posts I’ll have to change tack.

Primal Scream released Goodbye Johnny as a single in 2013 and it came with a Weatherall remix, a drawn out, dark and moody affair. Not my favourite of Weatherall’s recent remix work but its got its moments. In fact it isn’t too far from the Two Lone Swordsmen remix of Stuka from a long time ago.

The top search return for Johnny on Google is Johnny Depp. Which gives me an excuse to post a picture of  his ex, 90s indie pin up Winona Ryder.

Drew reckons giving up smoking has affected my hormones, what with the Dot Allison and Betty Blue posts over the course of last week. I don’t know if he’s right but I thought I’d post this picture of celebrity shoplifter Winona Ryder anyway.

That Dot Allison album I mentioned (Pioneer, out December last year- did it get any press at all?) is a belter- as well as the Keith Tenniswood song I put up a few days ago there are several others that are as good as anything she’s done since the late 90s. This one, dance-pop co-written with Jagz Kooner (Sabres, Aloof), has a killer chorus and makes me throw my hands up in the air involuntarily, and wave them like I just don’t care.
