Skinnerbox - Darkroom Dubs Edits #2
(£8.99 Incl VAT)
Release Date: 04.10
Two years we've had to wait for the second in Skinnerbox's Edits series on Silicone Soul's Darkroom Dubs, but as the saying goes... All good things...
Having wow'd us with their bravery in taking on Coltrane's 'A Love Supreme' on #1 - a track that's still receiving airplay from Gilles Peterson - the German duo turn their attentions from Jazz to Rock, with a brand new brace of respectful reworks.
On the A we have Skinnerbox's edit of "Bela Lugosi's Dead" by English post-punk band Bauhaus. The song was the band's first single, released on 6 August 1979 by record label Small Wonder. Often considered the first gothic rock record, many see it as a seminal classic that went on to influence the later Goth scene.
The B-side plays host to Skinnerbox's edit of “Gouge Away” by American alternative rock band, Pixies. The original features on their classic album “Doolittle” from ’89, a massive indie success in the UK. The band hugely influenced the grunge scene.
Delicate and respectful edits from the duo, that see these two classic tracks expertly tailored for the dancefloor.
