Classic 12"s - Parlez Vous With You

Classic 12"s proved very popular last week so the theme is being carried over to this week with a few more tracks from the "baggy" era - enjoy.

In 1989 The Fall's Mark E. Smith did vocals on Coldcut's (I'm) In Deep (from their debut album What's That Noise). The following year the cut-n-paste duo returned the favor by providing a hugely propulsive, remixed backing track for Mark E. to rant over. Telephone Thing has giant beats, an enormously thick bass riff, lots of spazzed out shards of guitar, and a classic vocal performance from the man - How DARE you assume I want to parlez vous with you! I'm am amazed at how well the production on this tune holds up - so beefy and danceable yet still rocking hard. I love this track!

I wholeheartedly concur. For the uninitiated, I would also recommend 'Hit The North' and 'Victoria'.
