Solid songs, oscillating between punk rock and indie pop, well rehearsed and played live dozens of times + A week in a great studio (Franz Ferdinand's studio in Glasgow) + A great engineer (Franz Ferdinand collaborator Paul Savage from Chemikal Underground) multiplied by cult producer Gareth Jones, the man behind legendary records from Einsturzende Neubauten, Fad Gadget, Depeche Mode, Liars & These New Puritans + Cover artwork made by Chile's greatest living artist Ivan Navarro = An instant classic.
'Kick' is rough, fuelled with adrenaline and psychedelia. It's also a return to Panico's roots: 90’s indie rock and shoegaze, a touch of Gang of Four’s angular edge mixed with The Horrors and a tropical twist. Voodoo themed vocals boiling over hot garage guitars and relentless beats.
Can't wait to hear it...

Mutantek is a musician & DJ from Guadalajara Mexico. He is part of the Mix Le Fun collective. He sent me a few tracks - a bangin' electro original and a couple of remixes, including a pretty nifty rework of Psycho Killer by Talking Heads. I like 'em, so now I pass them on to you -
Kavinsky - Nightcall (Mutantek Remix)
Talking Heads - Psycho Killer (Mutantek Remix)

hopeless is back with another great '80s cover tune. In May I posted his version of ABC's classic Tears Are Not Enough, and today I give you his take on the 1982 Thompson Twins single Lies. In his usual style he has stripped it down to bass and beats and cowbell. And as usual he has accompanied it with a great little press release/story...
Unlike my previous single, Tears Are Not Enough, I did not have the good fortune of working with the Thompson Twins. In fact they were absolutely against me making this song.
Due to the pending trial I am not legally able to discuss the whole story. What I can say is that both Tom Bailey and I were both staying at the Dorchester. I was performing in London that weekend so I decided to slum it for a couple of days. From what we know now, Tom was staying at the hotel with his wife. Apparently he saw me walking in the lobby when he tried to approach me for whatever reason. My security said he looked like a threat and then madness ensued. Lets just say Tom was rushed to the doctor, doctor and love was not was he was feeling. Check back for more info concerning my trial. In the meantime enjoy this track... don’t know how long it can stay posted....
And here's the original...
