We've all had our enjoyment from the artwork for this Xiu Xiu/Parenthetical Girls split single, aping everyone's favourite Morrissey as it does. The tunes do too, 'I Am Hated For Loving' is Xiu Xiu's track but features the fella from Parenthetical Girls on vocals and it's a three minute 8-bit manglefest which treats the original with very little respect.. In the nicest possible way, mind. It sort of repaints our dear Mozface as a modern indie geek outcast, crying into his Gameboy. I had a Gameboy when I was a kid but I headbutted and broked it 'cos I couldn't beat Sid Justice on a WWF wrestling game.. They made him so unfair, the fuckers! Parenthetical Girls' source material is a bit more recognizable - it's 'Handsome Devil' and they've turned it into a psychologically unhinged indie rock mess which is actually totally great we reckon. Strange to think that Morrissey's vocals could be out over-the-topped but here's the proof! Upset the Rhythm have brought 500 slatey grey 7" vinyls into the world.
